Apple has confirmed that Steve Jobs himself will be hosting the keynote talk at this year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 – raising chances that the gathering will be used to unveil the upcoming iPhone 4.
Though there’s no direct evidence to confirm this, if nothing else we know that a new iPhone is both in development and nearing release.
Early builds of the gadget have in recent weeks been spotted (or ‘acquired’)by both Gizmodo and Vietnamese site Taoviet.
Kicking off on June 7th, WWDC is designed to provide advanced advice for skilled developers across five key technology tracks.
The 5000 attendees will be able to attend sessions in the following tracks: Application Frameworks; Internet & Web; Graphics & Media; Developer Tools; and Core OS.
Apple are renowned for their ability to keep secrets, but that may have all changed!
A report on the popular geek blog website gizmodo reports to have found the a lost iPhone 4G in a bar in Redwood City (California).
The phone itself was cleverly disguised as an iPhone 3G in order to prevent attracting attention.
- Front facing camera (as rumoured!)
- Improved back camera (larger lens)
- Camera flash (finally!)
- Micro-SIM rather than a regular SIM card
- Improved display
- Secondary mic
- Split buttons for volume control
- Power, mute and volume buttons are metalic
- The back is flat (unlike the iPhone 3G/S) and made of glass/shiney plastic
- The screen is smaller but has a higher resolution
- Everything is square
- 3 grams heavier
- 16% larger battery
- Internal components are smaller
Apparently, the phone was remotely “killed” by Apple one they discovered that it was missing, so Gizmodo were unable to get the phone working.

As always, there are many different “mockups” of future Apple products; but the image featured here is supposedly a “leaked” photograph of Apples latest and greatest version of the iPhone (4G: 4th Generation).
Apple have refused to confirm if the image in question is a prototype of the new iPhone 4G, but judging from the brushed metal design of the iPad, it may well be similar in appearance.
The speculation behind the new iPhone will soon be put to rest, since Apple will be revealing it’s creation in June 2010. The release of the iPhone 4.0 SDK last week suggests the new iPhone will feature an 8 megapixel camera, a flash and also a front facing camera for video conferencing.
