    Saw this on 9to5 mac and would LOVE this. Nice mix of 3gs and 4. Plus, it could totally house a 4 inch screen.

    I personally like it as I've always preferred the curviness of the 3G's. Great mock-up!

    It does look nice.

    You left a word out in your post though, and mixed up a couple words, I think you meant, 'it could totally rock' instead of "it rock totally".

    Haha. Yeah, I was editing as you were grammAR policing. Thanks though.

    If only the back was aluminum. I miss the aluminum of the original iPhone, but I realize it did cause reception issues.

    It looks amazing, I'll give you that.

    But I've grown too fond of the perfectly-flat back on my i4. I don't think I could go back to a curved back. So ultimately I have to give it the thumbs down no matter how nice it looks.

    I love the iPhone 4, I don't really miss the curviness too much. With that said though, if the back was glass on that mock-up, I would be able to live with it. And in white. It would be another beautiful phone, just like the 4 is. So, I agree it is a nice mock-up, and I wouldn't mind seeing it come to fruition.

    I think you meant "Grammar", as opposed to "Grammar".

    /Spelling, punctuation and grammar police.

    The mock-up is good; however, I prefer the iPhone 4 for its lack of a rounded back, which in my eyes, in wasted space.

    Dude, unless you are a cop going after Kelsey Grammer, you mean grammar police. Not cool to bust on others when you get it wrong too. Or you could just lay off being the internet grammar police. ;)

    That render is sexy though.

    Grammar and spelling are two different properties.

    Love it. I miss the curved back of the 3G/3GS design.

    That's one of the better-looking mock-ups I've seen. I'd probably buy that if it were true. If apple redesigns the 5, it'll probably sport some curviness.

    Hellz no!

    Looks like the BlackBerry Bold 9000 (original) hooked up & bumped ugly with an iPhone 3gs and where forced to raise the offspring.

    that looks really ugly. I think the op needs his/her eyes checked.

    A couple of months ago I would have agreed... but I've grown to love the flat back

    Looks good. First mockup of anything I've probably ever liked. Would be better if they left the iPhone 4 side buttons though

    I like it. But, I think that Apple won't go back to the curve. Once you go flat, you never go back. :D

    Going by the dock connector for a perspective of how thick it would be (if that's the standard 30 pin connector), the amount of room for a beefy battery appears to be lacking somewhat.

    I thought I heard somewhere that Apple was going to have to go to the universal USB connector because of the EU?

    Am I wrong?
