Yesterday KitGuru released photos of an iPhone 5 engineering sample. The photos got a lot of attention. The iPhone 5 model shown was though actually very unpolished. Not something Apple would be dealing with. My guess is that this engineering sample was from a iPhone case maker. This is what they work with in anticipation of the real deal.
In any case. Today KitGuru posted a not that they took down the photos. Quote "Due to external pressures, which we are unable to detail publicly we felt it necessary to remove this story and all related images."
I do not think that the "external pressure" came from Apple. Do you?

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
