Apple iPhone 5 Form Factor, Any Ideas?
So the rumour floating the net waves is that the smartphone space might just see the rumoured iPhone 5 sometime in 2011 along of course with the Verizon iPhone; however the word doing the rounds at the moment is that the iPhone 5 would surface with a new form factor rather than follow that of the iPhone 4.
According to an article over on Product-reviews by Alan Ng, who quotes a recent article by the Wall Street Journal…”Separately, Apple is also developing a new iPhone model, said people briefed on the phone. One person familiar said the fifth-generation iPhone would be a different form factor than those that are currently available.”
So basically if said article is on the money, Apple is looking at redesigning the form factor for the fifth generation iPhone. Perhaps due to all the commotion seen over the iPhone 4 and its external antenna issues, so maybe the iPhone 5 will return the antenna internally.
However, what we’d really like to know is what our readership can come up with in the way of a new form factor design for the iPhone 5, perhaps you have a particular form factor you’d love to see Apple deliver, a flip-out or slide out QWERTY keyboard perhaps, or maybe a dual screen iPhone 5?
