Does Apple have a less capable iPhone 4G in the works?

26May10

Now I take all analyst reports with a pinch of salt but this is too interesting to ignore.

Last month Gizmodo got hold of a prototype iPhone 4G and promptly plastered pictures of it all over the internet.

This device had an internal name of N90, however, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of DigiTimes claims he has sources inside Apple that talk of an N91. This is a lesser spec device “…which offers less change from previous iPhones compared with the N90. It’s a parallel product to back up the N90 in case there are major delays due to significant modifications in casing, display resolution, digital camera support and so forth.”

I really hope that Apple don’t intend to use the N91 at this stage, it would be suicide. They have already used their incremental get out of jail free card with the iPhone 3GS last year. Everyone now expects to see the Gizmodo leaked N90 so if something without high res display and front facing camera comes out this is not going to be pretty in the tech press.
