    I like this one a lot better because of the backing and rounded edges. but the dark titanium of the other concept is nicer. I still would buy either in a heartbeat.

    thoughts?

    Way better than the first one, I don't really know about the slant on the back, if you put it on a table in landscape it would be tilted weird, but it would work nice for portrait.

    I like the colors and iChat though. The screen also looks a lot longer, which as A developer I don't like because that means all the apps in the app store would have to be changed to fit the new aspect ratio...

    Looks a bit like the Toshiba TG01.

    I'd copy and paste a link, but I'm on mobile Safari.

    Eww... too thin. I don't want something that's as thin as the touch, that's just too extreme IMO.

    Like the software, don't like the white round the edges.

    I think its pretty far out there especially being entirely in white, the fact that the top goes from thick to thin just makes it a concept from Gizmodo thats all.

    Honestly if the device were black/silver aka 3G iPhone but included the ichat cam on the front and the cool looking gizmodo inspired screen mock up and google maps on the bottom then I can see that as being a legit mock up.

    I like the concept I could see a multi touch screen taking up a majority of the device but black/silver definitely screams iPhone/Apple.

    Too bad there's no room to actually put any components in a case that thin...

    I think that's pretty sweet. I would (and will no matter what the changes are) get the next model that comes out.

    I prefer the old metal bezel look and its too thin. I hate a phone as thick as a credit card. However, the software implementation looks great.

    Phone looks awesome, in my opinion. But I don't get the whole ichat thing. The only people you can have a video call with is somebody else with an iPhone and I only know two other people with iPhones. It would be a program that is rarely, if ever, used.

    I would assume you could chat with people on the desktop version of iChat as well, but I guess we'll find out, if they implement it.

    I don't like the slanted back. It seems like it would be weird to handle if you were playing a game in the landscape mode.

    Oh yeah, haha. I guess that would make sense. But then again, I don't anybody who has enough money to own a Mac... so it would be useless to me.

    Too thin. It's a minimum thickness to create enough volume for a decent battery. Bit of artistic license I guess. Good quality mock up though

    Why would it be called the 'iPhone 4G'? Will it running on AT&Ts 4G network?

    Don't like the way it gets thinner! IT would dance like a see-saw to much sitting on a flat surface

    How did you come up with that? That pic does not give that impression.

    Yeah it does... look at the side-view! The top is thicker than the bottom!
