New iPhone leaked in Photography Gear and Technique Posted April 22, 2010 How unApple .. they have made the phone ugly ? why ? they even just released the ipad with similar looks to the iphone .. and yet this thing is really more htc from last year looking. edit .. i say ugly but i kinda like it .. i guess i meant they have deviated from their what we have come to think of normal look ! I do like the look of the current version but think it's design is somewhat impractical. The round smooth bottom has such low friction on a smooth surface that a little tap can send it flying off a desk. Mine probably would not have survived more than a few days without a skin. I don't know anyone who uses a naked iphone. It seem such a waste to put in what must have been a great deal of engineering to make it so slim only to have to put a thick rubber skin on it for practical use. I would much rather have the bottom flat and a little more sticky.
