    Coincidentally...

    As I went for lunch today I passed a small film crew and a guy with a red power book, didn't think much of it at the time.

    Sounds good!

    I like the sound of Apple extending their Product Red range although for mysel fI'm perfectly happy with my black second coming.

    How long before you can remove the back of your iPhone 3g (those screws in the base) and send it away to have it airbrushed? Sounds like a market opportunity there, could also have it laquered to keep it scuff resistant too...

    Back in the day...

    I remember ICL brought out a red PC monitor (mid-90s). Guess it was to make it stick out from the beige crowd, but gawd it looked awful!

    That's not an iPhone 3G

    I don't buy it. A Product (RED) version of the iPhone 3G may be in the works, but that certainly isn't it. It has a flat back and black plastic switches on the side, which indicate that it's an original model iPhone. The 3G has a curved back and chrome switches. These are probably just Photoshop images.

    Re: That's not an iPhone 3G

    I don't think anyone is claiming that is an iPhone 3G - it's just some image someone mocked up in Photoshop to illustrate the original article...

    Define "A percentage"...

    About 0.01% goes to charity, the rest - including the $30 supplement - goes into Jobsworths pocket...

    And you will still have to pay extra to get the firmware upgrade...

    The Onion

    The Onion had an amazing T-shirt on their store that was red with the writing:

    CONSCIENCE

    CLEA(RED)

    that really made me laugh.

    Yer w'one on the screen looks like something Captain Kirk would have had a fling with in the OST.

    Phone pictures are from Colorware

    Colorware (colorwarepc.com) is the company that will paint your PC, Mac, PDA or phone pretty much any colour you want.

    The photos of the phone are lifted directly from Colorware's own original iPhone pages. Someone has just added the face on the front.
