Kinda reminds me of the 1st gen iPod Nano.

I dunno bout the new design, personally I like the 3G/3GS style better...

but the new design is still a bit sexy, dont get me wrong :D

I'm not quite sure how I feel about the "new" iPhone. I like how it looks but I cant get over the seams, they look very out of place. I'm currently in the process of getting a second 3GS (it was a really good deal cos of a voided warranty) which I may choose to keep as an iDroid phone when that becomes a stable option. I doubt I will own the 4th iPhone as I am a student and Apple products are really expensive here.

Overall, I like the new design but I think it might be uncomfortable with its sharp edges.

I love the new design, love it's exact shape, square-blocky, industrial design.

I love it's front and back are completely flush without having anything wrapped around them.

I'll likely be getting the new model for two reasons. My 3G contract is up this summer and the battery life of my 3G has dropped off tremendously over the last couple of months. I'm sure its because of how I used it....I'd let the battery get down to 40% and then charge it rather than running it out.

As for the new design...I like it fine. It should make texting on a flat surface a lot easier.

I prefer the new one, it`s beautiful, sleek, sexy, looks very sturdy.

P.S. I couldn`t care less about the seams, I don`t understand why many people are obsessing about that.

The new one all the way....seams and all!...

the 3GS is still a nice piece of design, but the new one looks super sleek, plus definitely fits in with the unibodies:D

I can see it now, my uMBP, silver 5G nano and iPhone 4:cool:

I love the new design. Bring it on.
Yes, I agree. Finally something different. It's more Apple-like, in my opinion. I already didn't understand it why people hated it when people thought it was a fake Chinese one. I like the design, it's thin and it's something totally different: I really love it.

I like the fact that there are seperate buttons for volume, but the onliest thing I don't like about that is that those buttons are not so nice.

The new one kind of looks like a Nokia. Not sure if I'm liking it or not.

As much as I love the new design, I don't see the point of the seams... That kills it for me, doesn't seem like an Ive design to me.

I think the new design is much better than the 3GS. It brings the iPhone in line with the other Mac products in terms of looks.

However, it's what's inside that will have the Android fanboys saying how much better the EVO is in terms of specs. Just wait. It's coming.
