Holy crap is this a leak...

 

What's new

• Front-facing video chat camera
• Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
• Camera flash
• Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
• Improved display. It's unclear if it's the 960x460 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the "Connect to iTunes" screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
• What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
• Split buttons for volume
• Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

The man that lost the iPhone:

On the night of March 18, he was enjoying the fine imported ales at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a nice German beer garden in Redwood City, California. He was happy. The place was great. The beer was excellent. "I underestimated how good German beer is," he typed into the next-generation iPhone he was testing on the field, cleverly disguised as an iPhone 3GS. It was his last Facebook update from the secret iPhone. It was the last time he ever saw the iPhone, right before he abandoned it on bar stool, leaving to go home.

Knowing how ferocious and ruthless Apple is about product leaks, those beers may have turned out to be the bitterest of his life.

 

Apple wants phone back:

 

So, this is how the Gizmodo iPhone story ends. Apple asked for its phone back.

 

Out in June/July!!!! Time to save the pennies!!!

Apple isn't likely to unveil the new iPhone

officially until its Worldwide Developers Conference, which usually takes place in June. And the new phone probably won't go on sale until June or July.

Giz paid $5,000 for the story???

 

Finally, we hear the price that Gizmodo paid for the phone was laughably small—particularly for what looks to already be one of Gawker Media's top-five most trafficked news posts. Update: The first number out of the gate is a mere $10,000. We think that's a little high, actually! Update: We hear it's $5000, with a bonus for traffic. Update: And then we hear Steve Jobs picked up the phone to say hi. Ruh roh. Update: And then Gizmodo semi-explained how they came by the iPhone: an apparently drunk developer left it in a bar. On March 18. Which then somehow wended its way to Gizmodo—to be posted about a month later. (We presume some of that time involved the Gawker Media legal department doing their job.) Gizmodo is currently being roasted in the comments for naming the Apple engineer. And what's more, Nick Denton confirmed the $5000 bounty to the "finder"

Silicon Valley cops raid Gizmodo editor's home, take four computers

 

Police broke into the home of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen and confiscated four computers and two servers, the tech blog reports. Gizmodo broke the news last week about Apple's next-generation iPhone, after paying a source who found it in a California bar $5,000 for the device.

 

The officers were from the Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team (REACT), a California law enforcement group based in Silicon Valley. In the search warrant, which Gizmodo posted, REACT officers checked a box indicating that they were looking for property "used as a means of committing a felony."

Since the Gizmodo iPhone scoop broke last week, some have speculated that Gizmodo and its parent company, Gawker Media, might be liable for criminal prosecution for being in receipt of stolen goods under California law.

 

Gawker has blasted back at the police with seized-property charges of...

Camera rumors:

The first, and more straightforward of the two, comes courtesy of The Chosum Ilbo, which is reporting that the next iPhone will pack a 5-megapixel camera supplied by LG Innotek. Details on it are otherwise pretty light, but the site says that LG has already started producing the "sophisticated cameras" at its plant in Gumi...

The guy that found it only got $5,000 for selling it to Gizmodo?

 

Following a trail of "clues" on social-networking sites and confirming his ID with a source "involved in the iPhone find," Wired named Hogan on Thursday as the bar patron who made off with Apple's top-secret iPhone prototype and then sold it to Gizmodo for $5,000 after an Apple software engineer left the precious phone on a bar stool.

Up until now, Hogan's identity has been a mystery to the public, but the 21-year-old college student (or at least, he was a college student as of
