    In most of the iPhone 5's pictures/mockups, there is a giant home button.. why?

    It implies gestures and touch capabilities. Personally, I don't like the look either but we'll see.

    the thread is even still on page 1 of this forum. People just don't bother looking before creating new threads these days

    In my opinion, the functionality the button brings could be there, but I doubt it'd look larger. All the cases have is a cutout for SOMETHING. Not necessarily ALL home button. It could be a normal sized home button surrounded by a touch area, which the cases have to leave exposed. Thats how I think Apple would do it, if they were to do it
