It's a publicity stunt, just as the iPhone4 was.

This is so funny! Apple is throwing away a prototype worth 1000's of dollars to get in the news.

actually the iphone 4 wasn't a publicity stunt because the guy "mysteriously" committed suicide a week later. He was actually thrown off the roof of foxconn over in china

it's publicity, it just didn't work in their favor this time cuz it was just some random dumbass that found it rather than someone who knew what they had

I suppose I agree with that, mine was company purchased and in it's year of steady, work-related use, it has been pretty solid. The pretentious side of their marketing is another thing.

I also don't believe any "accidents" occurred with prototypes, ect. Just more hype and baiting for the new release, regardless of where / how it was started.

Not all androids are built the same.

There are androids with better specs and build than a iphone.
