Wow, some iPhone 5 fakers have a lot of time on their hands

Wow, some iPhone 5 fakers have a lot of time on their hands

We don't usually believe in rewarding negative attention seekers, but boy did this iPhone 5 website faker put some time into this almost-certainly-a-hoax video. (After the break.)

Magheilong says:

This would be indeed bad-ass, if real.

tommyb_23 says:

Jason Brown says:

Jason Brown says:

johncblandii says:

I bet all of you went to and clicked in the bottom left corner too. :-D

DT says:

You are damn right we did!!! lol

johncblandii says:

Guilty as charged here too. :-D

Stynkfysh says:

Yep. Tried to type in one of the URLs as well.

johncblandii says:

Lol. I almost went that far but work pulled me from the ledge. LOL

fayek says:

as much as i think this new design is really cool and sexy, i think iphones are getting too thin to type on comfortably. iphone 4 is as thin as i want it to be

Avenged110 says:

Same here. There's a point where it can become too thin. Like the iPod touch 4. I prefer to use the iPhone 4 - if for nothing else - because it is slightly larger.

Asdollah Mirza says:

I think the final result will look real close to this video. while fake, not 100% fake. Mark my words!

Nick Powers says:

Absolutely fantastic. I really hope Apple pays attention to what people want, because this would be a home run for them. I honestly hope they head in this direction with the iPhone 5, as opposed to a simple hardware refresh of the iPhone 4.

Jonatan Karter says:

That's a lot of free time if this is fake. Geez. Wish they'd take some of my work load. Lol.

Wd4791 says:

Brilliant !!
Good effort to keep us entertained before the real deal !!
Bring on sept.

Bmwtech113 says:

I don't think Apple would advertise an iPhone with "No Service"

Morte Di Dio says:

Not only that but they also dont use the time 8:07 AM either

Roger Moreira says:

This thing is fugly! It couldn't be an Apple design!

Icvos says:

You probably said same about ip4 then bought one

Johnny Knows says:

My sources who are in the know, say this is the real deal folks!

johncblandii says:

So says the person commenting with a fake name on a [potentially] fake iPhone. :)

Crunch says:

The dude (and I do mean dude, as in male because no woman could come up with dumb sh%^& like this) made one mistake: At a minimum, the iPhone 5 will have 14.4Mbps for HSPA+ "4G", if Apple is going to use that Qualcomm dual GSM/CDMA chip, which I'm now leaning towards believing will happen.
I'm still hoping for 21Mbps, but the cost is probably too high (read: Apple's probably too cheap haha). If the AT&T/T-Mobile merger will go through, Apple will naturally include the 1700MHz band for iPhone 6. I wonder if they're going to surprise us and put 1700 into iPhone 5. If my recollection is to be trusted, I want to say that I remember seeing a story (or was it a rumor, but what's the difference these days really, right?) about iPhone 4 being tested on T-Mobile...?
P.S.: I didn't click in the lower left corner on
P.P.S.: (no, really! I didn't!)

kbot1226 says:

If you go to the swiss iPhone page there is a blank link where he/she clicked that is broken. Odd coincidence.

diordon says:

this is real ... best mock i would want

jimmybowser says:

Love it! I hope the new iP5 looks similar. That is a design that would definitely keep Apple the top of the brilliant design list!

DeLeon Hughes says:

People really go all out for the iPhone. Wow.

Axyt says:

How does SJ's ass smell from there bud?

Comettech says:

gammills08 says:

Justin William Anderson says:

Tempie Halterman says:
