    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why Engadget didn't get an iPhone 4S to review?

    They'll probably have one on Friday, that would be my guess.

    Apple probably blackballed them after the whole iPhone 4 leaked episode...

    My guess is they did and just haven't finished reviewing it yet

    I think there's some confusion between engadget and gizmodo here...

    Engadget didn't leak the iPhone and they were at the Apple event. They're not blacklisted. Gizmodo is who you are thinking of.

    Yeah, gizmodo "stole" the phone and got banned from apple events, not Engadget.

    I was wondering the same thing, did a google search, and found this thread :)

    Something is definitely up because they're usually one of the first to have iPhone reviews posted.

    I did notice, however, that ThisIsMyNext/The Verge had their review up -- that's where Josh Topolsky, Nilay Patel and crew went.

    They don't give Apple the same treatment that other tech sites do. AllThingsD, TIMN, etc got early iPhones because they usually favorably review Apple stuff and cover Apple news extensively. The new editors at Engadget are strongly pro-Android and write many more Android articles than Apple articles now.

    No, Engadget does not have a review unit. They directly stated in the iOS 5 review (released today) that they could not comment on Siri because they wouldn't have a 4S until Friday.

    I just thought maybe their embargo hadn't passed yet.

    Normally BGR gets a review unit too. He is VERY favourable towards Apple so if it's down to that I would have thought he'd have one.

    Wade into the comments section of ANY Apple article though, and you'll see people bitching that Engadget doesn't care about any other platform but Apple. Hilarious.
