New iPhone 2010: 4G Device and Marketing

By Alan Ng - Apr 21, 2010

It is no surprise that Gizmodo’s capture of the iPhone 4G prototype has gotten everyones attention in these past few days, one of them being ABCNews. They have now asked their readers whether they think it is a big mistake by Apple, or a clever marketing strategy.

It seems like a lot of you are divided. Some are yet to believe that Apple would disclose such a big trade secret and let one of their low-key Software Engineers have access to their prized asset, even if it was disguised as an iPhone 3GS.

On the other hand, there is a fair amount of you who believe that Apple did this on purpose, in order to engage public interest for the upcoming device – strongly expected to be revealed at WWDC in June. If this is true, then you have to say it is pretty cunning by Apple – but still very farfetched.

Where do you stand on the debate? Genuine mistake by Apple or a smart business move?
