i saw the new ipod touch and saw the aluminum back and thought…. why didnt they do that with the iphone 3g? it looks so clean.. and is the same size as the iphone basically… just thinnner

one of the issues that has cropped up has been the cracking and hairline fracturing of the plastic case on the new shiny iphone 3g and one of the reasons why i stayed away

heck.. even the nano has always been all aluminum and now has glass display…and the old iphone had an aluminum back as well…

does apple think that the iphone 3g is worth less?  maybe that is where the saving came from on top of the subsidy that ATT is providing… quality seems to have taken a back seat to trying to crank out as many of these puppies as possible

i am waiting for iphone 3g gen2 at least… so they can figure out the 3g network issues they are having, the dropped calls issues, the cracking cases and maybe a better camera and larger hard drive…
