New iPhone will reportedly feature aluminum casing and redesigned antenna

Lump this one squarely in the rumor column: The upcoming iPhone 5 will eschew the glass back casing of the iPhone 4 for aluminum back casing.

At least that's the word from Macotakara, which Macrumors picked up. "Decision to design similar to iPod touch instead of using glass is supposed that Apple seems to stop problems which are told widely damages from scratching, difficulties of painting white and weight of glass," reads the Chinese-to-English translation.

Also according to the report, the antenna will be redesigned for seemingly no reason at all (that's sarcasm), meaning iPhone users will have to learn a whole new way to hold the phone.

The iPhone 5 is also reported to sport the new A5 processor that Apple recently unveiled in its forthcoming iPad 2. If Apple follows its usual release schedule, the new iPhone should be announced this summer.

GOD doesn't have more than one name and that is GOD. Trust me on this one because you don't want to find out the hard way.

Ugh...I'm all for letting people believe whatever they want but give it a rest. The dude wasn't trying to slight God.

Actually you are absolutely incorrect. The name you were looking for is not GOD, it is actually The Messiah Steve Jobs.
