Wired reports that 21-year old Brian Hogan (pictured above) is the person who found the iPhone 4G that has been causing the recent stir, because he eventually sold it to Gizmodo for a review.

CNET reports that a middleman, Sage Robert Wallower, a 27-year-old University of California at Berkeley student, contacted technology sites to try to sell the device.  Eventually Gizmodo bought it for $5000 and published a number of images and videos of the device.

Both are cooperating in the ongoing investigations into the matter.
