    Default See What Happens When You Assume, iPhone Nano Forgers


    So now that the iPhone Nano is officially a no go, there are several Eastern manufacturers with forged versions of a product that doesn't even exist.

    The forging started just after Christmas in Thailand and only continued to escalate; now leaving forgers with excess phony stock that will undoubtedly make its way westward.

    There is a lot of speculation as to what Apple will do about these iPhone Nanos by pundits and bloggers. Surely Apple would like to follow suit against these forgers if they could locate them, but that seems unlikely at this time…most likely a few not so well informed consumers will buy the iPhone Nano, and impress their equally uniformed friends with the "latest and greatest technology."

    I personally find it kind of funny that the forgers got it wrong this year. However, I am all for Apple getting some competition but blatant knockoffs that are designed to mislead people…not cool.

    ^Yeah, haha. The shuffle always makes me laugh... If that was cheap enough, I'd love to pick one up just to mess with people.

    AT&T and Cingular merged lol. Yeah, maybe Apple held off on the iPhone nano(if they really have made one) to point out to people who don't know that the fony ones out there are actually fake. Confusing I know.

    i would trade my 3g for that shuffle any day. The 3g's screen is too big for me. I love reading emails with small 1inch screens. too bad...

    The iPhone Shuffle doesn't have a dialer. You just shake it and calls someone randomly.
