New iPhone discovered on the floor of a bar?

Dionne Warwick sang, "Do you know the way to San Jose?" and the newest version of the iPhone might reply, "I sure do".On a bar floor in San Jose, someone found an iPhone 3G case and inside was a never before seen version of Apple's touchscreen device. Is it the iPhone 4G or iPhone HD? The handset does have a front facing camera and 80GB of storage was discovered before the phone stopped booting up. This could be a prototype or even a production model. No one has really been able to spend quality time with the phone as the lucky guys who found it are asking for cash upfront from those who want to spend some analytic time with it. As far as we know, no one has seen fit to take them up on that offer yet, but hopefully we will soon get to the bottom of this. At least it proves that sometimes you can find something valuable on the floor of a bar, instead of an upchucking drunk. One report said that the before it stopped booting up, the unit was running iPhone OS 4.0 SDK while another report said that the phone was running a new and unknown OS before it failed to work. We would imagine that this is just the beginning of this story with plenty more info to come in the hours and days ahead.

Hm...I haven't seen a fake like that before. That's either a classy fake or maybe the prototype? I mean, why didn't they state the way it worked? I know they said it failed afterwards, but why didn't they describe the way it worked? Was it like the iPhone's OS? Anyway, I think that phone looks awesome. The other fakes look eh.

I will say that it looks like a really early prototype or my number one guess is that it is a developer phone and it is really old so programmers could start testin features on the new model while they keep working towards a new desing. We willl never know for sure until June.

I hope this is how it looks. I really hope it doesn't have the same shell as the iphone 3G and 3GS. If it looks like this, then I think I'm in love (although the back is kind of ugly or maybe that's just the angle)

i too think its fake. I agree about the 80 gb being a weird number since that always doubles when you increas such as 8 to 16 to 32 to 64 to 128 and so on. It is quite a step back from quility from the 3gs as far as how cheap it looks. I heard the rumer and i hope this is true is that it is made out of one piece of mettel kind of like the ipod touch and also i hope its as thin. The one above looks way to thick and boxy to be an apple product of any kind

Boygenuisreport.com. Thats not the iPhone. " it's a cheap Japanese knockoff" of the next generation. If there was a memory increase in the iPhone 4th gen, then it would follow the double memory increase. (8, 16, 32, 64, 128) the previous pictures posted look more realistic. And I've seen a mock or copycat of the iPod nano. It was worth like $30, looked like it, but was cheaper than the headphones genuine iPods come with. This would be a hideous iPhone. They should make some sort of design improvements like video camera on front, larger screen, ....
