iPhone 3G in in the Wild and Un-boxed... in Portugal?!

Not so fast New Zealand, turns out some NDA/do-not-open violating Portuguese iPhone-luster got his or her hands on the first iPhone 3G! (outside of Steve Jobs and Walt Mossberg, 'natch!) Apple Store insider? Carrier higher-up? Who knows -- and who cares -- we just want the pics! (Actually, we just want the iPhone 3G ourselves!

Check out the photos via the read link, if the Portuguese interwebs don't come crashing to their knees under the load...

  • That plastic back is going to be a ***** to keep clean and unfingerprinty... It looks like the poster needs to wash the fried chicken grease (or whatever food they fry in Portugal) off his hands before taking his pictures! lol
  • El Jobso and Moishe are not doubt even now using advanced Apple imaging tech to blow up and run the fingerprint through Interpol. Expect a no-knock on the door any time now, un-box-tard! :)
  • OMG! That SIM card removal tool is a HUGE improvement over the paper clip! lol
  • That black back looks like is the biggest grease magnet in teh world.
  • Gonna have to wear a white glove to keep the finger prints off.
  • Wow, the black is sooo dirty! I mean... I plan on getting a protective case for it so maybe it doesn't matter? But seeing this picture is like torture!!! I can't take it! Won't Friday get here sooner?!?
