Leaked Images of an Accidentally Lost iPhone 4G Prototype? [Update x6]

Posted April 17, 2010 at 8:49pm by iClarified · 29500 views
Images have just leaked of what might be an iPhone 4G prototype found on the floor of a San Jose bar inside an iPhone 3G case.

Engadget received the photos from the new owner who is looking to sell the device.

Right now we don't have a ton of info on the device in question, but we can tell you that it apparently has a front facing camera (!), 80GB of storage (weird, right?), and isn't booting at this point (though it was previously, and running an OS that was decidedly new). It's not clear if this is definitely a production model, or just a prototype that found its way into the world, but it's certainly a compelling design, no matter how you look at it.

We'll post more details as they become available!

*Update: It seems this device has been spotted before. According to @TUDream a chinese tweeter uploaded similar photos some time ago.

*Update x2: Appleferas is saying the images are a Japanese clone.

*Update x3: Engadget is now declaring these images the real deal and provides some evidence to back this up.

*Update x4: Appleferas now says their source was faking about it being fake.

*Update x5: John Gruber has heard that Apple really wants this device back!

*Update x6: Gizmodo has got the device in hand and declares it the real deal!

Tuff Luck apple !! go find out how it left your vault !!!! if apple offered me free upgrades for next 2 models I would consider giving it back to them if not tuff luck apple execs..find your mole or call jack bauer to be your private security !!!

The "Rumour" understanding is getting out of hand.... iClarified and all the other sites we love should at least have some threshold for these kinds of bs.
