The Case of the “Lost” iPhone 4G

##ICON_NAME## So, as many of you well know… Apple’s 4th generation iPhone has made it’s debut a little early. Personally, I’m a skeptic by nature (more on that later) but here is what we know.

Apple employee Gray Powell (Apple Software Engineer working on the iPhone Baseband Software) seems to be the fellow who was once the owner of the lost 4th generation iPhone. On Thursday, March 18th, he was apparently celebrating his 27th birthday at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a nice German beer garden in Redwood City, California (which happens to be just 20 miles from Apple’s Loop headquarters) where he “supposedly” had a few too many of those German ales.

The New iPhone 4G HD Commercial?

YouTubeThis is obviously not official but it’s the clip at the end that gets me pretty excited. I really hope that Apple released the next iPhone to have video chat. It would be a great feature that would blow away competition. I don’t really think Apple will change the overall design of the iPhone to something like this shape and color. I’m hoping for front facing camera, larger megapixel rear camera, a flash, zoom, & 1Ghz processor, better battery and maybe some of the new features of the iPad firmware. Any other features on your wish list?
