The District Attorney of San Mateo County is moving forward in the case of the iPhone 4 prototype we posted about last year. Fortunately, nobody from our team is being charged.
A prototype iPhone 4 similar to, ahem, a model that turned up last year has appeared on eBay, with the seller Jtmaxo claiming to be a licensed cellphone repairman who was sold the iPhone for parts.
Floating around the 'nets today is this video from the site Tinhte, who claim that the White iPhone 4 pictured above is a prototype running an early test version of iOS 4, featuring different/rejected/unused systems for multitasking and folders.
It's such an obvious question: Why couldn't Apple track this phone down? As it turns out, they may have had two chances to get it back—and blown them both.
Well, how can I explain this? I got some interesting calls today. It was Apple. And they wanted their phone back.
You are looking at Apple's next iPhone. It was found lost in a bar in Redwood City, camouflaged to look like an iPhone 3GS. We got it. We disassembled it. It's the real thing, and here are all the details. Update: click here to see the iPhone 4 definitive guide, with all the features officially announced by Apple.
