Have been looking at the new iP5s and find the middle band of aluminum on the white phone (carbon on the black phone ?) curious. It doesn't look particularly nice on the white phone and isn't very apple like to not have one type of material used on one side of a device. I don't ever recall and side of a machine being broken up by two different materials. It's either all the same material (macbook, macbook pro etc) or one material per side (3Gs etc). Do you think they were forced by electronics/physics to do that and it's also functioning as some kind of insulation for the antenna? Isn't that band located where your hand would be holding the phone?
