In the tech world today, there are no more secrets. And with respect to smartphones in particular, it’s practically impossible for a company to release a new device without having important specs, features and details leak out ahead of time. Indeed, upcoming products from nearly all handset manufacturers are routinely subjected to an endless stream of conjecture and speculation.
That said, the iPhone in particular seems to engender more interest and intrigue than any other device on the planet. What’s especially interesting is that iPhone rumors were all the rage even years before Steve Jobs unveiled the device to the world back in 2007. In fact, the first iPhone rumor of note appeared all the way back in 2002, just months after the original iPod was released.
