    In Desperate Housewives tonight, Edie Britt is jogging when she gets a call from what looks like a black 1st generation iPod Shuffle in an arm band. I will try to get the video of the 13 second clip on YouTube. In the meantime, you can check out the pictures I've attached.

    No wires, too. Could be Bluetooth enabled! :)

    My question is, if she's talking in to it, I'm assuming she still has earbuds in? BT earbuds, or something? So, uh, how is she hearing someone on the phone with those in? Does the audio go through them to her ears, and if so, why hold the phone to your ear? Wouldn't the earbuds block sound from the phone? Or does the new iPod Phone have earbuds that go... INSIDE YOUR HEAD?

    Couldn't that simply be a Nokia 6030, Moto SLVR or some other black candybar that's roughly nanoish sized?

    What she's holding in her hand looks the size of a regular iPod, since shufflely-sized iPod would be really tiny.

    Who says it's an MP3 player to begin with? I know that people often use MP3 players when they jog, but so far as I can tell it's just a phone on an armband.

    interesting find.
    a bit too vague though for any real analysis.

    I noticed this too while we were watching the show last night. My first thought was that the script called for Edie's (sp?) cell phone to go off while she was jogging and the costume people couldn't figure out where she would be carrying her phone in the skimpy outfits she wears. The chose the shuffle armband because it matched the rest of her outfit.

    When I look at the phone, it seems to me that it is way too big to actually fit in the armband. I suspect they used black velcro on the armband and the phone to make it work.

    My opinion is that they simply had a shuffle armband close at hand and decided to use that as part of her costume. At most, this sighting just indicates how ubiquitous the iPod has become when you see accessories show up being reused for props and costumes on a major TV show.

    It looks like a Motorola SLVR to me...

    or it could also be a Sony Ericsson w810i

    maybe it's not even a phone at all. she could just be ACTING.

    I was going to say that.

    There's no reason she's not just talking at her iPod...
