so maybe we would), but nevertheless, a strange reference was recently spotted while perusing some of the source code on Apple's website. The code, which was noticed "while looking through the source on the feedback site," lists iPhone Extreme as a product value, but that's absolutely all we have to go on for now. Notably, this isn't the first time a handset has been prematurely discovered by snooping through code, but here's to hoping that this thing gets a name change if it indeed proves real.
UPDATE: AppleInsider is now reporting that the phrase was "simply a sloppy copy-and-paste job on the part of an Apple webmaster who apparently used the company's existing AirPort Extreme feedback form to creating one for the iPhone."
