CNET's Gred Sandoval and Declan McCullagh were informed from a source that an iPhone 5 prototype went missing in July 22, a tequila lounge in San Francisco's Mission District
Rumors that iPhone 5 was sold on Craigslist for $200 has not been confirmed. However, according to CNET, Apple electronically traced the phone to a two-floor, single family home in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood. Police searched the house but didn't find the phone, according to CNET.
This is the reminder of an embarrassing incident of Apple again.
In the deep anticipation of iPhone 4’s release in March 2010, Apple software engineer Gray Powell was drinking with friends to celebrate his birthday in Redwood City, Calif. After leaving the bar, fellow imbibers noticed an iPhone left behind by Powell. Two men, who did not know Powell, took the phone and supposedly tried to contact Apple to return the item to no avail.
The phone was later sold to technology blog Gizmodo for $5,000. After confirming it was the real Apple product, they dissected the device and published their findings. Brian Hogan and Sage Wallower, the two men who found and sold the iPhone 4 to editors at Gizmodo were charged with a misdemeanor.
So When is the iPhone 5 finally released? Nothing has been confirmed by Apple yet.
