How Real is that 4G iPhone

Steve Rubel thinks that Apple wanted that prototype to be found:

It's been reported that Apple allegedly has teams in the company working on prototypes that will never see the light of day. It does so, it's been said, to maintain secrecy and to occasionally throw people off the trail. That's what I think is happening here. If that's not enough, consider this - Apple appears to strive to maintain the news flow after a product is announced yet before it's available. After the iPad was revealed, it's been reported that Apple kept the few that were in the wild chained down to special tables. So this isn't a company that lets important unreleased devices anywhere near the wild... unless, that is, they want someone to find it.

With any other company, I'd laugh and move along. With Apple, he could easily be right.

I'm not so sure about that. This is Apple we're talking about, they don't so stuff like that. That's a Microsoft move. Apple is so secretive the give different "code names" to the same product so they can track potential leaks back to the source.

The bar story does sound pretty convincing, but could the phone have been stolen? I think Gizmodo could be in a bit of hot water.

Parting shot: "Ray Ozzie tried leaving his new Microsoft 'Kin' phone at a bar... It's still there."
