From Rose's Twitter:
Who cares what Kevin Rose thinks will happen?
People who follow Kevin Rose on Twitter.
What would the point be? Apple are using plastic backs for better reception why go back.
I don't care what he thinks, his rumors hold no more credibility with me than the ones that I stumble across anywhere else.
Well, he has been right about Apple stuff a few times, but he's also been wrong an equal amount.
But I hardly think this deserves a thread.
Because he's been correct in the past (and also very, very off base). Wonder why he's posting it... he's discussed his opinion on "leaks" in the past and how companies will do it on purpose for free press - is he participating in this or is it a true leak?
Whatever happens, I expect a major cosmetic change with the iPhone next year. And all of those people complaining this year about not being able to upgrade will be the fortunate one's next year to be eligible for it. It all balances out.
well he's got a half-decent track record with rumors.
If you throw enough darts at a dart board, you'll eventually hit the bullseye.
1) I call the iPhone "unibody" enough as it is.
2) Plastic backs were made to increase reception; aluminum would be a step BACKWARD.
The next gen iPhone will be multi-core as well. You can take that to the bank.
unless apple has made their own special magic metal which lets radio waves pass through it (applelunium?) this will never happen, Kevin Rose has got 1 rumor! (new nanos) he is not king of apple rumors like everyone thinks he is.
i agree, i don't think it should be called "unibody" but just "aluminum" instead.
Just a new case would make people buy one. I, for one, even though I am getting a 3GS am kind of upset it still looks the same. And I really want some icon updates, they look tired.
I actually prefer the plastic back. It's "grippier" to me, and I think that the scratches on it look better than on a metal back. I'll stick with the 3G S, thanks.
I'd also expect a big cosmetic iPhone push next year, at least by Q4 2010. Unibody though... sounds like the first gen iPhone but without that strip on the back. Might look like a bit retro
Lets have some coloured iPhones, pink for me, so people know how much of a man I am.
If they can figure out a way to go back to aluminum and keep the signals strong, I hope they do it.
The build quality felt infinitely better than the 3G.
Not to mention that it would also be much more in line with their environmental goals.
Hasn't he only been really right about stuff like once or twice? With everything else being semi-obvious guesses that half of the internet was already making?
I don't know if I'd like an aluminum phone myself. Image the reception problems it would have if it was made entirely out of aluminum!
The icons are very tired.
I do think that next year's phone will be a BIG STEP FORWARD in terms of DESIGN and POWER.
They could use a metal body as an antenna as long as they use something conductive or whatever. Not aluminium.
I love when people think things without any evidence. How many people were 150% convinced we would get a front facing phone? Yeah, they went back into the woodwork.
I noticed a big improvement from the 1st gen iphone to 3g in terms of reception. I bet it's got to do as much with improved hardware as it does the plastic case.
(p.s. go deacs!)
