  • New White iPhone May Be ALL White

    image via iSpazio

    Another leak from the far East has given a glimpse of what the next-generation iPhone may look like: this time, it's a purported front faceplate for the white model that suggests that the entire device may be white. Take this news with about a pound of salt, as the parts came from TaoBao, the "Chinese eBay," and the ultimate source of the parts is unknown. Still. the news was intriguing enough for the Italian site iSpazio to create the artist's rendition of an all-white iPhone pictured above.

    Engadget's Richard Lai turned up the parts and contacted the seller. The story seemed a little shady, as they didn't know what a silver protrusion at the top was supposed to be for, and gave a definite "maybe" to an order of 15 to 20 pieces. Lai's dubious inquiries were met with the assertion that "there's always a back door to [iPhone manufacturer] Foxconn as long as you wave cash at someone."

    True or not, the white case depicted in the mockups really shows off the clean lines of the new model, and strongly suggests a kinship to the iMac. It's far from accidental, of course: both the iMac and the iPhone were designed by Jonathan Ive, who also designed the iPod and the MacBook.

      If this is true, I really like it and I bet a statement somewhere in a not-too-distant Apple keynote will be..."we found a way to to build the iPhone out of a single block of aluminium...without compromising the quality of the signals..."

      Let's expect an all aluminum iPhone upgrade sometime in the near future!

      Might just be me, but the all-white design instantly reminded me of a white G1/myTouch 3G

      I think that the thing above the ear piece is where the light sensors go now. I just think that front plate on the right is not finished, It needs the black cover. That's why you don't see the the opening on the left one.

      I don't get it, all these leaks.
      First gizmodo got their hands on an iPhone 4G prototype, then an ipod touch with camera showed up in vietnam, now another iPhone 4G prototype?

      What's wrong with apple?
      Are they doing this on purpose, perhaps?

      Paul, thank you for explicitly stating up front how we need to be critical of this information. I love when editors actually report the truth and don't try to blow it up with fluff.

      Actually ceramic is much harder than glass. I have a ceramic watch and the thing is so tough it doesn't show scratches at all in the year that I have been wearing it. I also dropped it on cement once and it shows no signs of wear at all. There is a reason why certain things are expensive.

      On the Mohs scale Diamonds rate a 10, Ceramic is between 7-9 (Aluminum Oxide Ceramic) while Glass rates a 5.5-6 on the hardness scale. Ceramic also can easily break glass.

      Mohs scale

      Although I don't see why Apple would use ceramic as it would cost more than glass.

      EDIT: Here is a Mythbusters segment about it. Pretty cool.

      haha, awesome, i was totally going to point out how A. Car theives use ceramic spark plugs to shatter car windows with ease, and B. .....have you ever tried smashing a spark plug with a hammer?? It takes effort.

      [EDIT] OH HAHA! I swear I didn't know that's what you were driving at or that mythbusters did something on that! That's awesome.
