ABC News:Mystery 'iPhone Girl' Generates Internet Intrigue

By MIN LEE Associated Press Writer HONG KONG August 27, 2008 (AP)
Who is the "iPhone Girl"?
Pictures of an Asian factory worker found on a new iPhone sold to a British customer have generated keen discussion on the Internet about her identity — and her fate.
The three pictures, posted on the Apple discussion Web site, show a young Asian woman working on what appears to be an assembly line for iPhones.
Dressed in a pink striped outfit and hat and wearing white gloves with yellow fingertips, the young woman now known on the Web as the "iPhone Girl" is shown smiling and making victory signs as she poses next to an iPhone.
The user who posted the photos last week, identified as only "markm49uk" from Kingston-upon-Hull, England, said in a posting that one of the pictures showed up on a new 3G iPhone when the iTunes program was launched.
News reports say the woman may work at a factory run by an Apple contractor, Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology Group, in the southern Chinese boomtown of Shenzhen.
Calls to Foxconn spokesman Edmund Ding went unanswered Wednesday. Ding also didn't immediately respond to an e-mail from The Associated Press seeking comment.
But the South China Morning Post on Wednesday quoted another Foxconn spokesman, Liu Kun, as confirming that the young woman in the pictures works for Foxconn.
Liu said workers testing the device took the pictures and may have forgotten to delete them, the Post reported.
Dubbing the mystery worker "China's prettiest factory girl," China's Southern Metropolitan Daily on Tuesday quoted an unidentified Foxconn official as saying the woman was not fired.
Apple publicist Jill Tan said the company had no comment.

Mystery 'iPhone Girl' On Her Way To Meme Status(CRN)

Read the article from CRN:
It's an unremarkable image on its face, but a photo of a young female worker at an Apple iPhone factory in southern China is well on its way to becoming an Internet "meme," or a viral idea that is rapidly and broadly propagated online. Internet memes can be a lot of fun for those spreading them. When actual people are at the center of them, like the "iPhone Girl," as she's come to be called, sometimes not so much. In this case, a young worker at Apple contractor Foxconn Technology Group's factory in Shenzhen, China apparently forgot to delete some pictures of herself that she had snapped on an iPhone she was testing. That iPhone ended up in the hands of a bemused British man who posted the pictures last week on the Web site visitors latched on to one of the pictures, which shows the smiling young woman making "peace" or "victory" signs at her station on the factory line, competing with each other to discover more details about the woman in the photo and spreading it to other Web sites.
The iPhone Girl meme has picked up steam quickly. As of Thursday morning, there are nearly 250 news stories about her on Google News' main Sci/Tech cluster for iPhone Girl-related articles.
Time will tell if iPhone Girl has the virility of overnight Internet sensations like Chris Crocker of "Leave Britney Alone" fame, much less the staying power of famous ongoing memes like "LOLcats" or "rickrolling".
What iPhone Girl has in common with such memes is that it emerged from a Web community,, devoted in part to creating such viral phenomena over the Internet (or "Intertubes" to reference another meme that began following the spread of a quote by Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) describing the Internet as "a series of tubes").
Crocker's fame came on, which heavily promotes its "most viewed" videos. LOLcats and rickrolling emerged from the 4chan imageboard site, where meme-creation is arguably the main purpose of contributors.
4chan, of course, is also home to meme-creation of a sort very different than cutesy LOLcats or harmless rickrolling trickery. The site's random board, known as "/b/", regularly produces sociopathic mob assaults on grieving families and children.
So far, iPhone Girl, the woman not the meme, is reportedly "scared" by the media attention she's been receiving.
"She's really scared by the media. She told me she wanted to quit her job and go back home to get away from this. We let her off work today so she could rest," a Foxconn spokesperson said, according to the Washington Post.
Not a good sign for people who care about the human beings in the middle of some memes.

Smiling iPhone Girl is definitely not fired

In an article published by the English Chinese paper, China Daily a Foxconn spokesperson confirms that The “iPhone Girl” is “definitely not fired”. Let's read the article:
“She might have done nothing more than flashed a smile to her colleague testing an iPhone’s camera on a Chinese production line. But it seems the colleague forgot to delete her photos, and now worldwide iPhone fans are gearing up to locate her.
The “iPhone girl” frenzy began last week when the girl’s photos appeared on, a popular forum for fans of Apple products.
The photos show a round-faced Chinese girl dressed in pink, striped uniform, smiling and making a “V for Victory” gesture in what seems like an assembly line.
Many forum users commented that they found the girl “really cute, vivid, energetic, smile like sunshine a typical chinese girl". She loves and enjoys her job. Maybe iphone can really make this girl to be celebrity. I think that it is always better than chosing some model or star.Whatever, her life is changing now because of her little misplay. I am not sure it is a good or bad thing for her.
Other people worry that “she is so fired” because of the incident.
“She is definitely not fired,” an unidentified representative from Foxconn’s factory in Shenzhen, southern China, told the newspaper Xiandai Kuaibao.
The factory assembles most of Apple’s iPhones and iPods, the newspaper says.
The representative confirmed that the “iPhone girl” was one of its employees but declined to give details.
He said it was likely that the test photos were left in the phone’s memory “accidentally.” The company is investigating the incident.
Though the “iPhone girl” is yet to be traced, her popularity continues to grow. Someone has even created an English-language Web site,, updated with global media reports on her.”

Not sure if this is or is not the 'norm' but I just received my brand new iPhone here in the UK and once it had been activated on iTunes I found that the home screen (the screen you can personalise with a photo) already had a photo set against it !!!!
