  • iPhone 4G Prototype - Lost And Found

    Someone might be getting fired tomorrow. It turns out that someone had left behind an, what looks to be, an iPhone 4G, or at least some type of prototype. Or it could just be someone playing a joke. We've seen a ton of fake iPhones from China, and this might be the same.

    Engadget was the first to report this news. Apparently the phone was found on the floor of a San Jose bar inside of an iPhone 3G case. Although it is exciting, a number of users have pointed out that this looks almost like a Twitpic posted by TUDream on February 20th.

    The device that was found is reported to have a front facing camera, and 80GB of memory.

    I personally don't buy one bit of it. I can't imagine Apple ever releasing something so hideous. The housing is horrendous. But then again, if its a prototype, they might not put that much effort into the housing for this one to preserve some secrecy to what it will really look like.

    None the less, here are some more photos from Engadget.

      We won't really get a real estimate of how the g4 iPhone will look until the secondary manufacters start leaking specs of the cases that they will be making for it.

      Now i do agree its ugly, and i am sure it is a fake. Using the word hideous makes you sound like some high class snot nose busters. Just say the friggin thing is ugly.

      Hideous? 'ta loco, hideous - muy chingon!

      Then go somewhere else to get your news....is it really that hard?

      It's a confirmed fake "iPhone", not a confirmed knockoff of the iPhone 4G. Some of you people are so stupid and gullible.

      If you've followed this story, you'll see it actually is a Japanese knock-off, not chinese. But good eye none the less.

      I personally enjoy the look of the phone in question (real or not). Let your readers decide if the device is "horrendous" or "hideous".

      Now, if you're not representing yourself or this blog as a source of information and this is strictly an opinion article (like Fox News) then I apologize.
      Lol, well put. However, we do try to include some personal opinions in our articles. I just assume the readers will make their own decision on the aesthetics, rather than just agree with me

      but I gotta say, the poke at Fox news was awesome!
