  • Another 4th-Gen iPhone Turns Up
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AAnUHePbe4]YouTube - Tinhte.com - Trên tay phiên b?n th? nghi?m iPhone 4G[/ame]


    A second next-generation iPhone has surfaced, this time in Vietnam of all places. The Vietnamese website [ame="http://taoviet.vn/showthread.php?t=16471"]taoviet.vn[/ame] (currently staggering under the load of hits from all over the world) posted pictures and video of an iPhone that matches the prototype Gizmodo had last month, but with better finish and labeling, indicating this may be an early production model.

    Unlike the "lost and found" prototype that Gizmodo highlighted, this phone was in working condition when it was obtained, though running some sort of firmware test suite called "Inferno" rather than the iPhone OS. There are other visible differences between this phone and the Gizmodo prototype, including a micro-SIM slot like the iPad's on the side of the case and the absence of the screws that marred the bottom, and a production quality label showing "16GB" on the case back where Gizmodo's prototype just said "XXGB." If the phone uses the same flash that went into the iPad, this could mean that there will be 16, 32 and 64GB models on the next-generation device. There's also an "N90" sticker on the processor - which is the designator Apple uses internally for the A4 - and the marking APL0398 on the chip, same as on the iPad's A4.

    Circumstances of how it came into the hands of the Taoviet folks were not made clear. However, the tipster who notified MacRumors said that a Vietnamese businessman "bought it in the US, along with an iPad." Other sources indicate that the phone cost them $4,000 US, less than the $5,000 Gizmodo paid for its bricked prototype. Apparently Apple's vaunted security is getting so bad that it's driving prices down...

      Apple's security is about as watertight as a MacBook Air

      I hope this is what it looks like! Aluminum and black just like by iPad and MacBook Pro and iMac. My iPhone 3GS looks VERY out of place in this Apple family. The new iPhone has crisp clean lines and no more chrome bezel thank God!

      i dont know if u guys like this iPhone 4G or not but for me, i hate that volume buttons theyre so weird. they could have made the screen bigger as well i love HTC HD2 its screen is awesome.

      and another thing is that the new iphone 4G looks like Nokias design

      Make the screen bigger?... You do know then Devs would have to code for THREE different sizess and you'd have 3 different sections in the App store. Never going to happen... just not practical. They will boot the resolution but keep the overall size the same... just makes sense.

      Yea I don't need a bigger phone in my pocket. Screen size is good.

      I really hope Apple doesn't disappoint us this time like they did in January. I hope they at least match the Nexus One's specs

      Maybe it's Apple's new way to present the new 4G iPhone
      And make people wish to place their hands on it.
      But who knows maybe I'm wrong x.x
