    Default iPhone 4 in the Wild
    [ame=http://vimeo.com/12671233]Exklusive video taken with iPhone 4 on Vimeo[/ame]


    As people across the globe wait for their iPhone 4 to arrive June 24, or in August - or... um... never - a user in the Czech Republic has what appears to be the first test of a production iPhone in the real world. The post at Jablíčkář.cz, highlighted in AppleInsider and elsewhere, includes photos and video taken with the new phone's camera, as well as a report of faster GPS lock and much improved battery life.

    The user, which Google Translate hilariously calls "happy Swenak," got his hands on an iPhone 4 through unknown means. We'd already gotten some reviews from hands-on testers at the WWDC, and the notorious "lost-and-found" iPhone as well as the Vietnam prototype, but this seems like the first time an actual user has had a production iPhone in his hands. and spent about an hour with it, taking pictures, playing games, watching videos and browsing the Web. The charge level dropped only 10% in that hour, which is an impressive confirmation of Apple's claims about the new iPhone 4 battery life. Additionally, Swenak reported that "GPS was surprisingly quick, which is caught almost immediately," presumably meaning that the new Phone's assisted GPS chip can lock faster than current phones, which often take a while to give an accurate position.

    Swenak was able to take a number of photos with the phone, which are the first we've seen other than Apple's samples, which show the camera's imaging quality in the most advantageous conditions. Unfortunately, these images are also taken in full sunshine, so we'll still have to wait to see how the camera does in low light.

    Although Swenak claims to be "anti Mac OS and IOS," apparently the "new iPhone really surprised him and he likes it." So, WIN. Maybe those of us who pre-ordered one will actually get it soon, so we can be happy too...

    Meanwhile, my 3G with a broken SIM tray sits in my drawer. Gotta buy a new one eventually, or get a 4.

    So the question is how does somebody go about activating an iPhone that is not even released by apple yet? I'm a little skeptical on this one.

    The same way people install OS 4 before its officially released. Its (the phones) public release may be the 24th, but there are a limited number of people that have them. It would take more time and effort to stop them from being able to activate it, then to just let the ones that get out early be able to be used.

    I don't understand how this person was able to use the phone.. if you look at the pictures you can see that the phone has full signal but no carrier name,... very strange.. .

    Hey, I thought we were not supposed to make this a bidding place (105)
    In all seriousness, we need to remember that even in a perfect comunist society, SOME people are a little more equal than others. The apple shop owner who owes somebody a huge one, the pi$$ed off stocker who happened to see where the iphones were, the apple employee who now has bragging rights...
    I am sad that I wasn't that guy, but i am looking forward to getting my mitts on one!

    hmmm, another leaked iphone... i wonder how long til we see another foxconn "suicide"

    Has anyone else found it interesting that the year with an unbelievably high number of leaked/stolen/whatever iphone parts and test phones just so happens to coincide with a drastic surge in foxconn "suicides"?

    "Swenak reported that "GPS was surprisingly quick, which is caught almost immediately," presumably meaning that the new Phone's assisted GPS chip can lock faster than current phones"

    either that or the new antenna's are doing a great job ... how big were the ones in the previous iphones does anyone know ?
