But How!?

The phone was undoubtedly lost by Gray Powell a Apple Developer working on the baseband of the iPhone. Summarized it seems as if he was celebrating his birthday at a local bar. He by the end of the night had left the phone after his swift departure from the party. It was picked up by another intoxicated person there who at first thought it was nothing but a iPhone 3Gs.

The next morning the phone was peeled away from its supposedly snuggley iPhone 3Gs look-a-like case and....STUNNED.

GIZMODO finally obtained the device later, and ofcourse had a closer look at it all. It looked legit and they were convinced it was the soon to be famous iPhone 4G coming out only in June/July.

So Whats New Then?

With the iPhone 4G in the hands of someone other than Apple and their loyal employees the features of the newly found iPhone were revealed by GIZMODO.

FEATURES:

  • Front Facing Camera
  • Camera With Flash
  • Larger Camera Lense
  • It uses a Micro-Sim slot
  • A second Mic next to the headphone jack
  • All buttons except the "Home" button are metallic
PHYSICAL CHANGES:
  • Aluminum border going around the phone completely
  • 3 Grams Heavier
  • Allegedly 16% LARGER battery (Parts Inside Are Smaller to Accommodate)
  • Much higher resolution compared to the iPhone 3Gs

It good that GIZMODO used the time they had with the iPhone well taking down features etc as soon as possible. Why? Apple not to long after GIZMODO acquired it emailed them requesting it back as soon as possible.
"It has come to our attention that GIZMODO is currently in possession of a device that belongs to Apple. This letter constitutes a formal request that you return the device to Apple. Please let me know where to pick up the unit."

Do You Think Apple Will Change The Outer Design?

This for me makes me wonder. Is Apple going to live up to there secretive title and mock up and create a new outer design in order to keep the public guessing or will they surrender and leave the device as it is. Personally the device is not to my liking and the Apple characteristic are just not here at all. I want a change of the design but this could cost Apple a hefty amount of $$$. This also makes me wonder if Apple's release of the phone will be delayed to this unfortunate incident.

Thanks GIZMODO for the information on the iPhone 4G you so graciously handled. Lets hope out friend Gray Powell doesn't lose his job after his incident. :)

Don't forget to leave comments and feedback below, thanks for reading and hope you read another article soon.
