Photo (or a photoshop job) of Apple iPhone surfaces

Summary:1. CNET's Jasmine France leads us to an image of Apple's rumored iPhone.

1. CNET's Jasmine France leads us to an image of Apple's rumored iPhone. France suspects the image is too good for it to be a Photoshop-job.  But then again, I've see what a good artist can do with Photoshop. So I wouldn't rule out that possibility. That said, the iPhone is, at this point, about the worst kept secret in the industry (particularly given some of Apple's recent filings with the US Patent and Trademark Office). The image shows a candy-bar form-factored phone -- an industrial design that would confirm the suspicions of American Technology Research senior analyst Shawn Wu who predicted as much.

2. Motorola's iTunes phones R.I.P.

3. What's interesting about this discovery is that the images were apparently going to be timed with the start of Apple Expo in Paris.  Y'know... a city in one of those European countries that loves Apple for its digital rights management (DRM) technology.
