3G Iphones have been found in CA
It seems Forbes have found them at the warehouse and took some pics of the imacs as well.
Here are some iMacs
Forbes Brian Caulfield, who's been tracking the mystery phones' progress from China to the U.S., thinks he knows: They're in a Quanta Computer warehouse in Fremont, Calif., an industrial town near both Apple's Cupertino HQ and the Oakland port. Note to blogosphere: Brian has sussed this out by both making phone calls and leaving the office. Check out his awesome shoe leather reporting:
It seems that whatever Quanta is moving lately is keeping their facility packed. Outside, the roughly 168,000-square-foot facility boxes were piled in one parking lot in the early summer sunshine. Distinctive white boxes labeled "iMac" and bearing the Apple logo were stacked 10 deep alongside 20 pallets of identical unmarked brown boxes roughly stacked 10 deep and four abreast.
The real action, however, took place behind the building--and could only be seen from the parking lot of an adjacent company on the other side of a shallow creek. Workers hustled to maneuver pallets of the brown boxes around trucks from FedEx and Advanced Logistics. The area was crowded with more than a dozen empty trailers from "Xtra Lease" and others.
All around the trucks, workers wheeled around pallets of the plain brown boxes, some using forklifts, others with hydraulic dollies. A security guard working for the company across the creek from Quanta's facility approached this reporter before a thorough survey could be made.
Inside Quanta's building, workers weren't answering many questions. If you ask to see the new iPhone an employee calls the shipping supervisor. "Chris is really, really busy right now--he can't talk to you," the receptionist answered.
The plain brown boxes could contain almost anything, of course: Apple's mysterious new tablet computers, new Apple notebooks, even a product for one of Quanta's other customers. Or the boxes could be bursting with dozens of the stylish cartons Apple wraps around its iPhones.
Pictures taken of the boxes from a public sidewalk with a digital camera weren't good enough to pick up shipping labels or any other telling details.
While Chris was busy we did manage to catch one employee at the end of his smoke break. "Are you with a magazine or something?" he asked as he noticed a reporter, notebook in hand, coming his way.
Are the new iPhones inside? "No, no," he said, before flashing a grin and heading back into the building. "If so, I'm not at liberty to discuss it."

The mania is building, as Apple fans prepare for big news on Monday. Steve Jobs is expected to unveil a new 3G iPhone at the company’s Developers Conference in San Francisco. We spoke to gadget lovers on the streets of Manhattan and did a comparison of what the iPhone is likely to offer versus its top competitors.
One of the burning questions for Monday: will the new 3G phone really cost as little as $200?
