How lucky does one have to be to be handed the newest [unreleased] iPhone while just sitting in a bar? I say pretty damn lucky!! But then again, how lucky do you have to be to lose that iPhone and then find it again?!? This happened to [Gray Powell], a software engineer working with apple on the development of the baseband firmware (what allows your phone to communicate with its network). While out enjoying himself at a local bar, he just so happen to set down his cleverly disguised Next-Gen iPhone on the bar stool next to him… This guy must of been pretty trashed to set his phone down on a bar stool? Maybe the bar in front of you, but the bar stool next to you? Really?
Yes, I know it was a simple mistake, that anyone could of done, but when you are in possession of what is going to be the next biggest thing in the world, that know one knows about! One should be a little more cautious as to where this device is at, at all times. Even if it was disguised as just a normal iPhone, that doesn’t mean someone won’t steal it in a heart beat, especially in a dark bar!
From what I can conclude, the device is back in Apples hands, after a trip through the hands of everyone over at GIZMODO. Know one knows for sure what has happened to [Gray Powell], hopefully Apple has only warned him. But with a leak as big as this, know one can know for sure.
The post from GIZMODO shows the specs as follows:
-Front Facing Camera (possibly for video phone?)
-Certainly Better Resolution Screen
-and an all new exterior casing
Almost seems as though Apple is trying to match the soon-to-be-released HTC Evo? Or maybe it is the other way around?

edit: it seems as though apple has not yet received there device back; there has recently been some proof of this really being Apples device, and not some knock off. check it out on gizmodo.com
