Leaked iPhone template

As the impending 3G iPhone release approaches, rumors of its potential design, specifications, and features are abound, but some theorize that people are confusing multiple devices which could indicate an "iPhone nano". iLounge writes that select launch partners have supposedly received design templates that point to a 3.5-inch screen on the new version, countering observations that put the screen size at 2.8-inches.

The templates show a slightly tapered design on the top and bottom, which contrasts the current model's relatively consistent thickness. It also indicates additional sensor positions (potentially a second front-facing camera), a slightly rounded face, and several color options - white, black, and red.

The bottom of the potential iPhone design shows large cutouts where the speaker grills are located on the current model, with two additional holes and a rounded dock connector.

    practical limits

    I really appreciated getting rid of my big bulky bag phone 15 years ago but now these phones are getting too small. It's like talking into a Triscuit®. An even smaller screen on the iPhone will drive away a good number of customers. Not everyone wants a Lilliputian-sized device.

    Macnn reports..

    That the new iPhone was going to be bigger. Then smaller. And now its pretty much the same?In short, Macnn doesn't actually know, and is in fact just filling a space on the news pages with made up rubbish and speculation. Neither of which are anywhere near factual. Just guesses which any of us could have made.Come on guys, get it together!
