New iPhone 4G: Glass vs. Unibody Aluminum Enclosures

By Alan Ng - Apr 19, 2010

We have an interesting article for you to read now, which relates to all the new details and images of the upcoming iPhone 4G device which surfaced over the weekend.

John Gruber from Daring Fireball has stated reasons in which he believes that the prototype device we saw, is in fact a real device which slipped away from Apple labs, specifically reminding us about a patent that Apple filed in 2006 about high-durability ceramic enclosures.

If you have seen the photos in question, you’ll know that it features a new glass casing, which is similar to the casing featured on the iPad and also new models of Macbook Pro laptops.

It seems as if Apple are exploring the possibility of using their ceramic enclosure casing for the new iPhone 4G, which will allow the device to be much more durable, and not to mention more scratch resistant.

Let us know your thoughts on this, more over at Daring Fireball.
