Al rondklikkend op de iPhone website viel me op dat de telefoon ook een stuk kleiner is geworden, sinds de introductie eind vorig jaar. Maar helaas, er blijkt enkel wat - misleidend - geshopped te zijn.

Wanneer we de nieuwe iPhone persfoto's koppelen aan de originele, blijkt dat ze gewoon een grotere hand hebben gebruikt, waardoor de telefoon automatisch kleiner lijkt.

UPDATE 23/6: Welcome Boing Boing readers! Apple has since removed the signup page with the new photo and just redirects to the generic iPhone page. Here's a screenshot I made earlier.

KFC notoriously did this with their "99 Snackers" sandwiches a few years back.

Not true, go to, they're still using hte first model. Not sure where this other pic came from.

@Hal Visit the 'Sign Up' page that I've linked in this post. It's the photo I used for the comparison (and the official Apple PR photo from last year).

That picture got me thinking Apple had perhaps altered the dimensions of the unit.

>all they did was zoom in a little. its the same

Nonsense - In the new pic the bottom two fingers are wrapped to the front of the phone and the top one is pointing off to the right instead of forward and down - it isn't even close to being the same.

While I was shopping for cel phones, I first tried holding them in my hand. I have large hands and they were al so small and they made my hnd hurt to use them. Decided on the Treo - for a number of reasons - and also because it was large.

it's fake.
That photo is not even on the Apple marketing materials.

"Old" -

"New" -

They are "on the Apple marketing materials", and boy, does that new shot make it look *tiny*.

Nice to see a big hand model getting some work. Most seems to go to the tiny hand models used on a million TV adverts to make stuff look bigger than it is :o)

Ruth, Yeah, that's why I date women with small hands.

boB - 22/06/2007 om 19:18:29

Prima!!! Heel goed gezien manneke!

Xof - 22/06/2007 om 19:22:46
