A number of different rumors have Apple taking special measures to ensure that the next iPhone is thinner than the current generation. Yes, we know the new iPad is thicker than the iPad 2, but a thicker tablet is different than a thicker phone. One goes in your bag, one goes in your pocket. There have been reports of Apple manufacturing the phone out of Liquidmetal instead of glass, and there being a unibody design. We don't really care how it's done, we just hope the next iPhone is thinner and lighter. It doesn't have to be as thin as the iPod Touch, but—at least make it comparable to the Galaxy S III.
