Is Chinese Fourth-Generation iPhone 'Midboard' Claim a Hoax?
Images have surfaced of what a Chinese parts distributor claims is a fourth-generation iPhone midboard. If you're thinking "Why would Apple do business with anyone who openly leaks such sensitive info?" you're not alone. As a result, many are reluctant to believe what they are seeing.
Gizmodo reports that Chinese parts supplier China Ontrade is offering an "Apple iPhone 4 Generation Midboard", which the company claims it received from Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn on November 1st. The site also claims that it will be posting pictures of the back cover of the next-generation iPhone in the near future.
Assuming the pics are legit, we'll know more in the very near future about about the next generation iPhone.
The Chinese parts maker has promised a slate of new photos of the iPhone 4G and its "amazingly beautiful back cover."
The same company last week posted what it claims to be a SIM card tray from the fourth-generation iPhone, although the site also referred to the device as an "iTablet", suggesting that the tray could be from Apple's much-rumored tablet project rather than the iPhone.
Consequently, it remains to be seen whether this latest part is in fact from a next-generation iPhone, which would be a significant surprise this early before an expected launch next summer, or if it is from some other device.

I was a test engineer for a major fortune 500 company (WAS, THANKS ECONOMY, OUTSOURCING)!
I went to China 2 years ago to assist with the bone pile of broken boards, etc...
My point, their products were the exact motherboards of many big name entities...Cisco, Lucent, etc..they simply reverse engineered them and stuck their name on them...I would take anything coming out of China with a huge bag of salt!

Honestly, I love my original iPhone more than the other 2 in my avatar.

Im not going to put any eggs in this basket. On the other hand it is great publicity for apple. The fact that a 4G iphone MIGHT be in the works and we are getting "spy" shots of components is only hype for the fruity overlord...This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

I really doubt that any of that is true. I think they're just trying to get attention. Apple wouldn't let them show pictures along with a comment that they'll show the back cover soon without taking some action, even if they are "spy photos". I guess there's a small chance that all of this is to build up hype for the phone but I really doubt it.

Does it really matter? Even if it really is part of the 4th gen iPhone, it tells us nothing about it.
LOOK EVERYONE! I found a wire that goes in the 4th gen iPhone. Everyone get excited!Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

And, then there is the chinese knock-off, the myphone. Of which a midget version is already on the market.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
