iPhone Spotted in Wild
The iPhone is in everyday use by engineers, according to one Silicon Valley-area blogger. A visit to a local restaurant in the southern San Francisco Bay area caught an Apple employee using the device openly, browsing the web and taking photos with the 2-megapixel webcam; the employee readily admitted to being involved with the development team, according to the writer. Whether or not the device was still in a late testing phase was uncertain. The screen was nevertheless said "crystal clear" even from two feet away and was housed in a body identical to the model shown at Macworld in January.
Public use of the phone has been reported in the past for Apple CEO Steve Jobs and other employees, but has until now remained unconfirmed through photographic evidence. Such reports appear to validate Apple's claims that the iPhone remains on track for a late June release. [via GeekNuz]
