10 things to love about the story of the iPhone 5 that walked out of a tequila lounge กันยายน 4, 2011

The tech press is never happier than when it’s in hot pursuit of the next Apple (AAPL) iPhone. Almost any clue will do — a purloined case design, a blurry factory photo, a leaked production estimate from a sketchy Asian news source.

That’s what made last year’s saga of the prototype iPhone 4 — lost in a bar and sold to a Gizmodo editor whose house was raided and his computers seized — so irresistible.

The story of the iPhone 5 that broke this week hasn’t got those kind of legs, but it’s not without its charms.

My favorite details:

 

1. Cava22. The San Francisco tequila lounge where the device was lost serves a mean lime-marinated shrimp ceviche. (CNET)
2. The booze. The owner of the bar told CNET: “I guess I have to make my drinks a little less strong.”
3. Find-My-iPhone. It worked, to a degree. Apple traced the missing device to a two-story house in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood (CNET) that turned out to be in Ingleside (SFWeekly)
4. “Priceless” That’s what Apple gave the San Francisco Police Department as the value of the missing item (CNET)
5. The cops. The cash-strapped SFPD thought the incident of sufficient importance to assign four plainclothes officers to the case. (SFWeekly)
6. The search. The owner of the house — one Sergio Calderón, 22 — allowed his home to be thoroughly tossed without asking for a search warrant or to see some identification. (SFWeekly)
7. The potted plants.
 The real police waited politely outside while two Apple security guys conducted the search, offered Calderón a $300 reward, made vague threats about illegal aliens, and left a business card that could be traced back to Apple (SFWeekly)
8. The hard guy
. The LinkedIn page (since removed) of Anthony “Tony” Colon — the Apple detective who led the search — listed his specialties as threat assessment, counter terrorism, executive protection and site security surveys. (SF Weekly)
9. The subterfuge. The SFPD was able to keep the department out of the story — at least for a few hours — by telling the press that it had no report any search or even of a missing device. (Business Insider)
10. Call central casting. The name of the police lieutenant who finally owned up to the SFPD’s role in the matter — admitting that at Apple’s request no crime report was filed — was Troy Dangerfield. (SFWeekly)

You couldn’t make this stuff up.

And what happened to the missing iPhone? Is it still at large? Did Tony Colon manage to track it down? Apple, not surprisingly, isn’t saying.

iPhone 5 to Launch in New Zealand on October 9th?

New Zealand’s TechDay.co.nz claims to have exclusive date on the New Zealand launch date for the iPhone 5.

Now, with fans clamouring for news of the iPhone 5, Techday has learned from a source within Apple that the device will be launched here in New Zealand on October 9.

Early October has been the recent rumor consensus on when the iPhone 5 might actually become available to customers. There has also been talk of a late September launch.

TechDay.co.nz hasn’t been the source of any previous Apple rumors, so we can’t tell if they are trustworthy. October 9th falls on a Sunday, which seems a strange launch day. Last year’s iPhone 4 launch was on a Friday in New Zealand. We’ve posted it on our iOS blog for interest.

It was announced today at a New York City press event hosted by Samsung that AT&T would join T-Mobile and Samsung in offering the highly-anticipated Galaxy S II smartphone. The device will largely mirror the international version of the phone, which debuted last sprint. It sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, and an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video capture. The phone is compatible with AT&T’s HSPA+ network.

While a naming scheme similar to that used for the Samsung Captivate was not announced (the AT&T S II has been rumored to go under the name Attain), it is still possible we will learn of a new carrier branding closer to launch. For now, the device is merely listed as coming in the next few weeks. Pricing details are not known at this time.

Sprint schedules Oct. 7 event amid iPhone rumors สิงหาคม 30, 2011

Sprint has scheduled a “Strategy Update” presentation for Friday, Oct. 7, around the same time the carrier is rumored to begin offering Apple’s iPhone.

Earlier this month The Wall Street Journal claimed that Sprint will join AT&T and Verizon in introducing a new iPhone in mid-October. Currently, the iPhone is only available to Verizon and AT&T customers in the U.S.

Sprint this week sent out invitations to members of the press advertising an event dubbed “Sprint’s Strategy Update.” It will feature presentations by senior management at the carrier, along with a Q&A session.

This is my next suggested the event is “likely” to be about the carrier’s high-speed 4G network plans, but also said that “maybe” the presentation could also be related to the next iPhone.

“We’d be surprised if this was the event to announce it, but the past month of tech news has been crazy enough that anything could happen,” they wrote.

While new iPhone models have typically been introduced at Apple events, a CDMA variant of the iPhone 4 compatible with Verizon’s network was unveiled this January at an event hosted in New York City by Verizon, not Apple. But that was a unique situation for an out-of-cycle upgrade that arrived months after the iPhone 4 debuted on AT&T’s network.

Sprint

Apple is expected to introduce its new fifth-generation iPhone this fall, with the latest rumors pointing toward a mid-October launch. Some reports have suggested the next iPhone will be a “world phone” capable of connecting to both GSM networks, like AT&T, as well as CDMA, like Verizon and Sprint, without the need for two separate models.

This past weekend, a leaked memo from Sprint revealed that employees of the carrier have been instructed to simply state “no comment” when they are asked about the iPhone. Employees have been told to say they are familiar with news reports suggesting the iPhone is coming to Sprint, but to say they don’t have any information to share.
