iPhone 4G / HD : Gizmodo Found the Stolen Prototype

Advertisements

Mysterious iPhone 4G / HD saga is still on the roll, after Engadget (Check here) today was day of Gizmodo. Gizmodo purchased the missing/stolen iPhone prototype a week ago from an undisclosed buyer. Giz posted a complete postmortem gallery and video to prove their claim. First impression of iPhone are very bad in look wise, it’s important to mention here, It’s a prototype piece and we believe that Apple is still working on final design.

Gizmodo found the following hardware features:

  • Front camera.
  • Better camera (the lens is much larger diameter).
  • Flash (physical, of course).
  • Micro-SIM as iPad.
  • Display Enhancements. It seems that from 960 × 460 reported some time ago from other noises.
  • There seems to be a secondary microphone, perhaps to mitigate noise at the side of the headphones.
  • Separate buttons for volume.
  • Metal buttons for power, mute and volume.

Gizmodo, reports that prototype was running on OS 4.0 before it was locked remotely, with all the functions system. Obviously, recovery is impossible, because every firmware is specific to each model. Once again i hope that the final design is different from this, although the hardware seems very attractive.

    seriously dude, if their story of finding it in a cafe is true.. .it HAS to be a plant. Apple is not going to just “Forget” one of their prototypes in a cafe! i mean really, do you think they are even aloud to take them away from work; let along hang out at a cafe w/ one?

    Which person loses a device like this? I think it’s fairly impossible. So in my opinion, it’s Apple’s publicity machine, warming the crowd for the release of the iPhone 4G, who “lost” this phone. They let it live just long enough for the finder to confirm it’s indeed running iPhoneOS4.0 and then remotely erased it, thus making it impossible to determine the video resolution, camera’s MP and thelike. That are facts they’re keeping in clouds until it’s time for a new leak, just like the memory size.

    Another point, if this is a real loss, Apple could go to the police and claim the device as lost or even stolen. But that definitely would confirm the genuinity of this iPhone and so destroy the carefully set-up campaign of leaks.

    So all in all, in my opinion this has all been set up by Apple.

    This was a good ‘find’ by them, however they got it. Can’t really believe too much when you hear it was found in a cafe haha, but I do believe that this phone is a prototype and the final version will look a lot different than this. I expect all the hardware to be there though that is in this. Can’t wait for the actual final release to be unveiled!

    Just to echo what Keizaburo said…Seems the folks at Gizmodo are going
    to have a legal issue with Apple. They knew it was a missing unit and
    paid the person who “found it” $5K to get their mits on it. Sounds like
    buying and receiving stolen property to me which is a crime. Not that I don’t like insider info on new tech(especially with iPhone, but this is taking it a bit too far.

    I like the big, square slab design. I’ll take it as-is.

    So Gizmodo either stole this, bought stolen goods and THEN DESTROYED stolen goods knowing well it was lost or stolen from Apple by disassembling it. They should be HUGELY LIABLE. And this from someone who thinks Apple is usually full of legal crap.
