Over the last few days we have been seeing videos and plenty of images of a full-screen “iPod AV”. There is a good chance Apple has already created this and if not they probably will do so. Almost every image so far looked really fake until the one that turned up a few days ago from MacShrine. Even though this site has become well known for FAKE iPod images, this one looked credible. Also since Adobe Photoshop has become common, it is hard to tell whether these items actually exist. However, videos were released on YourTube that demonstrated an iPod AV in action playing a video, which backs up their claim. This video may be more credible since it is much harder to create videos of this sort. If this does exist it should be announced on April 1st, 2006, which is Apple’s 30th birthday.
Anyways back to the image above, we have created a mockup of an iPod Nano AV. It only took us about 15-20 mins using photoshop and some images from Apple’s iPod Nano image gallery to come up with this. This shows how easily an experienced photoshop user can create realistic looking images. I can barely use photoshop, but if I had more time and was more experienced I could probably create something much better.
