Not the real Deal.

This is a brilliant fake (I'm assuming for a number of reasons). The portrayal of the advertisement makes it definitely seem authentic, but why would there be ads already printed for something that is only to be announced, and not actually released for quite some time.

Aside from that, that jog-wheel is far to small to handle, and still be the conception of the brilliant industrial design team at Apple. Furthermore, the bottom half of this phone is taken from a Sony Ericsson phone.

SWEET PHONE!!!

edit: When I posted this remark the original post was completely empty. Now that the picture is up, it looks real. Rumors have said, though, that Apple is partnering with Motorola for a phone. This could be old, or maybe the rumors are wrong, and Apple is partneriny with Sony :eek:. It looks like someone just took the bottom of a sony ericsson phone and stuck it with an Apple top. Hopefully Apple will do more than this...

Took, a while to load, nice fake, not new iphone maybe old though, the font used isn't apple myriad, but old font.

Edit: if you read closely under the something borrowed title, it says something about using sony ericson technology, this is either a clever old fake, or old marketing for an iPhone that almost made it, but didn't.

Isn't that the old iCreate magazine image? In which case, it's just a mock up of what the magazine thinks an iPhone might look like in each issue they create an image of a different dream Apple product. If memory serves, it's quite an old image... and they're using the old Garamond typeface, not the new Myriad that Apple now uses on all its stuff.

Of course, I may be mistaken...

I think apple would have the most success if they were able to seamlessly put together a phone and the ipod, so that they were both fully functional - this would lead people who wanted both to buy the phone, because it would have the same functionality as the iPod.

It may be fake, but it does show how simple an Apple Cell Phone could be. Also, how simple it could be to make one yourself.

I don't really believe that it will look like this but i do think it will be able to work with all the iApps, and might be brush metal. Enjoy !

The one apple is making with motorolla is gonna be just a regular motorolla and have itunes capabilities though, I thought.

Great mock-up. Maybe Steve is open to the idea of a phone/PDA instead of just a PDA. Remember, "let every part be its own."

Looks kinda neat, but IMO too much like a PocketPC. Apple wouldn't do that.

I'd say neat looking mock up, but thats about it. Again, thats IMHO.

Well come too think about it, why would apple not make a "Pocket Mac" Newton meets OS X. This would be the perfect solution to the PDA world, a handheld that works with a mac and has perfect isync abilities.
