    Hopefully not - that looks horrible, the nano's look good in red but the iPhone no.

    The red iPhone just screams

    "Hey you, yeah over here. The red thing that persons talking on, yeah that's me. Hey come over here and steal me, or smash me. You have to do something after all I am the most obnoxious shade of red. SMASH ME".

    ^ LOL. That may be true, however, it does look pretty hot and unique. Not many smartphone touchscreens are like that.

    that picture is from a very very very old rumor that stated the iPhone 3G would come out in multiple colors... I believe there's pictures ofa blue one and a green one as well...

    OP: That would take about 10 minutes (maybe not) to fake with Photoshop. If it wasn't that, it can easily be done by one of those companies that charge you $5,000 to paint your phone.

    Anyone heard of ColourWare? :rolleyes:

    ColourWare red iPhone 3G

    Otherwise, this would be very easy to do with Photoshop. ;)

    Aye, colorware. That's it. $150 paint job for a $200 phone. Considering how clumsy I am, there's NO WAY I'd pay for that. As for the original picture, it looks like the iPhone 3G promo photos that were just photoshopped.

    For me black is the way to go. I really don't care for the red iPhone look. Thankfully they are not coming out with one.

    I dont understand folks like you. If you dont like it dont buy it. Why hope it doesnt come out when it has no effect on you in any way. You are strange.

    I was about to post the same thing. If you don't like it, don't buy it. I don't like the red iPhone either, but if someone wanted to buy one, more power to them...

    I think a red iphone would look sweet!!! I love the mock-ups.

    Unfortunately, I thought I heard Steve Jobs say no more products till 2009

    Ew.

    If it were a bit darker shade and metallic, kind of like the product red nanos, I think it would look quite nice.

    Looks nice. Hopefully Apple will introduce some more colors other than white and black.

    I would love to pick up a (PRODUCT RED) iPhone, but this ain't it; probably just a colorware version. Unfortunately, Apple usually reserves the RED line for low capacity models, and there's no way I'm going back to 8 GBs.
