Claims of black iphone back just being a 3rd party case are premature?!?!?

    I mentioned this in the comments on the page 2 story about more leaked 'black 3g iphone' pics, but I thought it was worth a mention here as well.

    The gizmodo story claiming it was just a case (http://gizmodo.com/384356/glossy-black-iphone-3g-is-just-a-third+party-case) links to this story as it's source... http://www.winandmac.com/news/3g-iphone-appeared-in-hong-kongnot-really/

    That links to the original supplier of the 'case', which still has the part, but now it's described as 'iPhone 8GB Rear Panel (3G)'.

    Here's that link...http://www.appleowner.com/goods.php?id=156

    If nothing else, I think we can say that gizmodo appears to have jumped the rumor smashing gun, but this place does sell spare mac parts, so it's very possible it's real...

    Honestly, I have no idea. Either way, gizmodo's claims that it's nothing but a case for the phone seem a little misguided though, since their source's source isn't saying anything about it being a case. Whether or not these folks have the case, I am starting to seriously believe that it will be the design..
