    Just to show you how fanatical some enthusists get about Apple announcements, here's someone who went to a lot of trouble:

    Yeah, the super fanboys and rumor hounds always make me chuckle. :black:
    Still, some of the stuff they come up with does look pretty cool.

    the first one is nifty, but not realistic, nor would it be comfortable or price savey. the second i can actually see coming out. everything is pretty realistic. the only thing that's a little funky is the touch sensative screen. would be a nice idea, but ... never know.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 2.6 GHz Core 2 Duo 4GB RAM OS 10.5.2
    The best thing is that stuff was created before the actual iPod nano was released, or even known about

    Specs:

    What does everybody think of the phone? I have to say, as an Apple fanatic, I'm quite underwhelmed. Hey, it's a phone, and it plays music... Hardly revolutionary, and doesn't float my boat!

    Maybe all will become clear when I get to play with one, after all, there were plenty of HDD MP3 players before the iPod came out, and it was still groundbreaking.

    Yea, I wasn't that impressed either. 100 songs is not enough to make me shell out the moolah for it. The design is probably all Motorola's, and unlikely influenced by Apple very much.

    i'm just sick of stupid things being added to phones. videos, cameras, and now music. wow. might as well just get a pda that makes calls. it's pretty much useless if you ask me.

    Yeah second one is nice but how can you scroll effectively? I mean how can you even see what you are scrolling with your thumb covering the screen? Now that's a nice idea but not practical to me at all. Touch Wheel would still need to be below the screen.

    wow. what's the point? i know if you really need it, great, but i don't see the point. i want my cellphone to make calls. that's it. i don't need a camera, videocamera, mp3 player, game system, etc. in it.
