iPhone Factory Girl Not Fired

A chinese factory girl whose photos appeared on a brand new iPhone will not be fired, according to a report.

"She is definitely not fired," an unidentified representative from Foxconn's factory in Shenzhen, southern China, told the newspaper Xiandai Kuaibao.

MacRumors forum user markm49uk initially posted finding the photos about a week ago:

The "iPhone girl" has yet to be traced; however, someone has created an English-language Web site,, updated with global media reports on her. The site seems to be down at the moment though.
