White iPhone 4 showing off prototype iOS 4 fast app switching, folder UI?

Vietnamese site Tinhte might just have gotten their hands on an official white iPhone 4 from Apple... running a previously unseen version of iOS! While it could also just be a clever set of Jailbreak tweaks, the video shows a new version of the multitasking fast app switching that replaces the dock icons in iOS 4 with miniature tiles of the actual apps, sort of like Exposé for iPhone.

Whether this is something destined for an interim iOS 4.4, our first hint at iOS 5, or some Jailbreak wizardry only Apple knows for sure. But it is interesting that it shows up on the anniversary of the Gizmodo iPhone 4 leak, isn't it?

UPDATE: Per comments, yes there are some old icons but also some Apple internal test icons. Weird. Second video from the same source that shows off, among other things, 64GB, a new rendering for Folders, and Facebook built into settings.

UPDATE 2: This might just be a prototype iPhone 4 running an early test version of iOS 4 which included Folder and Fast App Switching UI Apple later decided against implementing (going with what we see now in the release version of iOS 4.)

Check out the video after the break and let us know, real, fake, or really fake? And if real, what do you think?

HBO Go to bring Game of Thrones, Sopranos, movies, more to iPhone and iPad

After years of rumors it looks like HBO is finally ready to throw their hat -- and programing content like Game of Thrones and Sopranos -- into the iPad and iPhone ring with HBO Go. It looks like it will have all their original hit shows and some movies as well, and work over Wi-Fi and 3G.

HBO Go will come via "participating TV providers" -- whatever that means -- perhaps as early as May 2. You'll have to be an HBO subscriber to use it. No word yet on whether it will be available internationally -- but we can dream, right?

iOS 4.3.2 untethered jailbreak (mostly) released

redsn0w 0.9.6rc13 is here and it brings with it the promise of an untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2 devices including iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3 and 4, and iPad 1. iPhone 4 will be coming as soon as a fix is made, and iPad 2 is still waiting on a new exploit (yes, we're sad too.) According to the Dev-Team:

Only a few weeks after the 4.3.1 untether created by @i0n1c was released, Apple pushed out firmware 4.3.2. Thankfully, it appears Apple didn’t have a chance to fix the hole used by @i0n1c’s untether, so he ported his code over to 4.3.2’s kernel. Today’s redsn0w has been updated to include it.
