Apple has a leak. Or maybe the Vietnamese iPhone 4G thing is just a prank. Either way, gossip about the Apple iPhone 4G is the hottest thing going.
Is there such a thing as an Apple iPhone 4G? Maybe. Probably. Who knows? But if the tech blogosphere had an official sport, it would be Apple Rumor Volleyball, and nothing has riled up the technorati more than the speculation surrounding the Apple iPhone 4G, which might – or might not – be unveiled at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
Here's the latest: A Vietnamese blog called Taoviet has apparently scooped up an Apple iPhone 4G. No word on how the team got their hands on the iPhone 4G, but there are a whole lot of photos, and a video (see below), which show an iPhone remarkably similar in shape and design to the one unveiled by Gizmodo earlier this year. For our part, we remain cautiously hopeful.
Other bloggers, however, are certain Taoviet's iPhone 4G is for real. "It's clearly pre-production judging by the XXX placeholders on the backside stamp and likely lacks a bootable OS, just a 'Bonfire' test routine," writes Wired's Thomas Ricker. "Nevertheless, it looks authentic enough that we expect Apple's henchmen to be busting down the guy's door before he pries it open to reveal Apple's chipset of choice."
