How A Lost Phone In A Bar Gave The IPhone Insurance Industry A Heads Up.

By David T. Hersch

If you are a avid Apple fan and made it a habit of keeping in track what is new in Apple, you may have already heard about the leakage done by the website Gizmodo on the iPhone 4, which was not yet officially released and while Steve Jobs is still planning his presentation on the new iPhone version, Gizmodo has already done their own version of the iPhone 4 unveiling.

But just in case you haven’t heard about it, I’m sure you will be equally stunned when you find out just how did these people from Gizmodo get their hands on this secret prototype from Apple and spoil their grand official launch.

And they didn’t dress themselves up like ninjas in the night and silently entered Apple laboratories just to get this prototype. It was actually found by some one who later on, gave them this unusual looking iPhone. Believe it or not, it was found in a German bar in Redwood City, California.

The story tells us of a Apple engineer who decided to bring the prototype for a field test on his night out with his friends as he celebrated his birthday. Gray Powell has probably done this before, disguising the secret phone to look like a typical iPhone 3GS to avoid attention. But what was different this night was he may have enjoyed himself too much that he forgot to bring home Apple’s prototype iPhone 4. Unfortunately for Gray, it was found by a person who knows people in Gizmodo, where they immediately wrote a blog about it and exposed it to the world via their website.

Soon after this unforeseen and unauthorized introduction, a plethora of comments and reviews stormed the website of Gizmodo and Apple, already making comments of what they feel about the new iPhone and their anticipation for the actual world wide release by Apple.

Naturally, other related companies begin to give attention, particularly the iPhone insurance industry. Every time there is news that Apple will release a new product, they are always designing new policies to answer the insurance needs of the owners.

As news came out of this, companies prepared already designs of a iPhone 4 insurance that will most likely fit this inevitable release. They have positioned iPhone 4 insurance reviews and articles to get a high rank is search engines long before the launch date to be released, and because of this leakage, it game the big players a good head start in capturing the waiting market.

Yes, for Apple is quite sensitive about information leakages, it maybe somewhat of a drawback. But for the iPhone 4 insurance industry, it was break they needed to provide in advance the quality policy end users will need when they start to use this amazing smart phone.
