Default Next generation iPhone leaked

I am curious that why Apple's legal department did not step out to take actions this time? Policy change? Can you recall a single circumstance that Apple will let this continue in its near history?

On the other hand, I don't think that Apple will use this enclosure design in next generation's iPhone. Ugly.

I rather like the design. That said, for those who don't, the Engadget and Giz articles mention that there's at least one case in existence that magically morphs it in to a 3GS!

On what grounds? Plus the horse was already well out of the barn.

It sounded like from what I read on Engadget that this phone may have originally been working but got nuked remotely by Apple once they realized that the horse was out of the barn, thus preventing any software-level discoveries. There probably is nothing they can legally do to Gizmodo or Engadget at this point, though if they knew who "lost" the device (and they evidently know exactly which device it is) they're probably looking for employment right about now.

Whoah, who are these, guys, the CIA? Or the M.I. team?

Any competent company has a reporting policy for lost phones that are enabled for mail/etc. Report the phone missing, IT sends the brick command, no data gets lost. Its been pretty much standard for years now. RIM had it with the BB pretty much as soon as it came out. Iphone has had it since Gen2/3. Its a basic requirement for a phone to be used in a corp environment though a lot of companies go even further and require encryption and secure passwords as well.

I agree, but nuking it remotely has just gone too far.

G1 here. I'd do a droid if it was on T-Mobile (they've treated me well and given me no reason to change providers, unlike Cingular did.. I've been with them since the VoiceStream days), or Nexus One if it had a keyboard. I'm waiting for a proper QWERTY slider update. I don't like most of the keyboards that are available, squished 3 or 4 row keyboards, I want 5 row.
