This is a rumor, we’re taking it with more than just one grain of salt. If anyone has additional info, please use our “contact” link above to let us know.

[UPDATE: 4:32pm EST: The photos were used and created for the Macheist viral marketing campaign. Macheist ( was created by the team that created the my dream app competition. The first “heist” required you track down those photos and send them to The prize was some free software and a discount off a future bundle of shareware. Thanks, “wandering joe,” “rt,” and “hedgehogfrenzy.” The validity of the specs are questioned as well.]

  1. I didn’t write the above post. I assume it’s good ol’ Titty, getting his revenge on me for supposedly posting in his moniker.

    Titty, let’s end this now. It wasn’t me who dun’it. It was someone else. Can you go back to your Dell and let us please move on?

    The phone bites. I wouldn’t buy one.

  2. Sorry but if thas what its going to look i would be disappointed …way too obvious and not an ideal solution, i would imagine a sliding type form factor giving one an ipod that turns to phone with slide out keyboard……. or something totally different but not flip i bet

  3. NOT EVEN CLOSE to reality… not for my money

    nice hype try tho… but not on the money

    NO ONE will see it until Steve Jobs pulls it out of his pocket in January. You can bet real money on that.

    Apple is making heaps of money from the iPod and computer products to go into the Holiday season with a new line item…

    AS for this fiasco of a fraud, I wouldn’t pay monoply money for it…

    MDN – money ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  4. “The big red flag for me is the claimed resolution… 320 by 240 pixel…

    “Okay, so why is that screen *perfectly* square?”

    The screen is not square, not even close. I have no idea whether this drawing is genuine, but it’s a nice drawing!

  5. The iPhone will not have buttons. It will hopefully be all touch screen, voice command and iChat video phone enabled. Apple is not a “follow the crowd and hope we sell as many” type of company.

    The iPhone needs to be ground breaking to become just as hot as the iPod.

  6. Comment from: Erich

    “the mesh looks like its been generated with Rhino. A shame that there’s no Mac version…since it’s prettymuch an industry standard-app these days. :(“

    They were not generated by Rhino. They were made in Blender 3D ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />
