The iPad can suck my wiener. I hoped a new iphone was coming out, and this looks like the proof. This knowledge outweighs any interest I have in joining the uberdouche iPad brigade (Seriously. If I see you with an iPad, I will probably hate you — well, maybe after I steal and play with your iPad for 20 minutes). Forward camera? The new iPhone 4.0 OS? Micro-SIM? A better rear camera with flash? Higher resolution screen? Yup, sign me up. Is this a publicity stunt? Will the guy mentioned in the article get ousted at work for the rest of time because he was an idiot who left the phone in a bar?
UPDATE: Gray Powell. That’s the dude that supposedly left the iphone 4 at the bar. Poor guy just got outed all over the friggin internet. He’s the new “George W. Bush” as far as fails are concerned. You can read more of the article over at Gizmodo again, because they seem to be the ones that are posting all the juice. I am now predicting major publicity stunt – a very successfully played publicity stunt. I do see this as being a very similar clone to the new iPhone at the very least. Hell, Apple surely couldn’t take a step BACKWARDS from this!
UPDATE 2.0: Apple has asked for their phone back.
Read the article and feel free to rag on my for succumbing to corporate marketing mumbo-jumbo, much like the iPad-ers. [GIZMODO]
