Is it Apple's much awaited iPhone? Asks Engadget.

I doubt very much that's a GSM phone. To me that's obviously a VOIP handset, much like the Skype handsets that have been popping up everywhere.

Two things going for that assumption. First, the form factor - it's very unlike any cellphone in the market and very much like Skype handsets. See, for example this phone.

Second, the name - Apple doesn't have to name a GSM phone on a chat application of OSX. If it were a GSM phone, it'd be a whole different product category from a different division within the company.

Anyway, we'll know very soon whether it's a real product at all or just a clever Photoshop. Apple's WWDC2006 conference begins in 4 days. Scoble, who seems to be in the know, says there will be a "dizzying amount of new products" from Apple. Wow. I can hardly wait.

PS: lots of new entries are in the pipeline. I'll post as soon as I have more time.

I think its just a clever Photoshop trick . but than you never know

lately theres been a lot of talk and speculation about apple entering in cellphone market . i think it will not be a wise move and jobs can do well to stay away from this commodity market .

Wow. You write in the moment my site is restored. The index file was somehow deleted any the main page of the blog was down for past few days.

Yes, it's a very competitive market but so is personal computing. I think Apple has it in them to find a market.

I also think that there's a tremendous scope for an attractive device with a great interface to boot. I'm looking to buy a phone right now and there simple are no devices that really appeal to me that much.
