Czech site Jablíčkář.cz has posted an informal review of the iPhone 4, which the site claims to have. The review also includes links to several images the site says was taken with the iPhone 4’s new camera. If true, the high quality images offer the first look at the capabilities of Apple’s new iPhone, which won’t officially ship until June 24th, and even then not in the Czech Republic.
Image taken of the iPhone with a current paper offered as proof that it’s real
The iPhone 4 was provided to the site by a person code named Swenak, according to a Google translation of the article. How Swenak got an iPhone 4 several weeks before release in the Czech Republic is not even alluded to.
The review is very short on details, and is offered more as a “No, we really do have this” kind of piece. Swenak told Jablíčkář.cz that he likes his device, that it’s fast, that the GPS functionality is “surprisingly quick,” and that it fits in one’s pocket much better than previous versions because it is thinner.
The image below is one of several posted to ImageShack (Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4, Image 5) that was supposedly taken with the device. It’s been reduced to 23% of its original size, but you can see the full size image at ImageShack. Jablíčkář.cz has an HD video taken with the device, too.
Photo said to have been taken with iPhone 4
Apple has had more problems with iPhone 4 models leaked into the wild than with any previous product, possibly more than all previous products combined. A prototype would up in the hands of a Vietnamese Web site, and of course there’s the device that was sold to Gizmodo earlier this year.
The photos of the device with current newspapers certainly lend to the story’s credibility, but even so we’d suggest having that bag of salt on hand for doses as needed when considering Jablíčkář.cz’s story.
