    both wrong, you hold the phone sideways and it turns into a jet pack. The holes are for the flames

    Can we stop with these automagical unicorn humping rocketship fuel powered hovercraft jokes? They're so trite and stopped being funny last year.

    I think the fingerprint scanner is a cool idea, but it's probably too soon to implement.

    Here we go, patently apple called it back in April 2010. Everything I just said.

    Straight from the article.

    I wouldn't be surprised if apple included face recognition to unlock the iPhone.

    Where are these holes on the back of the new iPhone? Seems like there's only the camera and LED holes on the back. It does seem a bit too early to implement such a recent purchase, but would be a fantastic addition.

    Would be awesome.

    I don't think we knew about the unicorn humping until at least 2 months ago. Troll.:D

    Reading more into it I believe the back panel is really a finger print reading sensor in conjunction with a new camera for added security.

    All this is speculation obviously.

    The OP is mistaken. The mysterious hole is on the new iPod touch, not iPhone.

    Yep, the iPod Touch has a camera-sized hole at the other end, but it is too small to be a fingerprint scanner (Think the end of your little finger in size)

    Edit: oh and I believe any fingerprint scanner will be incorporated in the home button, or more likely the sleep/wake (AKA power) button.

    No I was referring to the one between the camera and led, the iPad mini has the same type hole.

    While fingerprint recognition would be great if your phone is ever stolen or lost, most are still too easily faked if you have access to the owner.

    Unless they begin doing multiple, simultaneous tests (ie, fingerprint scan while checking for pulse), I wouldn't fully trust them for my security.

    Rofl, I have actually met so many people in real life who are completely clueless with tech that make statements such as "Isn't the next iPhone suppose to have a projector keyboard??" Problem is, they are being completely serious.

    Fingerprint plus live face detection (blinking) with the front camera
