White iPhone 4G prototype appears online


Another next-generation iPhone prototype has appeared online, this time sporting a white faceplate. Engadget, citing Chinese site Apple.pro, reports that the faceplate of the prototype does not appear to have been snapped in all the way, hovering some distance above the white Home button and metal sides, but otherwise appears to be legitimate, appearing the photo next to a black prototype similar to the one obtained and photographed by Gizmodo. Several supposed white next-generation iPhone faceplates had previously appeared online, but this is the first time one has been pictured attached to a full prototype unit, lending credence to the idea that Apple may be planning to announce both white and black models of its next-generation iPhone, with the white model becoming the first iPhone OS device to feature a non-black front.

I love Apple gossip and rumors and much as the next person, but all these photos of the purported new iPhone is like knowing what you’re getting for Christmas before you open your present. I hope Steve Jobs has at least one surprise up his sleeve on June 7.

And for the record, if what has been showing up on the Web is really the new iPhone, I am definitely digging the new look.

Doesn’t anyone see how ridiculous this all is? How can anyone honestly believe any of these “lost prototypes” are real?

My sentiments exactly, Herr Doktor.  So for the past 3 years, Apple has been notoriously tight-lipped about their iPhone releases, and now that one was lost at a bar in Cupertino, new prototypes appear in Vietnam and China? Now we all know how renown Asian countries are with their boot-leg products….(not knocking on Asians; I’m Korean myself)
