You should sell you Mac now and buy a peecee. What kind of Mac fan wouldn't take anything over a fake badly taped together iPhone over anything else?

He should've recycled the Diet Dr. Pepper cans, though.

It had to be fake because they can't sell it right now:
This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

Who said they were selling it? It's just a very early prototype sent out for (p)review.

All they need to do is fix the clock and update the casing, and then the FCC can approve it.

My favorite part:
"Small box -- would have thought it was a wireless Mighty Mouse. "

Things I liked:
On in the box
visible edges of paper iTaped on box
2008 iMac 3.06 Ghz, 2GB Memory, GeForce 8800, 500GB HD, SuperDrive
8gb iPhone on Tmobile

Yeah, you can still see the outlines of the Might Mouse on the box. The paper doesn't cover it all

Of course not, but that's how I knew it was fake before even opening the link... Even without the iTape and the Amazon reference it would have been fake because of this.
