    Take a look at this eBay auction:

    G4 Pismo

    Is this bogus? There are some things about it that make me suspect...

    The FCC warning makes me want to believe it's real

    It must just be a upgraded processor. There were few manufactures that made them.

    really?
    the FCC warning is photoshopped, you can see the letters dont mix with the indents on the foam.
    i say this is a fake.

    I think it is a real Pismo with the G4 550MHz upgrade. He also painted part of the display housing which is now coming off. The lettering on the bottom about it being a project, etc... is either not really there or they put that on too.

    So yes, it is probably a real G4 Pismo (upgraded), but NO it is not some secret project and only 4 were made.
