A recent Gizmodo article starts like this:
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.
According to the article, the iPhone was left behind by Apple Software Engineer Gray Powell, after a night out at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a beer garden in Redwood City, California. Found by a nearby patron, the gadget eventually made its way to Gizmodo, who picked it apart and declared it officially as the next generation iPhone.
In their latest post, Gizmodo posted a letter from Apple asking for the phone back, so the question remains... big blunder or bigger hoax?
