  • Mysterious Boxes in Australia. The New iPhone?
    The friendly folks over at MacTalk have recieved a leaked photo of a mysterious box from one of their sources. Rumor has it that these boxes are winding up at resellers all over Australia. What could possibly be in the box? Of course the obvious assumption is the second generation iPhone.

    SUBJECT TO TERMS OF NDA
    DO NOT OPEN UNTIL TUESDAY JUNE 10TH, 2008
    June 10th in Australia = June 9th here in the U.S. which is when we are expecting Steve Jobs to announce the 3g iPhone and open up the AppStore at WWDC.

      just 5 minutes with that box is all I need. At least give us the weight of the box for us to determine what lies within

      Edit: Nah, I looked at the picture again, I don't buy it.

      Yay! Go Aussies!

      I can't wait to walk into the Apple shop at home and buy the new iPhone instead of sh*tting my self for 2 weeks straight after spending $700 off eBay like I did for my old one.

      so if theyre supposedly shipping 3G phones right now, I guess its safe to assume that they have a gold 2.0 firmware already done, correct?

      Fake. They could have at least put the label on the top of the box and not the bottom. They would have been taken a little more seriously. Plus it looks like some crappy piece of paper and not even a quality sticker (which is what Apple would use on a box).

      i know at walmart, when we get something new, the box will say "do not sell before...", but for Wii's the box says "tab" which means it is being held for the next walmart ad, but any box that comes in to walmart, we open and look at it. i remember when we got GTA 4 in, my Dept. manager just handed me a copy of it, lol.

      Man, that would be too tempting for me. I couldn't do it. Chances are I would keep it all to myself though, so there would be no issue. :-)

      i'd open it and reseal it. if the iphone was in there it'd be completely worth the risk..

      im sure someone out there opened it.

      I reckon the box is real. I work for Optus in Australia and my national manager already has one of the 3G iPhones. But he won't show it to anyone! He has confirmed they will be sold here in July though
