I don't think Apple will put an Apple logo on the front like that...thats tacky. The iPhone will probably be that thin in a few years...not 2012, though...not with LTE...but you never know...Apple loves THIN.

I think equally tacky would be adding Steve Jobs' initials to any product, especially if it wasn't something he designed. It would probably be viewed as pandering to his memory, and I don't think they'd stoop to that level.

I agree. Steve Jobs created Apple, restored Apple, but in return Apple helped build his celebrity. I'm sure Jobs wouldn't want a phone named after him anyway.

lol. My thoughts exactly. Not going to lie, I do have some screen envy every time I see my girlfriend playing games on her Samsung Infuse.

It would be nice to see a midsize-model iPhone between the iPad and the iPhone. I don't know if I would buy it, but I definitely see a market for it.

Am I the only one who thought of how thin Steve was getting when I saw how thin this iPhone SJ is? I mean it was inspired from Steve...

Although Steve may not have actually designed the next iPhone, he pretty much put every ounce of time and energy into it. He was working on it up until the day before he died and made it his "special" project when he knew his time was running out. This next iPhone will be more SJ then any other...But ur correct in saying Apple would never label it the "SJ" edition.

If they call it SJ I'm definitely not buying it. Does anyone else think it would be sick for them to try and cash in on his death like that?

Y'all know this is a concept from a 3rd party, and will never go into production, right? You're treating it like it's going to happen.

I'd like it if on that phone they made Siri's responses to be more like Steve's:

"Shut up."

"You're an idiot."

"I'm not looking for that, I know what you really need."

"Do us both a favor: sell me, and buy a windows phone."

...No, I don't have $100.
