Tons of 3G iPhones

ImportGenius has found evidence that Apple has imported 188 ocean containers worth of unspecified electronics from its key Taiwanese suppliers, Hon Hai and Quanta. The assumption is that these are 3G iPhones being announced on June 9 (although presumably another product could also be in these containers).

Forbes has a summary of the other evidence, including increased mileage by Steve Jobs on his Gulfstream V.

The scrutiny and speculation seem almost funny: Apple gets all this free advance publicity, just by saying it doesn’t want advance publicity. As in 2007, the 3G iPhone shows that Apple still is the tech industry leader in PR efficiency.
