Is this the iPhone 5?

Recommended Posts

Robbie Ride    24

Hey guys,

I seen post on MSN UK of an iPhone design concept and i have to say i quite like it.

The iPhone 4S is still quite fresh on our shelves, but we're already looking forward to what the iPhone 5 has in store.

Independent designer Frederico Ciccarese has pulled together his ideas about what the iPhone 5 could look like - and we can only hope that Apple's designers are thinking along the same lines.

More info and pictures at http://tech.uk.msn.c...be-the-iphone-5 and http://www.ciccarese...om/?page_id=398

What do you all think, should Apple use this design concept?

Looks like someone just combined a magic mouse with an iPhone.

Haha. Never gonna happen. Can you imagine typing on that when it's laying flat. Nightmare dot com.

I doubt it. I don't like the curve back. I want the flat back because I'd like to set the phone down on it's back ..

If I set it down on it's curve back, it will become a seesaw. Get it?

From an aesthetic's point view I do quite like it. But it won't happen, that image has been around for awhile.

There's not a single advantage to having a rounded back. Plus it just looks silly.

Silly design, they want away from the rounded back with the iPhone 4 and I highly doubt they'll be going back..rounded iPad esque edges yes, but full curved back no.

Do people actually do that?

I don't think I've seen such a bad piece of concept art before in my entire life.

Very, very good point. I can't see it happening either.

It would wobble like hell, with such a concave back.

I've done it once or twice, and it's very uncomfortable

That would actually be difficult to type on.

I grant you a E for effort.

I agree with every one of you but it's another render to be added to the pile, every revision come with its own renders and concepts that don't come from Apple but if they did release there own i think they would blow these ones out of the water.

I doubt it would be hard to manufacture but we will never find out

The design looks nice, but it's impractical. Like others have said, you basically can't use it if it's laying on a flat surface.

Hoe many people truly use their iPhone on a flat surface, it's impracticle and if Apple were to release a product matching this concept i bet people would adapt to it

I don't know why people think this looks cool or apple would ever do something so stupid. Not only is this very impractical (the way you'd have to hold it, use it, even keep it in your pocket), to how oddly shaped the hardware modifications would need to be (including how weak the edges would be if you dropped it or bent it any further), to how UGLY that is.
