The 1,457,119,764,001st online article about the iPhone

Boing Boing has before and after iPhone hand models. The newer hand is, one would assume, to make the iPhone look smaller.

That's not what I'm interested in (I already know the dimensions of the iPhone are about those of a 30 gig 5G iPod). Instead, I'm wondering who that hand model was who got to fondle that sweet piece of hardware weeks in advance of it being announced.

Or did he?

Do you think Apple would entrust the knowledge of such a top-secret product to a hand model? Or do you think the guy got called in, held a piece of plastic the same dimensions as the iPhone and they Photoshopped the actual device in later? I'm interested to hear your point of view in the comments.
