I have a close friend working under Sam Mendes for the giant James Bond film coming out: Skyfall. He says that the iPhone 5 will definitely feature throughout the film.
Cannot wait!

I wonder if they'll actually unveil the iPhone. I'll have to ask him that!

----------

Can you ask your friend which bad ass car is he driving? Because I didnt see any good car in the internatiinal trailer other than the land rover!
Yes I will do that:) In fact I think the Aston 77 may feature.

So the phone the whole tech world has been speculating on and would kill to have confirmed photos of is being used on the set of one of the biggest films of the year with easily 20-30 people on set all the time? Yeah right!

Nope. It's completely possible. See, they used my time machine to go into the future during filming, so it was already designed, manufactured, and mass-produced.

They also used one of the mind-wiper thingies from Men in Black.

No biggie.

Completely plausible.

Well you got me on that one :)

I was just about to say, a movie that probably already in post production is going to feature a phone that is just now going into production (suspected to at least).

Actually, I have a buddy who works over at MI6. Apparently all the "licensed to kill" agents get special access to the latest pre-release consumer electronics. They're supposed to keep *very* quiet about it, of course, but sometimes details do leak out.

My buddy tells me the iPhone 5 is pretty great, but he actually prefers the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Yeah, but didn't you hear? Sony was asked to design an iPhone prototype.

Yep, very true. I love the 3d GPS on his little not-so-smart phone in Casino Royale.

Makes no sense - the franchise is produced by Columbia Pictures, which is owned by Sony. Sony products are featured throughout all of the modern Bond films (including Sony phones), and I doubt Skyfall would be the exception.
