    So how do you suppose gaming on the iPhone and touch will be effected? I'm doubtful they will do this. Sliding finger in a bowl instead of a flat surface to draw.

    Agreed. The... erm... "unique" mock-up isn't helping things either.

    I just can't see Apple going curved display glass--it'll almost certainly mess with their "anorexia" they try to embody in their designs--thinner in one place means thicker elsewhere.

    EDIT: Sure, Apple's uses curved convex backs a lot, but not on the front display. Nor can I remember Apple using a concave design on their touch-based stuff.

    Yeah so do anti-glare screen protectors. And they don't make the phone look retarded.

    I think a curved screen would be a nice change and a curved body as well. the iphone body is kinda boring now it needs a update.

    I'll pass, I like laying my phone flat on my desk. Doesn't wobble like most phones do.

    Funny. Theyre saying curved screens help with glare, but I still see plenty of glare on those phones in that pic.

    I don't really want a curved screen. It's cool, but doesn't really sound like Apple.

    No matter if they call it the iPhone 4s or the iPhone 5 it's still the iPhone 5 because it's the fifth generation iPhone.

    I see people putting this in their pocket, then bumping into a counter or something and cracking it in half.
