Apple: We want our iPhone back

Apple has formally request the return of the iPhone that Gizmodo acquired. It's real, mystery solved.
Written by Jason D. O'Grady, Contributor on

Gizmodo received a phone call today from Apple (rumor is that El Jobso called personally) requesting its prototype iPhone "device" back. Editorial Director Brian Lam laid down the terms: "all they have to do to get it back is to claim it—on record."

Apple Senior VP and General Counsel Bruce Sewell complied, sending a concise and terse letter to Gizmodo which reads:

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. Please let me know where to pick up the unit.

Anyone still think that it was a controlled leak from Apple or some elaborate PR stunt? Anyone want to be that the Giz is off Apple's Christmas card list?
