Griffin exposes 3G iPhone?
Production equipment for iPhone accessories has possibly confirmed the exterior design of the 3G iPhone, according to a Chinese website. iDealsChina (site not linked due to speed) says it has obtained photos of molds being used by Griffin, which were built with the express purpose of producing new silicone FlexGrip cases for Apple's yet-to-be-announced device. The images appear to confirm a thinner, more rounded back on the iPhone, and consequentially a new position for the camera.
Griffin is said to already be in the middle of producing the new cases, which according to iDeals estimates implies that Griffin has had the 3G iPhone for at least 14 to 19 days, and likely longer, as it would have to add its own custom touches regardless of the simplicity of a silicone case. The device is expected to be announced at Apple's WWDC conference, beginning June 9th.
