Leaked iPhone Photo Suggests Matte Black Revision

The Mac Observer has posted a photo of what they suggest may be an upcoming revision to Apple’s iPhone. The changes described are cosmetic with the iPhone shedding its glossy exterior for a flat matte look.

Apple’s iPhone has been rumored to be staying on its normal release schedule with an upcoming revision in June or July of 2009. Claims of an iPhone dipping down towards a $99 iPhone have continuously made the rounds, and we know that an iteration of Apple’s iPhone is hitting China mid-may. Additionally, rumors of an iPhone nano will not die, even though Apple’s plans should, and most likely will, remain focused around what’s important.

MacRumors has also received photos from the same series. Shown below:

Okay, first off. I don’t necessarily buy this photo. I don’t think it’s fake completely, but I don’t know if I completely believe this. Second, why is the iPhone text so shiny? and why did they have to put their watermark over the actual print? Come on guys! Be classy, put it on the bottom.

I want. NOW – but seriously, I’d pick this up in a heartbeat. the glossy is too shiny for me. although, I don’t know about a purchase like this based solely on cosmetic differences.

@mantis: Who are you kidding? You’d buy an iPhone made of Ice as long as Apple released it :D
