Some people will fall for anything.
Liquidmetal inventor says Apple 'years' away from casings | Electronista (http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/05/03/technology.already.in.use.on.smaller.parts/)
A fair number of Mac/iOS/Apple stories are actually made up by various pundits and day traders to try and manipulate the stock to their favor (at least temporarily). This is a good example of such a story: it links to a number of other sources that are quoted accurately but do NOT come to the same conclusion, meaning the conclusion is the sole invention of the writer, who is generally on some no-name website not known for its accurate Apple news coverage.

Not "Liquid Metal". This is driving me up the wall, because the former is the name of an alloy, and the latter makes me think of mercury (or something else that's liquid at ambient room temperature).
Since everyone seems to think it's "liquid metal" with a space, this immediately brings about the imagery of one opening up an iPhone 5 box to find a puddle of metal and a few shorted out circuit boards, which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
But what's in the box quickly reconfigures into a terminator that resembles a police officer.

If and when such a Liquidmetal iPhone is actually developed and released, I guess if the user drops it onto a good solid surface it will just bounce back up into the users hand. ;)

I want a phone that can turn into a bottle opener like the T-1000 from Terminator 2.
