The latest iPhone may have a 4" screen, but it's basically the same old tried and true design

When it comes to next generation iPhone devices, it appears that Apple just can't plug the leaks of information to the public. In the case of the iPhone 4, a prototype was lost in a bar and subsequently wound up in the hands of Gizmodo. With the iPhone 4S -- and now with the "New iPhone" -- the leaks came from suppliers.
The latest leak on the "New iPhone" front comes from iLab Factory which has pictures of a fully assembled device (sans internal electronics). The repositioned speaker jack is clearly evident along with the smaller, 19-pin dock connector. The assembled device also confirms that Apple is going with a two-tone design theme for the "New iPhone", with the volume button, power button, and upper/lower halves of the back plate matching the color of the front plate of the device.
This latest leak also confirms that Apple must really love the overall design aesthetic that was initiated with the iPhone 4. We're guessing that Jony Ive must subscribe to the Porsche method of revamping products by making changes so subtle that you have to squint very hard to notice the new design details from generation to generation (a la Porsche 911).
But enough rambling, here are the shots of the assembled "New iPhone":

Just reiterating what retrospooty above me said. You're so emotionally involved in your argument and so intent on making someone at odds with you look stupid that a lot of your argument loses credibility. Step back, state your point, and most of all - be less angry. If your statement holds merit, and in this case it does, it will stand without all of your tyrades against the other person.

The fact that you both agree with my points demonstrates both your posts are irrelevant.

To be clear, I don't care what opinion you take of me, an intelligent reader would read any anger or emotion in what I factually state.

Don't confuse security and intelligence with anger, and don't try to lecture someone far, far more intelligent than you.

And by the way, anyone who disagrees that Apple lost out on some sales due to not releasing a new model, or claims that Apples sales of iPhones are limited by what it can produce, DOESN'T have a valid point and IS stupid.

You say I may be wrong, but I'm not, because I don't make claims unless I know them to be correct. That's the difference between us, you see.
