Here’s the Way Apple Protects its Prototypes (Video)

Remember the iPhone 4G prototype that recently became famous on the interwebs, by being analysed by Gizmodo? It was lost in a pub in March, but before getting there it was encased in a special protective shell that made it look like an iPhone 3GS.

This is a clever way of hiding a prototype, by making everyone think you have the older model, but a quick peak at the sides of the devices would reveal the new separated volume buttons. Also, at the back, instead of the finding the usual brand of the device and the FCC logo, you find nothing, which would seem suspicious for a normal iPhone.

Next time, be on the lookout for strange iPhones… possibly after the 4G units is launched, since now we know Apple’s strategy. Video of the “secret prototype case” after the break:
