New iPhone Emerges...Accidentally

This is a great post from Gizmodo. They came into possession of a disguised, genuine, next-generation iPhone. You can hit the link for their analysis.

Their generally positive review makes me wonder how accidental the iPhone's loss really was. This could be a case of brilliant, free marketing, where the new version's design and hardware could receive a real-world critique, months before its initial release. This would allow time for refinements to be made to design, and the wipe of the phone's firmware meant that bugs in that system would largely be unknowable at present, at least to those outside of Apple.

Either way, I think it only helps Apple.
