Possible iPhone 5 Design Spoiler: Case Mate Launches Product Page for iPhone 5 Cases
Case Mate, the makers of various smartphone cases and accessories, is raising eyebrows Thursday evening in the wake of launching a series of product pages that list - get ready - iPhone 5 cases.
If the cases accurately represent the design of the device which will be housed within them, then, ladies and gentlemen, it appears that the 5th generation iPhone is going to be dramatically different (primarily in light of the much wider screen) from its predecessors in terms of the device's yet-to-be revealed design.
Of course, it still remains to be seen if we're dealing with fantasy or reality here, as Case Mate may simply be projecting the concept of an iPhone 5 case based on information that may not ultimately manifest in the actual iPhone 5 design. "We've spoken to iPhone accessory makers in the past who told us it's very rare for Apple to give this kind of early access to a new device's design," Business Insider reports.
On the other hand, there's a strong indication that the images do, indeed, spill the beans on the real iPhone 5 design. The evidence? The pictures have already been yanked from the company's website. Some believe this would suggest that Apple asked for the images to be removed. Is that pure speculation? Yes. But it's certainly not without a logical underlying assumption, particularly as we are no more than a few weeks away for the iPhone 5's grand unveiling.

One day it's the same form factor... not today, it's radically different. I'll believe it when they freaking announce the thing. But i hope it does have a larger screen, for what it's worth.

I thought this was interesting when reading the info about the new phone(s) on the casemate site stated above. "From our inside resources, it appears that Apple will be indeed launching both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S in early October. The speculation indicates that the iPhone 4S will feature the same form factor as the iPhone 4 but will be upgraded with the latest technology, including the A5 dual-core processor and 8 mega-pixel camera."

Looks almost as if the just slightly modified the iPod touch 4th Gen design. Hopefully they won't give it the chrome back...that would be a mess...

So, it looks like someone at CaseMate just got fired. I think the back of the 5 is gonna be the same as the iPad 2.

"Case-Mate's iPhone 5 case posting was corroborated by sources from within Apple on Thursday. Stating that the launch was just "weeks away," staffers gave descriptions of the new iPhone's look that reportedly lined up with the larger, tapered, aluminum look. An engineer told the NYT that the design would be "fairly different" than the iPhone 4, inside and out....
Apple Employees: “Fairly Different” iPhone 5 is “Just Weeks Away”

The difference this time around is that two Apple employees in Cupertino have told The New York Times that a “fairly different” iPhone 5 is “just weeks away” from launch. Now we’re getting somewhere…
“We’re*just weeks away*from the announcement of the new Apple iPhone 5, according to an Apple employee who asked not to be named because he was not allowed to speak publicly for the company.”

Ummmm... Look at the volume buttons. Looks like an iPod Touch to me.
