The iPhone 5 Will Be Really Thick and Fat

by | 5th, August 2011

NO, no it won’t be. I’ll give every reader of this blog $100  if the iPhone 5 is thicker than the iPhone 4. The iPhone, rather like Steve Jobs, always gets thinner at each new launch.

However since no other information about the new wonder phone has escaped from the information fortress that is Apple’s Cupertino HQ – tech blogs everywhere have run wild with the scoop on a French blog that – yes – the iPhone 5 will be thinner than the iPhone 4.

Approximately a million tech blog posts have reported how the new version will shave micrometers off the already slender 9.3 mm iPhone 4. However, as Gizmodo points out,  it’s likely the “leaked” photo (below) was just a piece of nifty photoshop work.

Due to be unveiled in either September or October this year the iPhone 5 will doubtless be a beautiful piece of engineering that millions of people will buy, pouring money into Apple’s over-flowing coffers. Currently Apple has more cash reserves than the US government. In the meantime look out for exciting stories about how the iPhone 5 might weigh slightly less than the iPhone 4 and have a slightly better camera.
