The 3GS’s Actual FCC ID Matches the One on Those Matte-Finish Rumor Photos

Interesting find by Cabel Sasser: Remember the photos from the last few months purporting to show a new iPhone with a rubbery matte finish? The actual 3GS doesn’t look like that, but, the FCC device number visible on those photos is in fact the FCC device number of the 3GS.

So were they an abandoned design? Or a trap planted to identify leakers?
