Device makers getting hands-on time with iPhone in Cupertino

According to device manufacturers who wish to remain anonymous, Apple is providing hands-on time with production iPhone units at its Cupertino headquarters in advance of the June 29th launch. Though some accessory makers have made the dubious claim that they've obtained pre-production units for testing, sources strongly back the existence of intra-Apple testing sessions.

Meanwhile, some accessory manufacturers are having difficulty getting any access to the iPhone. A MarketWatch article quotes a spokeswoman for Griffin Technology thusly "While we've been in communication with [Apple], we haven't had a unit, so we've been at times blindly going at it."
