iphone51

A tipster sent this photo to 9to5Mac claiming it to be an iPhone hehad never seen before.

Last evening, a tipster sent us some pictures of what he now thinks is the iPhone 5. He caught what he said was likely an Apple employee hunched over the device on the way home from work in San Francisco earlier this week. He told us he was able to get a very good look at the device but the pictures he snapped “didn’t do it justice”.

According to the report the screen was larger, almost "Evo-Like" and appeared thinner/wider than the existing iPhone 4.

We're not entirely convinced but provide this image for discussion. Apple has, of course, been known to seed test units into the wild before. In fact, last year's iPhone 4 was lost/found in a bar before it was sold to tech site Gizmodo.

For reference, here is a photo of an iPhone 3GS taken from across the room:

I saw the new macbook pro too! I took a picture, and although it's a grainy picture, you can clearly see the Apple logo!

If I were Steve, I would have personally told all field-testers of the iPhone 5 three things:

1. Test the iPhone 5 without any case. Better to test antenna efficiency.

2. Put a piece of black electrician's tape over the shiny silver Apple logo.

3. If you leave an iPhone 5 prototype in a bar I will stab you through the heart with a pencil.

It would be awsome if we start to see a bunch of people running around with different smart phones with these stickers on the back of the phone just screwing with all of us!
