3G iPhone will be 'radically different' According to a Times Online report, the upcoming 3G Apple iPhone will be "radically different" appearance-wise then the current models available for sale.
As quoted by the article, "Industry sources told Times Online that the device will have a 'radically different' appearance to the current device, which has a 4.5-inch screen and slick, aluminium backing.

"Among the possibilities are flip version, which would enable the screen to be larger, and a sliding model with a regular Qwerty keyboard - as opposed to a touchscreen one."


The article also adds what other outlets have been saying for weeks, that Apple has placed an order with its Asian manufacturers to produce 200,000 of the new model by the end of May and 2 million units by the end of June.

It is still unclear when the new model will launch, but many have speculated June, the one year anniversary of the launch of the current iPhone models.

I don't think that it will become a flip or slide phone. The touch part of the phone is the whole idea, and to take that out doesn't seem reasonable, nor apple like.

yep, apple putting a "slide out" keyboard on it would not be that far fetched, but still very un-apple-like.
