Liquid Metal iPhone Coming in 2012?

In 2010, Apple acquired exclusive rights to LiquidMetal’s technologies in order to use its amorphous alloys in future products. The tech ultimately allows for products that are stronger, lighter, and more durable, without interfering with mobile signals. The iPhone rumor mill says that LiquidMetal tech is coming to the iPhone in 2012.

According to ET News:

iPhone5 is likely to take liquid metal, an alloy of zirconium, titanium, nickel, copper and so forth having an outer surface smooth like liquid. The new iPhone is expected to make its debut at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco in June.

How do you feel about the potential of LiquidMetal being used in future iPhones? Would you miss the lovely glass sandwich the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S use? Would you prefer polycarbonate (fancy plastic)? Or are you down with the Terminator-like technology that is LiquidMetal?
