This is a bit of a confusing one, but we just got tipped an additional shot of this 4th generation iPhone that leaked out in Vietnam, but this time with a big twist: it appears to be running iPhone OS 4. Or at least displaying a screenshot of the new OS, with that telltale wallpaper in the background. We have no idea how this crew might’ve circumvented Apple’s lockdown of the device, and there’s always the chance this is some sort of Photoshop or other trickery. Still, a source has confirmed to us that the markings “N90 PRO2” indicate an older prototype N90 (the Apple codename for the new iPhone), which refers to “Working Prototype 2” and might possibly be easier to enable than the newer, lock tight model Gizmodo obtained. Also, despite the photo’s out-of-focus nature, the display (or at least its contents) doesn’t appear nearly as sharp as those previous shots we saw of the “fireball” screen. We’re digging for more info as we speak, but unfortunately the original source site, Taoviet, is down right now. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything else about this image’s origins.

Apple is building Facebook features into the latest version of its iPhone software, we’re told by a plugged-in source in the mobile industry. These features could be announced during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on June 7, when Apple is expected to unveil a new iPhone.

Our source tells us that Apple is at least going to build Facebook contact syncing directly into the iPhone software, so you can pull Facebook contacts into your iPhone’s phonebook. This is a no-brainer, and is already a feature that some of Apple’s competition offers, so it makes sense to include on the iPhone.

Apple’s announcement of the dates for the 2010 edition of the WorldWide Developers Conference has triggered fresh speculations over the official launch date for the next generation iPhone.

You may recall that Apple has traditionally used the WWDC platform to unveil its new iPhone models though the devices themselves are made available in the stores only a few days later.

This year however, Apple may be looking at an immediate release. Sources close to Mashable have told the website that the next generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone HD, could go on sale as early as June 7 – the opening day of WWDC 2010 when Steve Jobs is expected to unveil the new iPhone model.

It should be obvious by now that Apple is planning on integrating a front-facing camera in its next-generation iPhone. The natural use for such a feature is video conferencing. Apple has had numerous references to the unannounced feature in its past iPhone firmware releases, and iPhone 4 SDK Beta 2 is no different.

Apparently, GeoHot is working on a new tool, called Limera1n. There is no word on “the streets” about the tool, so we don’t know for sure what is this all about. It could be a new jailbreaking/unlocking tool for 3.1.3 , but we tend to think that it will run on OS 4.0 and it will include the iPad as well. RC1 of the tool might be released right after the iPad 3G  launch, followed by RC2, RC3 which will include iPhone 4G ( just a presumption ). That’s all we know at the moment. Keep an eye on limera1n.com . We will keep you updated. Stay tuned…

Apple, Please Fix These Problems Before the New iPhone Comes OutThere’s a lot to be happy about in iPhone OS 4. Like multitasking, and threaded inboxes. So why doesn’t it feel right?

iPhone OS 4 isn’t a drastic overhaul, or a radical reinvention of the iPhone formula; it’s just another predictable step forward. But the little things it delivers in response to popular whims are what feel most awkward and ill-fitting—things like custom wallpapers, folders and even the way it handles multitasking.
