Comical as Samsung and Apple's court feuds over smartphone and tablet design are, there's at least one great thing that's come out of it all: Apple prototypes. Six more early iPhone prototypes have been revealed with designs that bare little resemblance to today's iPhone.
Discovered by Buzzfeed's FWD, the iPhone prototypes provide a look at what could have been, but ultimately wasn't. There's an octagonal iPhone with a beveled rear that kind of reminds us of a Motorola Droid RAZR, one that resembles a Nokia Lumia 900, one without a home button, one that looks like a fatter version of the iPod Touch (first-gen), one with a stretched form factor, and one that looks like a iPod Nano, but wider and thicker.
Of course, none of these designs are expected to make a return for the next iPhone, which is rumored to have a larger 4-inch Retina display, re-arranged audio jack, smaller nano SIM card, better speakers, better camera and more in a slimmer unibody metal chassis.
Which of these prototype designs do you like most?
