fake iPod-esque iphone selling on the streets
Though the iPhone "got unprecedented press coverage around the world", with Harvard Business School professor David Yoffie claiming Apple generated $400 million in free iPhone advertising since its announcement, a gentleman called John Derbyshire sent in a picture (from the UK or Asia?) of a fake iPhone to Engadget - that looks more like an iPod - and is selling for £75 ($ 150).
That would be a bargain for sure, but everyone knows the iPhone will be priced around $ 450 and will launch first in the US in June.
Hard to believe they will find any suckers for this one.
