iPhone 5 to Feature Nexus-Esque Curved Glass?

According to the latest rumor swirling around Taiwan, the iPhone 5 will feature a curved glass screen, akin to the Google Nexus S. Like the Nexus, the display itself would not be curved, but rather just the protective glass above it. Whether Apple will stick with the current iPhone 4 design or switch to something new is still unknown, but if they do plan to retain the current form factor, it is highly unlikely that they would attempt to incorporate curved glass. Blatantly copying a competitor’s design—especially one so distinctive—would be an unusual move for the folks at Cupertino. There is no doubt that Apple creates numerous prototypes of future products, and chances are that this is just one of the many possibilities on the cutting room floor.
