I'm going with "fake". Look at the buttons on the front. Unlabelled and with a circle cut right through them for the "wheel"? Ok, maybe unlabelled because it's a prototype, but the buttons and the scrollwheel being the same surface just seems odd.

If that is the phone, I imagine that the bottom part (where the scroll wheel is) is the flip for the phone.

You open that up to talk on the phone, and close it operate it like an iPod.

AppleInsider is reporting that this is the phone.

No, this is the iTunes phone. Check out this Easter Egg in iTunes 4.9. Open iTunes preferences, then open display preferences and switch to 256 colors. Now check out the podcast tab in itunes preferences. ;)

I wonder if that is a phone. We're still waiting to see what the "Jam Box" thing is, and the description was a lot more ambitious than the Asteroid box that turned up a few months ago.

Its a phone thing for sure. Other info treats the new phones like a shuffle for loading purposes...

Now, I wonder if Apple will have this thing out in large supply quickly rather than suffer the fate of the ipod mini and shuffle which took forever to get to decent supply levels.

I'm referring to the podcasting icon, though. Apple haven't really integrated podcasts with Shuffle-style loading. It would make more sense to show there a device that was useful for making a podcast, and a phone would be kind of iffy for that.

What, and pass up a chance for the press to tell how people are buying up the latest Apple toy faster than they can make them? Apple can't buy advertising that good :D
