    Freakin awesome. There's no way we arent getting a redesign.

    Wayyyy too many case makers are buying into this.

    Now if we could just get a freakin invite already.

    very strange that Apple would allow this before its announced ? Could this be a error by case mate or just a stunt to get sales early ?

    I like the new design. Looks like it may be much better to hold in you hand like the 3G design. The volume buttons make it seem like they are unifying the design with the mac lineup?

    I'm sure case mate's visitor numbers just went through the roof :)

    LEAKED iPhone five backsides! It's made out of aluminum! They are teasing us with the front though. That Vroom case almost shows it but the angle is just too steep. Oh well. Still amazing that we know it exists now for sure.

    Anyone else save the jpgs before they're forced to take them down?

    Actually, second thought, if Apple forces them to take down the pics, it will be a verification from Apple about the new design. How will they play this.

    Any news is good news I suppose

    As Long as there is a bigger screen that's all that matters.

    Looks like the LG optimus Black. I smell a lawsuit.

    If that is indeed the iPhone 5, then it looks like a step backwards (button-wise). The buttons on the iPod Touch 4G are not as easy to press as the iPhone 4 buttons.

    last one. It looks like case-mate is starting to kill off the links. The splash page for iPhone 5 has been converted to a rumor page.

    They took them down. Good thing I saved them onto my flashdrive. :)

    And....they're down. Got to see one detail sheet and the overall lineup (though I didn't snap a screenshot of the overall lineup, I did get the Verge case one.) Now they have a "sign up for news" page with a 'collection of rumors' info sheet, saying they have the inside scoop, featuring a slimmer, 4" design with elongated home button.

    Good find.

    "The debate continues on whether the new iPhone will be an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S. From our inside resources, it appears that Apple will be indeed launching both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S in early October. The iPhone 4S will feature the same form factor as the iPhone 4 but will be upgraded with the latest technology, including the A5 dual-core processor and 8 mega-pixel camera."

    Lends credence to all the existing case leaks, as well as the screen protector leak. Notice on the one angled shot, where you can't see the whole front, you can see that the speaker on the phone is much higher than on the 4/3Gs...looks like close to edge to edge screen.

    If these ARE real, I doubt they actually have the device in hand. Showing a silver "part" inside of the case proves nothing about the upcoming iPhone.

    They just took them down which pretty much confirms they are legit.

    We're getting a redesigned iPhone 5.

    Yup. Looks like they're going off the previous rumors. And hoping their inside sources are right.

    Case makers don't need to have a fully functioning phone... just a complete and final shell. ;)
