SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The New Jersey teenager who hacked into the iPhone is trading it for a new car.
Seventeen-year-old George Hotz reworked his iPhone so that it can be used with cellular networks other than AT&T. He posted on his blog that he traded the modified gadget for "a sweet Nissan 350Z" and three new iPhones.
Hotz made the deal with the co-founder of CertiCell, who also promised the teen a paid consulting job.
The three iPhones will be sent to the online collaborators who helped Hotz with the hacking job.
He calls it "a great end to a great summer."
