Few Details Emerge About Leaked iPhone in Vietnam

The Associated Press managed to track down Tran Manh Hiep, the mobile phone accessory salesman in Vietnam who posted a hands on video of the next generation iPhone earlier this week.

The trail seems to end there, however, as Hiep isn't the owner of the device. Hiep reportedly rushed down to a cafe in Ho Chi Minh City after he heard someone was showing off the unauthorized device. He believes the phone is authentic, and said "when I plugged it into a Mac, it recognized it as an Apple product".

The actual owner of the device is another Vietnamese mobile phone dealer. Hiep said he did not know how the man got the iPhone.
