Pics from the Apple patent documentation:

I hope they do something about the screen scratching. The top pic looks a lot like the leaked 5G video iPod pics. I guess we will know Tuesday!

I know the pics from the patent docs are real. The other photos may be fake, but I bet they are still a fairly acurate portrail of what a touchscreen iPod will look like, if one ever really surfaces.

lol Ok, I can even do the first picture although I'm not an artist proficient with photoshop. That one is fake for sure; there is no point repeating the menu 3 times on the screen.

Are you talking about the patent docs? I'm pretty sure those are the real deal.

EDIT:
I see what you are talking about. Nevermind.

All I can say as the post above does is that screen protectors will be awfully popular with such an iPod. But the fake site has a very good point. The first thing I noticed with the original colour bar picture was the chinese writing which looked drawn rather than written.

oh yeah, they're all fakes, first one with repeating menus, second one is just actually a picture of a 5g ipod with the screen extended, and the last one is obvious in the shadowin among other things.

I'd be hugely impressed (even for apple) if they managed to pull something off like this and still maintain the ease of use of the current ipods. Touch screen technology in my experience is usually poorly implemented or just a pain in the backside to use. It only seems to work when the screen is big and stationary. Otherwise you'll need a stylus or something which seems kinda awkward for an mp3 player.
