iPhone 4S - Rumors, release, and future unboxing (#5 not alive)

http://www.bgr.com/2011/08/31/apple-...n-a-bar-again/

I can't believe this happened again. Seems awfully fishy to me.

Maybe Apple should prohibit their engineers that are testing the new Iphones from going out DRINKING AT BARS until after the launch.

Ha ha this is too funny or planned, seeing as were allegedly 4-6 weeks from launch

I don't know, but this place sounds like an Americanized hipster Mexican restaurant

And yes, Mexicans are not allowed to buy iphones. Apple won't even let them into their stores and has recently tried to lobby to have the name san Francisco americanized

I'd agree this is fishy. I've never left my phone at the bar, even when completely wasted. I sure as hell wouldn't leave a top secret prototype iphone on accident, especially after it happened before. Either apple has employees that need to be fired, or this is someones idea of good publicity.

If the rumors about the 8.3 mp camera and (slightly) larger screen are true then I can't wait to upgrade my 3GS.

This should definitely be a worthy upgrade. I'm crossing my fingers that this is a 4G phone.

I'm pretty sure it won't. Apple is concerned about the early chipsets being too power hungry.

The "real" iPhone 5 will be out next year just in time for my contract to expire. New phone and new carrier, here I come.

Sketchy, but I fault the guy for letting them in. Search warrant?

Why would you say this? If true, all involved should face the full penalty of law.

Wonder why the dumbass let them in his house without a warrant?

looks like the iphone 4 to me.

apple should make the iphone 5 in a variety of colors, like the nano and the shuffle.

Seems kind of pointless these days. Everyone seems to get some type of case that pretty much covers the phone.

So anything to back up the rumors that all of the Big Four are getting this phone?
