Doubtful. The design, testing, and manufacturing process take months. These designs were locked in quite awhile ago! In fact, the iPhone 3G case was leaked ~67 days before it was announced. This phone was leaked ~70 days before its hypothetical announcement. It's too late in the process to significantly change it.
That said, there's the possibility that this is a test platform, prototype. But from the Gizmodo photos, it looks too well engineered.
I agree! but I feel there is a good probability that this is just a material testing more than form testing. The mainboard might be near final design, but the exteriors doesn't look great. Lets see what Steve pulls out of his hat...
not likely, but still a hilarious notion... I wish they would release Zune HD with a phone and an apple logo!!! that would really shake things up!!
