Second 4th Gen iPhone Found & Dissected

Seems Apple's impregnable security really has been busted wide open once and for all...

Vietnamese site taoviet.vn has become the second site to get its hands on a pre-production iPhone (presumably without paying for it) and given us a detailed tear down that confirms an Apple A4 processor is inside.

Whether this processor is exactly the same speed as that in the iPad (read our review here) remains to be seen, but it would make sense for Apple to match up both devices from a developer perspective. Coming a month on from the first leak, the most noticeable physical difference is the disappearance of screws from around the new metallic border which suggests it is a more production ready model. It is also running Apple's 'Bonfire' testing software.

So with the cat well and truly out of the bag, down the street, off to the gun store and back to shoot the bag holder all that is left to say is: roll on 7 June...

...oh and beware the Boyzone Bee-Gees soundtrack in the video's background.

In related news Apple has disputed an NPD report which claims shipments of Android handsets outsold the iPhone in the US for the first time during Q1. The margin was significant with BlackBerry responsible for 36 per cent of all smartphone sales, Android 28 per cent and the iPhone 21 per cent and shouldn't be surprising given the numerous models and price brackets for phones running Google's mobile OS.

Still Apple spokesperson Natalie Harrison said the figures didn't take into account the 85m iPhone and iPod touch units sold around the World to date. To which I'm pretty sure in saying: they weren't meant to.
