Anyone Lost a Phone in San Francisco?

By Gary Cutlack on at

Someone's found an unreleased prototype phone in a bar again. This one's quite easy to identify, as it's covered in stickers and serial numbers and looks to have half its hardware features removed.

The handset appears to have been remotely wiped by its maker so there's nothing to be learned from booting it up. What we can see it that it's clearly an HTC model, as the earpiece has that classic HTC style to it, plus the battery's non-removable -- as it is within the new HTC One X.

What we can also learn from this is how boring and generic modern phones look when they're not beaming out a bright and cheery OS. [Droid-Life]
