Leaked iPod Phone Picture... Real?

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
It's making the rounds now, so I thought I'd grab it quickly, save to my online album thingy and dump it here.

Looks like it was taken by some low-quality mobile phone cam... looks a bit warped and stuff.

That's a bad Photoshop job covered up with copius blur. The screen perspective is out of proportion with the hardware, as is the relative blur of the on-screen images vs. the overall picture.

Big time fake.

Oddly enough, however, I do consider this to be the closest I've seen to what Apple is likely to deliver.

Looks like a phony mock-up. The screen looks like paper.

Here is the easy way of doing things
  1. Any "Leaked" Image is a Fake
  2. Don't expect the iPhone (at least not here) and you won't be disappointed

Chicago for the keypad font? I don't think so.

Sexy form factor, tho.

I don' t think that you will see a "virtual" keypad. Apple knows that most people dont actually look at a remote or keyboard, or even a keypad most of the time, relying on our tactile senses to enter the data. They gave the iPod a way to do this and kept it around for the Remote. A phone needs a real keypad for the same reason.

Looks a bit like a mod based on this phone.

Apple's patents do refer to a touch screen. But there might be send/talk type buttons as well. The LG phone linked in the post above (if true) might as well be the Apple phone.

There is absolutely no truth to this image as it was not taken in an elevator.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

That's exactly what I was oging to say. I saw that and saw the exact same phone. It looks like it could even be the exact same picture, rotated a bit, modified and blur.

Edit: I believe that IS the exact same picture, cropped and modified. It has the red light in the background, and the guys hands are in the EXACT SAME POSITION!

I think it looks like a photoshop mockup of a cross between a Newton and a Sony Reader.

lol, phony mockup... pun intended?

But yes - definitely a fake.
post #17 of 48
Yep! that's right, you heard it here first. Apple couldn't call it the iPhone, iMobile seems just a little to naff, iP is too much like the Wii. Conclusion, we're all gonna buy Apple Pi phones!

This little nugget was insider information, trust me, Apple Pi is going to be tasty.

well the perspective is way off, but also the phone is in the wrong position; it is being used in the horozontal manor but is displayed verically, check out the video chat

Yeah, it would be very un-Apple to not display the phone in the horizontal position with the multi-way chat. Even if one would normally hold the phone in a vertical position.

With just over a day to go, I'd like to confess up and say that was a pretty dodgy fake I made. But it got this thread 1000+ views, so I am happy. Thanks for playing.

Feel free to say "you suck" "your photoshop skillz suck ass" and whatever. Bite my ass.

Nice of you to 'fess up, Sunilraman, but what was the point? Views? I always wanted to know why anyone would try to peddle a fake as real so any light you can shed would be appreciated. When I make a mockup of something, I label it as such. When I posted that rumor a year ago about the Apple TV, I was just passing on what I was told by a guy who wrote for major Mac sites.

I blame it on "Temporary Insanity"
I guess also like a social experiment.
I haven't really done hoaxes before.

Probably 'nuff said with "Temporary Insanity."

Apple really has everything clamped down tight. We can't seem to get a whiff of what will really be announced except for that Amazon slip. I'd really like to have a clue since I'm a stockholder. I fear that if the phone isn't announced, the stock will go down somewhat for a few months. False rumors give false hope, thus driving poor blokes like me totally nuts.

Amazon didn't slip, they were just waiting for Tuesday to come and stuck the 2 things everyone knows is coming on there.

Lol when I first saw it then saw that you posted I questioned it's validity right away! That's awesome, we should all make mockups and through people for loops! Create chaos before macworld

If you know anything about how Steve relies on the Delphi Method, you may trust (as I do) that there will be some sort of phone-type device that Steve will give us consumers.

Any Joe Schmoe can write up any sort of product detail page that they want. I think this is hilarious that everyone thinks that these Amazon pages confirm a soon-approaching release.

Here, I'll prove it. give me a name of any product and I'll make sure it is going to be released "very soon". Doesn't even have to be real.


Wait! Here, just try it for yourself. Here is the link to make the page:
