Apple’s corporate security team could use a good kick in the pants, because it looks like yet another iPhone prototype has been misplaced only to re-appear in Vietnam. Unlike the first next-gen iPhone which wouldn’t boot up or yesterday’s which showed a bizarre “Inferno” homescreen, what makes the iPhone in the photo so special is that it looks to be the first functioning iPhone 4 complete with a functioning copy of iPhone OS 4.0. Unless this is this is a Photoshop job, something which we can’t rule out, we can imagine it’s yet another dark day at 4 Infinite Loop.
This time, it is from the country of Vietnam and they have gone all out. Not only is the unit a little bit different physically from the one Gizmodo had (there are no screws at the botton of the device), but the gentleman who has the phone has torn it apart and revealed the custom Apple A4 processor. There is no working OS loaded (besides a test one called Bonfire) and the unit appears to be a 16GB mode, though it is pre-production obviously. Word on the street is that this unit was purchased for $4,000. Couple additional shots in the gallery and video after the break! More →
