Lost iPhone HD Prototype Found at a San Jose Bar, California?

Engadget has got hold of a prototype model, which according to them is “very much” the next-gen iPhone that Apple is expected to release in June of this year. This prototype model was found in an iPhone 3G case, at a bar in San Jose, California.

While they aren’t exactly sure on whether this is the prototype, or a real production model, what they have found was that the model had a front facing camera for video conferencing, 80GB of flash storage (which kind of strange), and that it was said to be running on the latest iPhone OS 4 (though it wasn’t booting at the time they saw it).
