In an explosive story, US blog Gizmodo has claimed to have found what is believed to be Apple's next-generation iPhone, already dubbed the iPhone 4G or iPhone HD.

More importantly, it's recently been revealed that Apple has practically admitted to owning the lost iPhone. In a letter to the blog, Apple's senior vice-president Bruce Sewell writes: "It has come to our attention that GIZMODO is currently in possession of a device that belongs to Apple. This letter constitutes a formal request that you return the device to Apple."

The letter seems to confirm that this really is one giant stuff-up and we have actually seen the next-generation iPhone before its expected release in June or July this year.

From the pictures revealed, it's clear that Apple has implemented a number of new features into the new iPhone including a long requested front-facing video camera, a larger regular rear-camera with flash, a higher resolution display, a secondary microphone and a glass-style, flat rear casing. The new iPhone is also thinner than the current iPhone 3GS and has a larger battery, suggesting Apple may have also made improvements to battery life — a sore point with owners of the current iPhone.

Interestingly, Gizmodo also reports that the iPhone 4G uses a microSIM card rather than the regular SIM card used in the current iPhone. For those who don't know, microSIM is a relatively new SIM card format that will also be used in the 3G version of the upcoming iPad, which is set to launch in Australia in late May.

With this explosive news in mind, what do you think of the iPhone 4G? Is a better quality screen and camera enough to entice you? Do you prefer the slimmer, squarer design? Were you expecting a larger screen? What features do you think Apple should have included? Let us know in the comments section below!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
