Apple fanboys attack! We’re pretty hesitant to believe this one for ourselves, although it would make sense. There’s this image floating around that claims to be the back of the new 3G iPhone. Sportin’ a glossy black finish, it seems as if the entire back panel is now plastic instead of metal. This would bode well for the influx of antennas Apple is rumored to have added. 850MHz/1900MHz/2100MHz WCDMA, 802.11n, Bluetooth, etc. Sound off in the comments about what you think of the photo…real? Plausible? Absolutely without a doubt fake? Have at it!

Also check out the 8GB mark on the case, and also how the text is aligned differently than the existing iPhones.
