photoshop...
I don't think so. Showing fake iPhone and telling it MAY be next iPhone and faking letter and telling it IS official letter from Apple is different things.

Gawker Media which own Gizmodo (online gadget and technology blog who got hands on this iPhone) isn't little silly company. It is considered as one of the most successful blog orientated companies.
And I bet they do know about all the legal stuff which will come to them if they will fake official Apple letter and claim as real.

But this dosen't mean that everything is crystal clear here. In some way I tend to agree with all those conspiracy theories, that it was clear marketing move by:
a) Apple, Gray Powell (guy who lost it),
b) Apple, Gray Powell (guy who lost it), Guy who found it and been ordered to sell it some large tech blog...
c) Apple, Gray Powell (guy who lost it), and Gawker Media/Gizmodo.

Reason for including "Gzimodo" in option C is that in reality with this news they are doing really good profit.
They have written about 4-5 articles in this subject and last time I checked first article itself had 5,5 million views which is A LOT!

If it was there new phone, why should they give it out to an employee. shouldnt it be at Apple's development center?
Ok, now Let's assume it wasn't PR and really happened.
Why did Apple employee had prototype iPhone with him?

Field testing....

+1 for marketing ploys.
Yes, it is...
We all have heard about Apple's own Gestapo whose job is just hunt down leaks.

It is really strange the way the phone has been lost.

So as I already have mentioned, in a way I do agree with PR strategy.
But at the same time it spoils all the surprise effect for Apple, therefore it may lead to lose of money.

Who knows... Everything is possible



BTW. Malware developers already got hold of the story:

I don't think he is fired, nor do I think he will be fired.

As Gizmodo has already revealed who he is, so now he has lots of media eyes turned to him. That's why I think it will be stupid thing to do for Apple.

but from now on, he will probably have a lot of restrictions on his current job.

P.S. I really liked how you put it: "iDungeon"

Apple Didn't Leak the iPhone—and Why That Matters

A controlled leak? The lost iPhone planted by Apple? You have no idea how Apple PR works—and how, like it or not, Gizmodo finally beat them at their own game.

The only way the iPhone 4 was a controlled leak is if Apple has completely upended its PR strategy, which is the envy of the entire business world. The only way it could even work, presuming it were true, would be the destruction of a decade of meticulously laid plans. It would be cashing in all the marketing chips for no clear gain; Does anyone really think the iPhone 4 wouldn't have been a huge story on its own in June?

Gizmodo said they dismantled the prototype to unveil its inner workings. Anyone ever wonder why they never released their findings, i.e. specifics?
