Earlier today we reported on what appears to be a prototype white iPhone 4 being auctioned on Ebay, listing at one point at around $3000. The device seemed legit with even the serial number and employee ID visible in the image, which would certainly cause trouble for the developer or whoever got hold of the device in an attempt to off load it. However, checking in now, we see that the listing has been removed. Perhaps, realization set in on what kind of trouble could loom ahead? And why splurge on a possibly buggy prototype when the real deal is only a day away? More early photos of the real thing after the cut.
