    iPhone prototype running China Mobile -- Real, fake, or really fake?

    Sohu.com published a photo of what appears to be an iPhone prototype running on the China Mobile network. If it isn't fake -- and we take such things with a Great Wall sized grain of salt -- it suggests the iPhone maybe coming to the world's largest carrier sooner rather than later.

    The phone appears to run baseband software with version number 06.10.01, which hasn’t been released yet. It also lacks an IMEI number, just like an iPhone 4 prototype we spotted on eBay. Evaluation devices normally have no IMEI number.

    Could 5 new iOS devices make up Apple's fall family?

    Previous years have seen Apple's annual fall music event showcase iTunes and iPod in decreasingly spectacular fashion, last year's exceptions being the iPod touch 4 with cameras and the all new, all iOS-powered Apple TV. This year could be very different, with the possibility of Apple introducing up to 5 new iOS devices to the family at roughly the same time. It would be unprecedented, but so was no new iPhone back at WWDC 2011 in June.

    iPhone 6, iPhone nano rumors trickling out

    Remember this morning when I mentioned that The Wall Street Journal iPhone 5 rumors lacked the usual wink-wink, nudge-nudge controlled leak flare? I asked for miracles, and the WSJ gives us Yukari Iwatani Kane. Writing alongside Lorraine Luk, Kane, who's track record is excellent, adds:

    A person briefed on Apple's product plans said the company initially planned to launch its next iPhone this summer as it usually does, but the device wasn't ready in time.

    Apple preparing to ship thinner, lighter iPhone 5?

    It's not the wink-wink, nudge-nudge controlled leak we've come to expect from The Wall Street Journal, but according to their supply chain sources "familiar with the situation", iPhone 5 might indeed have a new casing:

    According to some suppliers of components to Apple, the new version of the iPhone is expected to be thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4 and sport an 8-megapixel camera. One person said the new iPhone will operate on Qualcomm Inc.'s wireless baseband chips.

    Verizon dropping iPhone 4 price to $150?

    It appears VZBuzz has gotten their hands on some Verizon marketing material showing the iPhone 4 price dropping to $150.99. The screen also shows a plethora of Android and Blackberry price drops as well. I don't find it hard to believe this is legitimate as many carriers and retailers have been known to drop the price of the iPhone in anticipation of a new hardware announcement -- like iPhone 5 -- in order to clear out inventory.

    Verizon currently offers refurbished iPhone 4's for $150, so could wesee a price drop in those as well?

    Manufacturer gets order for 15 million iPhone 5s for September release?

    DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwanese manufacturer Pegatron Technology has landed a huge order from Apple to manufacture the iPhone 5. The order is thought to be in the region of 15 million iPhone 5 units and it will start shipping in September. Pegatron Technology currently manufactures the Verizon CDMA iPhone 4 for Apple. The information comes from upstream component makers, of course, and not from Pegatron Technology itself.

    iPhone 5 made entirely from fruit and vegetables [Tuesday fun video]

    The crazy guys from Topfruit have put together a very clever time lapse video showing what they think the iPhone 5 will look like. Strangely enough, these fruit obsessed people decided to make an iPhone 5 solely from fruit and vegetables. They also point out that no fruit was harmed during the making of the video. All the fruit was used for compost at the end!

    Take a look at the video after the break and let us know what you think!
