Am I the only one who is actually bored of seeing videos and posts containing parts and casings from the alleged next iPhone due out in June?
When it comes to fanboyism, I’m a card-carrying member of the church of Jobs, but I’m actually fed up of reading about this stuff. At this point there has to be more iPhone 4G parts out in the wild than in Apple’s inventory.
Does it not seem strange to anyone else that the iPhone 3GS was launched with almost no information beforehand except Apple’s approved communications, whereas there are more iPhone 4G prototype parts out in the wild than iPads?
I’ve said for a long time that I’d love to see Apple pull some kind of massive publicity stunt that pokes fun at the rumor sites and gossip blogs by releasing a load of fake and misleading information, then releasing an entirely different device. I doubt that’s the case (pun absolutely intended).
The more boring, yet more plausible explanation might be that Apple uses controlled leaks to test market reaction and root out untrustworthy employees.
Either way, we’ll see for sure on June 11th at WWDC.
