Default Can We Have Our iPhone Back?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.9to5mac.com/apple_iphone_recall?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+9To5Mac-MacAllDay+(9+to+5+Mac+-+Apple+Intelligence)' target='_blank'>http://www.9to5mac.com/apple_iphone...e+Intelligence)</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple's most senior legal chief has approached Gizmodo demanding the return of the iPhone 4G, revelations of which dominated news headlines yesterday."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1271769140.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>I'm sure you are all aware of the news over the last few days, about the "4G" iPhone in the wild. Skepticism turned towards belief as more details emerged about the iPhone that was lost in a bar and <a href="http://gizmodo.com/5520164/this-is-apples-next-iphone?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Feed:+gizmodo/full+(Gizmodo)" target="_blank">reported by Gizmodo</a>, who in turn <a href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100419/ap_on_hi_te/us_tec_apple_iphone" target="_blank">paid a few bucks</a> to get it in&nbsp;their offices. Now it appears Apple legal has sent them a letter demanding the "property" be returned (and has been returned according to <a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/apple-formally-asks-for-iphone-back-gizmodo-returns-it/39045?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=feed&amp;utm_campaign=Feed:+cultofmac/bFow+(Cult+of+Mac)" target="_blank">Cult of Mac</a>). So it all adds up to either a <a href="http://gizmodo.com/5520438/how-apple-lost-the-next-iphone" target="_blank">bad luck story for the engineer</a> that lost it or a <a href="http://www.itwire.com/opinion-and-analysis/core-dump/38428-next-iphone-out-of-the-bag-accidental-loss-or-a-marketing-ploy" target="_blank">well planned PR scheme</a>. What are your thoughts about the "new look" and the idea that this may have been just a huge PR event?</p>

I love the new look and everything that has been reported about this device. I see this device in my future!

It has occurred to me that this may be a sly leak on Apple's part but we'll never actually know. (Well, if the engineer is fired, I guess we'll know).

I think that there is some "truth" in this device, but I'm willing to be that the case is not a final design - the side volume buttons just don't look like something that Apple would do. I could be wrong, I suppose.

So, let's see - this device hits Engadget and Gizmodo on the very weekend that Verizon Wireless starts the presale of the Droid Incredible, when the NDA gets lifted and the reviews all appear. I could definitely see this being a plant.
