What is Apple's design philosophy?The matted back plate area must have some functionality, because otherwise it does seem to go against Apple's design philosophy.
I really like the idea of a metal back, although I'm not sure having it painted black, or powder coated black, makes sense. If anything, they should really try mimicking the look of the MacBooks, iPad, iMac, Mac Pro and use silver painted mono-block aluminum as a design ethic (factoring in whatever is required of the antennae needs). But that's just me.
I thought these photos were already debunked in the other thread?Gizmodo just had those up for a little while until they silently removed the post about those pictures altogether. I can't see a reason they would do this other than Apple forcing them to, which would mean they're real.
You do know that you don't have to get a new phone when your contract is up, right? Your existing plan will still be in effect, until you choose to buy a new phone, whether that's for the cash price or for full subsidyif that's how their next phone will look - I like it, too.
I won't be getting it though - my contract is up in August - and thus, an iPhone 4s will have to do.
Yes, I am fully aware of that.You do know that you don't have to get a new phone when your contract is up, right? Your existing plan will still be in effect, until you choose to buy a new phone, whether that's for the cash price or for full subsidy
Call me crazy, but if you're getting the new phone in August, might as well wait the 1-2 months with your HTC Desire and get the new iPhone??? I don't know . . . that's just what I would do O.OYes, I am fully aware of that.
However I am using my girlfriends iPhone 4s as I couldn't stand using my HTC Desire any longer. She needs the phone back as soon as possible. That date is 1st August 2012.
So, I will get myself a 32Gb white iPhone 4s then and I will skip the next iPhone and get whatever iPhone is out in 2014.
