A site called MacShrine has been posting image of full screen iPods for the last few weeks. Almost every image they have posted has been proven to be a FAKE. Most of these were photoshoped images of the current iPod (video). MacShrine had also claimed that Apple was supposed to release this unit on the Special Apple Event on February 28th. However, the only things that came out were the Intel-based Mac Mini & the iPod Hi-Fi.
The reason we are posting this, even though there is a pretty good chance this is fake, is because the images look more realistic than any of their previous ones. They have currently posted three pictures: iPod Nano besides the “new” iPod AV, iPod AV in someone’s hand, and the iPod AV in the iPod Hi-Fi dock. MacShrine currently claims that Apple plans to release this product on April 1st, 2006, which is Apple’s 30th “birthday”. (founded on April 1st, 1976) Anyways take a look the “possibly fake” images and decide whether they are real for yourself. Also click here for the 3rd image (next 2 ipod nano).
Update 1: As expected the first image has been proven to be completely fake. (Actually is a G5 iPod) MacShrine is offically “full of crap!”
Update 2: It turns out that the image we just linked to above which proved the iPod AV to be a fake is also fake! So pretty much everything here is photoshoped. More like these are sure to turn up soon :(
Update 3: We got bored so we made an iPod Nano AV!
