I dunno, sorta reminds me of an XBOX, with the black and green. Doesn't look too "Apple", IMO.

Well, let's not forget that its a Motorola phone, not an iPod. I'm sure Apple would prefer to get their software into a phone as opposed to making sure that it's white. I would suggest that Motorola would have more say into the look considering that they manufacture/design the phone.

Who knows if this is the phone ... we should know in a few days

In the MacWorld SF Keynote, Steve showed what the phone would look like. It does sorta look like that, but it has white buttons on the bottom half of the phone. The screen does look similar though.

Not sure if that's the same phone because he said it would be released in the Spring.

I agree looks very unlike apple. All apples products are mostly gray or white... ;)

Remember people, it's not an Apple product, it's a Motorola product. So it may not look like an Apple product.

But there's no way THAT is what it'll look like. I'll eat crow.

It looks like MS made their xbox team develop a cell phone. This definitely wasn't what I was expecting. I really don't think Apple would go with the green scroll wheel :eek:

edit: oops looks like a few other people have had the same idea :eek:

Every rumour I've seen so far that I believed has said the phone will be silver.

Also the icon that was leaked from 4.9 didn't look very black to me...

I recon Steve wouldn't want mobile iTunes running on something this ugly, but then again it does look Motorola.

Fake? More than likely =]
