Gizmodo Gets Ahold of Prototype iPhone 4G, Internet Explodes

iPhone, Mobile

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.
