What if the iPhone 5 was shaped like the Magic Mouse?

It’s 2012 and that means two things: iPad 3 and iPhone 5. We’ve already figured out the iPad 3 will be announced sometime early next month and it might have had a weight gain. However, we’re still unsure about the iPhone 5’s release date or design. Will it return to its traditional WWDC launch in June/July? Or is September/October the new renewal clock? One thing’s for sure. There’s another iPhone coming. But that’s all we can confirm. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate, right? CiccareseDesign, an Italian conceptual studio, has done just that in their recent mockups of a Magic Mouse inspired iPhone 5.

Now I must say, even though the size isn’t practical for fitting all of the iPhone’s insides, the concept’s pretty sexy. The only problem would be putting it down on a table because it will rock like a cradle. However, I do see where they’re coming from. A mouse is in your hand for a good part of the day – so is a smartphone. What do you think? Sexy? Ugly? In between? Or better yet, would you rock this thing?
