The iPhone 4 is certainly no longer the secret it was when Gizmodo revealed all last year, but that doesn’t mean some original prototypes aren’t still finding their way into the wild -- and onto eBay, where one such model is currently fetching upwards of $2,000 after hitting a million bucks thanks to phony bidders.
With the second quarter of 2011 now just a memory, analysts are already looking ahead to the financial results anticipated by many tech companies. Among them are Verizon Wireless, who is predicted to show a drop in iPhone 4 sales ahead of the presumed September launch of the next model.
Although Apple only started offering officially unlocked iPhone 4 models in the United States earlier this month, that hasn’t stopped owners from using jailbreak methods to free their devices from AT&T’s clutches and into the waiting arms of T-Mobile, who now claims there are more than a million such users on their network.
There may not be a new iPhone this month, but that doesn’t mean Apple is sitting on their thumbs basking in the warm glow of summer. A new report claims that the company is slowing orders for iPhone 4 components, which can mean only one thing: New models ahoy!
Following on the heels of a weekend rumor, Apple’s U.S. online store opened its virtual doors this morning with a new entry to its lineup -- the same old iPhone 4 you already know and love, available in black or white, 16GB or 32GB, but with one very different change.
They say knowledge is power. And that’s true in a metaphorical sense, but when your iPhone is dead, only power is power.

One piece of news flew in under the radar with the WWDC keynote picking up most headlines. In case you've been holding out for a reason to pick up an iPhone 4, now might be as good of a time as any, as Wal-Mart has reduced the price of the 16GB model to $147 from $197!
Here’s a number you can probably expect to hear at today’s WWDC keynote: 200. That’s how many carriers are now handling Apple’s iPhone, a number that was only 186 at the end of March. Can anything stop this juggernaut?
When Apple introduced FaceTime almost a year ago, it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the adult industry might try to subvert it for their own fun and profit -- but apparently, there wasn’t enough fun and even less profit in FaceTime porn.
iPhone 3GS owners: Don’t look for sympathy from users of the original iPhone or even the iPhone 3G when Apple finally unleashes iOS 5 later this year -- according to a new rumor floating around, the 3GS will be disinherited from running the next iOS.
