The tech blog Gizmodo has gotten its hands on what it believes is the fourth iteration of the iPhone that was reportedly left in a bar sometime last week. The photos and report appeared yesterday on Gizmodo after Gawker supposedly purchased the device from a smart patron who found it at a bar in Redwood City, California.
If the device really is the iPhone 4G, here’s the quick rundown of what to expect out of the announcement later on this summer: Front-facing camera, improved camera with flash, micro-SIM, better display, second mic for improved voice quality and metallic buttons for volume, power and mute. Also, the battery will be reportedly 16% larger and that the edges of the phone will be more square than previous designs.
This is such a shock that something this big would leak out of Apple, considering it has never happened before. I can only imagine that every lawyer in Silicon Valley is on the phone this week with either Apple or the unlucky employee who lost the phone. Will Apple sue? I don’t think so, as long as the phone is returned to them.
