iPod Nano Spy Shots Confirmed as Real by Apple Legal

mfus15Apple Legal has asked Giz to take down the iPhone nano spy shots from earlier today, and out of respect for The Steve, we’ve complied[…] Thanks to mfus15 for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 1731Diggs).

What other users say about this:

thestyles: most likely apple asked for the image to be taken down because it looks very similar to what will be released.
i really would like to see an ipod like http://www.gearlive.com/news/article/q307-leaked-images-of-new-3rd-gen-ipod-nano/ that would be amazing. well we’ll see tomorrow.

DaveClarkOne: I remember people not digging the original iPod mini when it launched. Uh, it rocked. This one will rock just as hard. Those who don’t like it…there’s always the Zune.

dandyhighwayman: Don’t believe the hype:

LynchMOB: My Apple speculation…. regardless if the spy photo is real or not or how UGLY it is. This stubbyPod will be the 6gen iPod. Probably all the functionality of the current ipod just smaller. Shuffle & Nano form factor will stay the same. The NEW addition to the iPod line up will be the iPodTouch, full touch screen ipod w/ music, video & cover flow UI pretty much the same as the iPhone but without the phone & internet.

NoNamesLeft: I seriously doubt this could be true because iPod’s are seemingly designed to the Golden Ratio. Check out this

To me this iPod looks to be off balance, a quick measurement makes me believe it is 1.137, which is way off the mark.

Also why is it that in the original image it is called ‘nano-flower.psd’? Psd is Photoshop.

bball2: That looks “FUGLY”

Pifman: After even 5 minutes of thought, I don’t believe this is real whatsoever. First of all it’s fugly. I mean, it’s just not aesthetically pleasing. Hell they even managed to make the newest Shuffle look sexy.

Those images (in the 1st post) make it look like it’s got a giant weird bevel. You can see it hardcore on the Gray one. WTF kind of bevel is that (other than looking exactly like a generic Photoshop bevel? Looks like some kind of bad Creative-brand knock off.

Also the “flower” iMac ads made sense, because they were much more candy colored and looked like flower pedals from above. Also the shading (both the shadows from the Nanos and the shadows on the center button) are all different. Apple wouldn’t be doing such piss poor Photoshop work. It also says it’s displaying at 100% (very top of the image) which would mean they’re working at a very low dpi. Not likely.

effedup: looks like the short fat kid no one wants on their team.

Avian00: How do people not realize how fake this is? Apple requesting that it gets taken down because of “Intellectual Property” doesn’t mean it’s real. This is the same company that claims the word “pod” is their intellectual property. Do you think they’re going to let an ugly mock-up of their most popular product stay online? Seriously people, this is obviously a Photoshop job!

copperbeechco: I still can’t believe even one person is believing this picture. Look at the header and the title extension. .psd is a photoshop document. This is such a spoof I can’t believe it

jsnow87: My 1st gen black nano just broke. I am glad I did not run out to buy a 2nd gen, if this 3rd gen is real at least I can get a discount 2nd gen. The spy shot looks like a step backward but I guess seeing it in action will be the real test.

agimat: Those things look like midget Zunes.

tarunsavla: iphone killing ipod’s market share?

maybe steve job will have to come with something like “if iphone can be a better ipod, then ipod cud be a better @#$@”
