    I'd be afraid of snapping that in half, it's too thin.

    I think I would snap it in half just by making a phone call :(

    I like it, but it would PROBABLY be hard to hang on to. Give it 3 years and the current iPhone will be considered huge.

    I really hope iPhones don't get that thin. IMO the iPhone 4 is already getting dangerously thin and slippery.

    I dont like this even remotely as much as the design rendering posted by macforums on Aug. 10th. This looks too much like the original IMO and that design didnt wow me like the one from the previously noted Aug. 10th macforum rendering based on leaked case designs from overseas.

    I guess I will be the minority. I like it a lot.
    I didn't like the tear drop of the leaked pics earlier at all. I want something more symmetrical like the iPhone has been the whole time.
    Guess that is a 4" screen? That would be perfect. Not to big and a little bit bigger.

    Doesn't look too thin to me.

    Look amazing in my opinion. And if it was liquid metal or something, I wouldn't have to worry about cracking it

    I generally hate all the mockups that have been made, but I actually like this one. Hope the back would be aluminum as the back of the iPad.

    I approve

    I dig the design... especially like that it's still square and blocky despite being thin.

    I don't like the curved phones coming out these days... I prefer having a flat bottom on the dock like how it is now. I hated docking my 4th gen iPod Touch and it's weird curved back.

    That is way too thin - but knowing Apple and the future, I wouldn't be surprised if its that thin in 5 years. Heck in 10 years, the Macbook Pro/Air, iPad and iPhone will be paper thin, but thats the future.

    I do like it, seems like it still suffers from signal problems though :p

    Too thin, in my opinion. I wouldn't want it to get any thinner than the current iPod touch, and that's already pushing it.

    A point will be reached when making it thinner will be pointless and impractical; this mock-up is beyond that point.

    I just hope Apple realizes "thinner isn't allways better" this is why I love my iPhone 4s. I'm also worried about the new 15" MacBook Pro/Air being more "form over function" not to mention switching back to Nvidia for GPU's Yuck :(

    If the screen really does go up to the edges i wonder how they cope with stray fingers constantly resting on part of the screen as you hold it in your hand.

    The current iPhone has a small border to cope with this.

    iPhone4/4s looks great but it definitely feels harder to hold than my old 3G. If it ever got that thin the outer band would need to be VERY grippy.
