Will The Next iPhone Lose Some Weight?

It's hard for me to reconcile the weight of the iPhone 4 with it's size. It feels good in my hands but coming from the iPod touch, I can't help but feel that I would like the next iPhone to shave off an ouch or two.

It is probably going to be difficult if the next iPhone uses the same chip inside the iPad 2 while maintaining the same battery life.

Then again, it could be the design that is deceptive. The iPhone is angular while the touch is curved.

There are suggestions on the Web that the next iPhone could have a more curved back like th touch or the iPad 2. If so, this could make some sense along with the possibility of a larger screen iPhone.

The bigger screen could make the next iphone bigger but the tapered edge would give it a visual feel that it is lighter.

And given how Apple is able to shave off a couple of ounces off the iPad 2 compared to the iPad, maybe Apple can do the same with the next iPhone despite a bigger screen.
