    It's not on the page anymore...either it was pulled within seconds or the OP is having us on.

    50 and 80 GB doesn't sound logical to me...given known platter sizes, I'd expect a single platter 40 GB and a double platter 80 GB model.

    the word "full" looks strange.. it doesn't fit with the rest of the text; it looks like it stands out.

    but it could just be me; I woke up about a half hour ago.

    It sucks that we're going to have to wait so long to find out the truth.

    Oh, wait. Even if Gizmodo's wrong, we've only got a half day to go....

    Fake.

    Full is capitalized where it doesn't make sense, and the remote description doesn't reference the "Full screen iPod".

    plus, calling it a fullscreen iPod seems stupid... it IS a full screen iPod. lol. What is a half screen?

    the wording is hokey.

    It looks real to me, but I find those HDD sizes odd.

    I guess we'll find out tomorrow! :D

    EDIT: After reading it closely, I'm starting to doubt that it's real. There is an extra period in the sentence, "Compatible with iPod with full sized display. (50GB, 80GB)."

    Agree. It is strange.

    A possibility. Maybe they are using different vendors.

    I like the full size display description. That's sounds great.

    Guess we'll know soon.

    The "F" on "Full" doesn't have that kind of fuzz around it like the other normal letters. BS! :rolleyes:

    Hey guys...look what I just spotted on Apple NZ...

    Picture 1.png

    Sorry...the OP may have actually seen something, but there are a number of things that call the legitimacy into question. And when it's as easy as this to create a fake, I'll hold out for the real deal.

    The "50GB, 80GB" text is positioned higher than the other ones that say "60GB". That seems kind of odd too..

    I'm usually a skeptic, but I'm going to say this looks legit.

    Can someone give a description of what was actually on the page before it was taken down?
