It IS like that! OMG!
No, I just think it will be interesting to see where this thing fits in. Apple spends a great deal of time on the form factor for their toys (At this point, it seems they spend more time on the shell than they do on the guts) and obviously considerations like my seemingly trivial question go into the final design.... Even the basic size of the thing was no doubt the subject of endless debates.
I'm just gonna sit back and see how this all shakes out, because it never pays to be an early adopter (Unless you have to be, because you're a developer or something). I'll let the rest of the technophiles take the plunge on this one, and then watch the inevitable ruckus when Apple drops the price to $299 and doubles the capacity at the same time a year from now.
Maybe I'll get an iPhone then.
