Liquidmetal iPhone 5 Concept

With the WWDC just around the corner, the rumor mill is starting its frenzy of wild guesses on what the iPhone 5 might have in store for us. One such rumor suggests that Apple will use Liquidmetal alloys in the upcoming iPhone, making it thinner, lighter and more resistant to impact damage.
