Early renderings of the iPhone 5, featuring an aluminum backing.
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
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 (
), meaning iPhone users will have to learn

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.

it'll also sport a pixy dust dispenser
Correction, it will be called an "iPixy Dust Dispenser" and of course, all three of the words will be patentened separately by Apple.

Failing to spell while trying to be witty troll is fail.
