IPhone 5 Display And/Or Back To Be Curved?

The latest rumor from that ever spinning rumor mill, DigiTimes, is that Apple is investing in curved glass. According to “industry sources” Cupertino has ordered between 200-300 glass-cutting machines to be utilized by glass makers over in China, where the devices are built.

This throws up two possibilities. Firstly, we could see a curved glass display, similar to that on the Nexus S. (We’re not sure how popular that would be.) Or we could see a return to the traditional, curved back, that was on previous generations of the iPhone.

I, for one, would be glad of the change. I still miss my 3GS’ ergonomic feel, and would jump for joy if Jobs&Co managed to keep the materials currently used in the iPhone 4, but still have a rounded back.

What do you guys want? Would you like the curved display, as seen on the Nexus S? Would you prefer a curved, glass back? Or both?
