Gizmodo's scoop: new iPhone revealed?
Gizmodo paid a source
an undisclosed amount of money $5,000 to gain possession of an Apple phone that was found in a California bar. The blog has covered it a bunch of times already this week.
Here's the supposed "full" story about how the phone was found and ended up in Gizmodo's hands -- but without the interesting details on how much El Giz paid for it. Giz also has an official-looking letter from Apple asking for its property back. I'm convinced that Giz has a real Apple iPhone in its posession.
I'm just not sold on the fact that this is anything but a working model used by engineers. I think the one that ends up in consumers' hands will just look better. Guess we'll find out in a few months if the version Gizmodo had was the real deal.....
