You are looking at Apple's next iPhone. It was found lost in a bar in Redwood City, camouflaged to look like an iPhone 3GS. We got it. We disassembled it. It's the real thing, and here are all the details.
The Gourmet Haus Staudt. A nice place to enjoy good German ales. And if you are an Apple Software Engineer named Gray Powell, it's also a nice place to make the honest mistake of losing the next-generation iPhone.
The 27-year-old Powell—a North Carolina State University 2006 graduate and talented amateur photographer—is an Apple Software Engineer working on the iPhone Baseband Software, the little program that enables the iPhone to make calls. A dream job for a talented engineer like Powell, an Apple fan who always wanted to meet Steve Jobs.
Proof: A Letter: Apple Wants Its Secret iPhone Back
Well, how can I explain this? I got some interesting calls today. It was Apple. And they wanted their phone back.
This phone was lost, and then found. But from Apple's perspective, it could have been considered stolen. I told them, all they have to do to get it back is to claim it—on record. This formal request from Apple's legal department is that claim. It proves—if there was any doubt in your mind—that this thing is real.
Yeah i know that, but still dont belive everthing you see on the web.
Papers are so easy to fix in e.tc. photoshop, and how do we really know how a letter from Apple looks like? =)
And i did read it, well if i did own Apple i would type some more stuff on the paper. Not only a papers who says please send it back and tell me where to pic it up.

Yeah ppl do mistakes, but an "secret phone" from Apple just sounds hummm... unlikely.
If it was there new phone, why should they give it out to an employee. shouldnt it be at Apple's development center?
