Hi all,

some of you may have heard of Justin Bieber, he's the kid that Usher found on youtube and signed him to his label.

Anyway, in his music video, he has an iPhone which appears to have an LED to the left of the speaker, which lights up as he answers the phone.

I can only assume it is a genuine iPhone 3G/3GS and the camera has picked up the infra-red from the proximity sensor. Or could it be the next gen iPhone???

It's probably nothing, here's the link

It's neither. It's a music video. It's probably a faked effect for extra flashiness because the teenyboppers who would watch that garbage love things that light up.

That kid is in for a world of hurt when he actually gets some hair on his sack and that nice high pitch chick voice starts to change. How many new tracks has Billy Gilman put out lately?

His career and fame are going to be short-lived. Puberty is going to hit him like a train. Your voice can't afford to squeak when singing.

Nope, she is very much still on the earth. I took my daughter to her concert here in London back in December. She has another movie coming out in the spring as well.

Good God, you are fools! I don't think his target audience consists of the nerds on MacRumors.com. Let the kid enjoy the success he's having now. It blows my mind the jealousy that'll come from people when they see someone so much younger than them have a lot of success.

I think the video was edited to show the flash. I've never seen a 3GS' proximity sensor flash white like that. Any link to a video that shows it?

Im not jealous at all, he can have his fame & fortune.

But, please, for the love of god, dont make noise and call it 'music'.

Well since I just Wikipedia'd the kid and he's almost 16 you'd hope his voice had broken by now . . .

Since that iPhone's on 2.x.x at least then I doubt it's a new iPhone model. Just a flash/reflection/the sensor etc

Open photobooth, make a phone call, hold phone up to camera and you can see the light, it only shows up on camera as is an infrared light so can't be seen normally by human eye.

This is a guy? Seriously? That can't be a boy.
My chihuahua has a deeper bark that this girl does.

Oh....and this is what they call music now? I didn't hear one instrument in the entire thing. All I heard was girl singing, and computer generated tones.

Thanks for letting me know who this Justin guy/girl is. :rolleyes:

BTW, Ellen Degeneres showed that anyone can sing with one of those mikes that changes your voice (like the one Will.I.Am uses in I gotta feeling).
