The iPhone has been updated, with two new models of the phone popping up for sale online. iphone_prototype_01 One of the prototype iPhones running a beta OS Sound too good to be true? Well, sadly, it is, because the two models are actually – according to their eBay seller - “rare and collectable” examples of prototype iPhones …
I wonder what the "More Other" button does?
Paris, because she likes more of the other.
Is it bad...
...that I like that UI more than the real one?
is it me or dose this this look like the iphoney that was featured a while ago?
Overpriced, doesn't work properly...
Sounds just like the one in the shops!
Mine's the one with the paperweight in the pocket.
either way dumb people are releaved of their money, whether its a phony iFone, a prototype iFone or a real one
Are my eyes knackered or does the bottom picture (the keyboard) turn into an optical illusion? Go about 3 feet from the monitor and scan your eyes over it - anyone else seeing white dots appear in the corners between keys?
Off to the optician otherwise. Bill - cos he's got glasses on.
Seeing dots between correctly spaced dots is a known optical illusion, see
Yes, its a version of the well known Hermann grid illusion:
Proof positive the Mac disciples worship Steve Jobs. Apple could put dirt in a box and sell their iDirt for $100 a box. And the Mac disciples would pay for it. Then they would pay to have their whole yard with iDirt and have their self-righteous holier-than-thou walk about them because they have iDirt.
If someone sold Steve Jobs stool sample, some Mac zealot would buy it. Do you think I'm joking? I am not. iCrap would be an instant success. The most hardcore Mac fanboys and fangirls long ago lost their touch on reality.
"The most hardcore Mac fanboys and fangirls long ago lost their touch on reality."
This is proof positive that you have completely lost the plot.
It's an Lcars UI!!
I love the look of it, but it's still an iPhone.
Alien... well... ya know!
Linux-'tards need not apply
Wade, go back to tinkering with your Linux kernel, and stop moaning about how you can't afford anything made by Apple. Staying in the past and moaning about the present doesn't help you move forward into the future - Apple at least push the boundaries to see what is actually possible. When was the last time YOU thought outside of the box?
Surviving prototypes of ANYTHING are always collectable in somebody's eyes. Personally I wouldn't mind an IBM AT prototype because I've still got a 'real' one.
At time of writing, the ebay link is dead.
Besides, iDirt and iCrap aren't white, so no self respecting Mac owner would tarnish their desk with them.
Clap Clap for the Handicap!!!
eBay item has been removed!
mm just a thought...about proof positive
is cult of mac becoming bit more like scientology?
striking parralers minus the little scary ghosts that ruin your life?
Comments to me are proof positive I am right. I struck a nerve. I found out a long time ago that the quickest way to make some angry is to be right. Try it.
Be careful, Michael
It looks like KITT, from Knight Rider.
So he unlocked and iPhone and wrote some emulation software. Apple Fanbois will be wetting themselves, like a gift from the Lord God Jobs himself. Apple equivalent of the shroud or Jesus' finger bones. The very same ones that many craftsmen made from animal bone in the middle ages when relics were big business!
I like that the serial number option is a box of Cheerios - clearly this UI was designed by the techies
To extend a metaphor
On his ebay listing, next to primeval Jesus phones, does he also have pieces of the True Cross?
But you didn't answer the question Wade, when did you last think outside of the box? And you retaliated...which by your assertion makes the rest of us right.
