A picture of Best Buy’s inventory database just surfaced and it has us seriously scratching our heads. Three new devices, known only as Charlie 1, Charlie 2 and Charlie 3 are listed with nothing but a description that reads “Project Charlie”. While it would be very easy (and fun) to get ahead of ourselves and speculate that something ultra-secret is coming to AT&T and soon, the tipster that sent in the pics seems to think the Charlie’s are nothing more than a way to get the new iPhone into the system without tipping people off. It’s either that or Best Buy has given up on fighting inventory system leaks and is just having a bit of fun at the expense of us bloggers. But they wouldn’t, would they?
