with the double Daily Bento posts on the IPhone 4G "Incident" i suddenly had to wounder "is the actually true?" i'm sure we're all wondering the same thing here. so i decided to look into it a little bit. so wandering over to apples website http://www.apple.com/hotnews/ we learn that.... oh wait we don't learn anything cause there is no mention of it on apples site... humm.... interesting...

ok well not really if apple wanted to keep it a secret the wouldn't be posting anything cause that would be acknowledging that the story is true and admitting such a colossal blunder with there corporate security.

so we then head back to the rumour mill and re-read engadget's posts on the matter and Gizmodo's take on the same, we re watch the videos re-read the specs and of course drool a little bit.

so back to my original pondering "is this true" well all the facts seem to claim that is is. but think about it.... is it really that far out of the realm of possibility for apple to make a "fake" iPhone 4G Pretend to loose it and then reap the hype that such a move would make while they wait for the unveiling of the "real" 4G. then also consider that it wouldn't take that much to get both Engadget and Gizmodo in on it. after all for a company that made $42.91 billion(USD) in 2009 with a direct profit of $8.24 billion(USD) paying a few thousand to a web based company isn't that far or a stretch.

so what do you think? Hoax? publicity stunt? true story?

you tell me

I don't really care. I heard it was cool and that's good for whoever buys one. There is no need for Apple to put a publicity stunt because of the simple reason of it being Apple. Many people will buy Apple regardless.

I saw both of those stories. I dunno what to say really.

I don't really know. I can't even choose an option but it doesn't seem likely that Apple would put on a stunt like that. But hey, who knows??

Looks like a beta model. I believe it... the phone looks bad ass.
