It appears someone has gotten their hands on an iPhone 5 prototype from the Foxconn factory in Jincheng. The tipster stated that it has a larger screen and feels thinner. Here is a video of it booting up but does not boot into iOS 6 as it has not been registered yet. Do you think this video is fake?

Smarter Stand is a simple accessory that will turn your Apple Smart Cover into a multi-position iPad stand. When Apple released the Smart Cover for the iPad it got the name “Smart” cover because it was magnetic and was a simple and effective way to cover your iPad. However, a cover is all it really is. Although it can act as a stand, the Smart Cover is a poor choice of stands for a lot of applications.
Introducing the Smarter Stand, designed by Dotan Saguy. It takes The Smart Cover and makes it smarter. Now your Smart Cover is not just a cover, but also a fully functional stand that can be used for multiple view pleasures. The clips are made out of ABS plastic so you know they are going to hold up for a long time. You could however use a paperclip as a cheap alternative to the Smarter Stand, but you run the risk of damaging your Smart Cover or scratching your iPad. At a current price of $14, I rather spend the money and protect my $500+ iPad.
We were able to get a pre-production sample of the Smarter Stand. The build quality of the sample is more of a prototype quality than the real finished product. This is due to the short time frame available to produce the samples within the Kickstarter project time constraints. The material used for the Smart Clips in the final product will be a much more rigid and dense type of plastic that holds its shape well and feels more substantial. As a result of the lower quality plastic used in this sample, the Smart Clips don’t slide as well as they will with the final product. However they are functional to hold the Smart Cover in the various positions described in the Quick Start Guide.
Even though the unit we review was not the final product, It was still an awesome design and worked just as expected. The pre-production model that we received very well could of been the final product. It is a sturdy plastic that will hold up overtime. Although it was tougher to move it around to certain positions, I find that to be a good problem. You don’t want them to slip and then have your iPad tumble down. Overall, Smarter Stand is a simple and effective design that everyone who uses Apple’s Smart Cover or Smart Case should have. It is money well spent!
Smarter Stand is being funded on KickStarter. It has already received over 6,500 backers who have pledged over $112,000.00. The Smarter Stand will retail for $20, but if you would like to get one before the general public you can pledge $14 or more.read more
Gizmodo are a rather tricky company. Having bought the secret iPhone 4 prototype for $5,000 to gain access to a world-exclusive, despite the fact the phone had technically been left and was now classified as stolen technology by many in the journalistic community, alongside many Apple fans and Apple’s staff themselves, they are getting away with it, too.
It’s bizarre, as whether you’re Apple or another outlet, that announcement was important, but seemingly the judge didn’t think Gizmodo had done anything wrong, despite the blackmailing of Apple and the $5,000 paid to acquire lost technology that didn’t belong to them. People sell found phones all the time, but usually, those people are classified as criminals.
It’s difficult to tell whether there will be any repercussions, but it certainly won’t do Gizmodo’s credibility any good. Journalistic integrity is one thing – journalistic integrity in the eyes of the public is something else entirely, and the News of the World phone hacking scandal was a clear example of what happens when an outlet’s legally questionable journalistic practices are brought into the public eye.
The problem with this is that it sets a dangerous precedent, and Gizmodo’s excuse of Apple being “cold” with them on a PR basis is a poor justification for blackmail and the purchase of a prototype that was never meant to be shown to the press at that point in time, and if you’re writing about a designer/manufacturer like Apple or a carrier like O2, you have to work with them professionally, rather than taking this route. By allowing this to slide, lesser transgressions (and potentially ones of equal or even greater severity) no longer seem to carry the same weight of consequence as they once did.
Only time will tell whether Gizmodo’s reputation suffers at all for it, and whether or not their readership will see this as a sign that their journalistic code may be somewhat skewed in comparison to outlets who lacked a world exclusive. But would they have done the same, had it come to them first? Who knows.read more
Looks like BGR has some interesting photos which show that Apple is testing an iPhone prototype on the T-Mobile USA network. This could be the next iPhone 5 displayed in an iPhone 4 shell. The build model is N94. The Verizon model was N92 and the Original iPhone 4 was N90. We can also see that the proximity sensor is in a different location and the device is running an internal build of iOS 4 which test applicaitons like Radar and Apple’s Employee directory app. Hopefully this device gets released soon, most likely we will see the iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 on T-Mobile USA when Apple’s make their next announcement. Regardless T-Mobile USA folks will get their hands on a device in the next year with the T-Mobile & AT&T merger.
As soon as we have more information we will post it.

Hey guys, now, as you know, last year at about this time, Gizmodo got their hands on the next generation of iPhone, this turned out to be the iPhone 4. Now, there was a lot of drama and a lot of speculation and everything, we were sure the device was legit when we saw the images. I knew this was Apple’s device, turned out to be true.
Anyways, if you recall, Gizmodo’s iPhone 4 was remote wiped and there was no way to restore it since iOS 4 for iPhone 4 was still months away. Well, a couple days ago, i heard rumors of someone having gotten their hands on a 64Gb iPhone 4 prototype, it was just until today that I could confirm that this is legitimate.
It seems as though M.I.C Gadget got a hold of a leaked iPhone 4 “engineering prototype” from a back room deal at one of Apple’s Chinese production plants.
Now, some things of note, the back says “XXGB” like Gizmodo’s iPhone 4, this could signal that the phone they had was 64GB since other leaked units had 16GB or 32GB where the capacity was at. This could have been Apple’s way of concealing it.
Also, we have the serial number and judging by the way Apple does their serial numbers, this phone was manufactured about 1 year ago. Also, it carries the model number of 995-6049LL. It also lacks the “+ and “-” on the volume buttons, just like Gizmodo’s model. Oh, and it was completely unlocked, no carrier locks whatsoever as well as running iOS 4.1 (I guess they haven’t updated to iOS 4.2.1?)
This is pretty cool stuff. However, this makes you wonder, why didn’t Apple release a 64GB iPhone 4? This may also signal that a 64GB model is coming to iPhone 5, but maybe it will be introduced this Summer at WWDC.
Unwire.hk, is reporting that you can purchase a 64GB iPhone 4 Prototype in Sin Tak, which is the greyest grey market in all of Hong Kong, so this means that they must have a few of them.
