Three versions of iPhone 4.0 code in testing?

Firmware shows up in testing

Apple may at the moment be testing not one but three different versions of the iPhone 4.0 firmware, online usage statistics suggest. Developer PixelCUBE notes that when looking at figures from analytics firm Pinch Media, it caught sight of some unusual data showing v4.0, v4.0.1 and v4.1 devices in the wild. Although it may be possible that the firmware IDs are being spoofed, Apple is known to work on several iterations of a piece of software at once.

An iPhone 4.0 event has already been scheduled for this Thursday, less than a week after the debut of iPhone 3.2, which accompanies the iPad. Features of v4.0 remain mostly speculative, but some reports back the addition of multitasking, which could be handled through an Expose-like interface. People may also gain an independent file system, and universal access to background wallpapers, as on the iPad.
