No Teardrop Design For the iPhone 5 in 2012?

iLounge is promising three new Apple products in 2012. According to their "most reliable source," the iPhone, iPad and MacBook Pro will all be receiving redesigns next year. The next generation iPhone will not feature the rumored teardrop-design we were promised in 2011. Instead it will feature a 4-inch display, aluminum back and be 8mm longer than the current models. The new iPhone will be available sometime next summer.

Another "industry source," who claims to have handled an iPhone 5 prototype, confirmed it featured an aluminum back and larger screen. The scrapped iPhone 5 was also supposed to be equipped with a 10-megapixel camera and be available in various colors.

The next generation iPad is reportedly going to be thicker to accommodate its new "twin light bar system" needed for its rumored 2048 x 1536 retina display. The iPad 3 will be announced in January followed by a March launch according to the iLounge source.
