    I don't usually make threads like this, but I have to know (I don't have Tivo), did anyone else out there see an iPhone in that CIA agent's hand on the TV show 24 at about 9:30pm PST?

    Maybe I'm seeing things, but I swear I saw that single button on the bottom, as well as the all black body with the huge touch screen.

    I realize that it's very, very unlikely that Apple would put their product out there before launch like this, but who knows.

    So, did I see an iPhone, or do I need a new glasses prescription?

    Nope, it did not look that square. It had those rounded corners just like the iPhone.

    And yes, I've heard of the LG Prada. I'm not that, um, abstract. :rolleyes:

    i thought the same but if you look at it again-its a Dell PDA-i saw the Dell logo and text on it

    EDIT-i was thinking of a different scene with a different device-i actually didnt even notice this one

    but i too agree that it is outrageously unlikley that it is

    Considering that these episodes were filmed in the summer there is no way that Apple would chance it. Plus I don't even think Apple would be ready to even display a prototype then.

    maybe apple let them use one of the fakes. People are seeing iPhones all the time now ... I remember when Casino Royale had a white SE phone and everyone was convinced.

    That's a really good point.

    Does anyone have Tivo? I may buy this episode on iTunes just to see.

    Yes it is....so unless Apple is allowing Dell to do some of the production on iPhone, i'm gonna lean towards no....

    I bet the next series of Spooks in the UK will feature the iPhone heavily given it's past use of all things macular.

    Thanks! That settles that. I appreciate you helping us settle this. In passing, it looked a lot like an iPhone on the show.:)

    For some reason I actually thought these threads would stop once the official iPhone was announced. :D

    It's a Dell Axim X51, yeah? I know, I too thought "iPhone?!?!?!" when I first glimpsed it in the show, but alas.
