    Im glad it is fake. I think that is pretty ugily-bugilly. I could live with that if it was a really cool device though.

    I think this iPhone is a dumb idea. They should concentrate on something cool, that everyone would like. My suggestion is iMidget. You get your very own midget to help you with your mac. The midget will not only be able to help you with your day to day work, but if you have an AppleCare plan, the midget will be able to assist you with all of your problems.

    I think I know why Apple will continue to SUPPORT phones and MAKE one. And I'm sort of suprised no one has brought this up.

    Remember back to iPhoto? Apple listed all these compatible cameras, but there were few rumors about Apple developing a camera. Have we seen one yet?

    This iPhone sh*t is exactly the same thing. Apple creates an iApp so that you can transfer files back and forth to and from certain phones. I'm sure that the list will continue to grow. But I don't think you will see Apple developing a phone, much less, a camera.

    Plain and simple: Apple didn't make a camera for iPhoto, and they won't make a phone for iSync. Period.

    If apple really did make an iPhone, it would be either chrome-ish silver (Pro-Line), or White and chrome (Consumer-Line). Graphite is dead and has been since quicksilver.

    I like the colors, but it should have a more futuristic shape. ;)

    I couldn't disagree with you anymore. Take the ipod's success as an example of I-tool devices. The same would happen with an apple camera or phone. If apple was to create these two with the same easy of use, great design and innovating features. All these features are already available in jaguar and they are capable of bringing the best camera or cell phone outhere. Just as they have created the best MP3 player. Nobody is 100% sure this devices will be produced but their success is already a given. This success at the end translates into profit for apple. So they should for sure go ahead and bring those devices to consumers. I can see a future apple devices compatible with apple and windows selling in best buy and other big electronic stores.

    In all actuality the cell phone is the most popular digital device out there, so that makes it a viable market for Apple. And as much as Apple innovatives I think they could do really good in this market. ;)

    GO APPLE!!! :D

    And even if it was real, the apple logo wouldn't be sideways like that with the screen at a 90 degree angle.

    If they weren't going to make a phone then why did they register the domainname?

    Did anyone happen to notice that in that shot, the Palm OS Date Book is being displayed backwards?
