We know there is one missing iPhone4G/HD in the wild.  It is the one the guy in China lost who then subsequently jumped (still being investigated) from his apartment building.  He ‘misplaced it’ when mailing it to Apple.  We’re wondering if the one that Engadget and Gizmodo posted is that very same device.  DF notes that Apple considers this device ‘stolen’.

On the other hand, the story is that the iPhone was originally servicable but Apple just disabled it.  I suppose we’ll know more soon. 

What do you think?
