Another possible iPhone 4G prototype surfaces

A Vietnamese businessman reportedly purchased an iPhone 4G while on a trip to the U.S.

Just as Apple is trying to put the whole Gizmodo ordeal behind it, another iPhone 4G prototype has reportedly shown up on the Internet.

The latest pictures and video of an iPhone 4G come via Vietnamese Web site Taoviet. According to MacRumors, the teardown pictures of the iPhone include the "N90" moniker, which is thought to be the internal code name for the next iPhone.

The MacRumors report states that a Vietnamese businessman bought the iPhone 4G in the U.S. when he was purchasing an iPad. Obviously, the unreleased iPhone cannot be purchased in a store, but MacRumors had no other details about where he got it or how much he paid.

Gadget blog Engadget claims that if a translation in its comments section is true, the man paid $4,000 for the device.
