    Default iPhone 5 To Have Curved Screen?



    Digitimes is reporting today the next iPhone may have a curved screen (old fan-made mock-up pictured above).

    Digitimes, citing industry sources, is claiming Apple has purchased 200 or 300 glass-cutting machines. The expensive glass-cutting equipment will be used by glass makers wary of making such an expensive investment on their own. According to their source, the machines will be stored at "associated assembly plants and will be brought online once yield rates for the production of curved glass reaches a satisfactory level."

    This of course is in contrast to other reports, and even Digtimes' previous reports, that the next iteration of the iPhone would use the same form factor as the iPhone 4. However, if Apple does implement curved displays they would most likely resemble Samsung's "Countour Display," implemented in the Nexus S. The idea behind the slightly concave glass of the Nexus S is that it fits better in the hand when held against the head.

    While a slight design change would be welcome, concave and curved displays traditionally deal with glare and reflection problems. There is a reason CRT monitors and televisions aren't too popular anymore (although those are convex).

    Cool, it'll be even easier to crack the screen now for all those morons that seem to find a way to crack them currently.

    They can still keep the straight screen, general iphone 4 form factor, and incorporate curved glass. Maybe the glass is for the back, rather than the front. Maybe they're keeping the back glass since a lot of people like that about the 4, and curving it like the 3g and 3gs.

    So you're convinced it will be a 4s not 5? I'm not.
