iPhone 5 concept video draws more than 16 million views



yttt_logo.pngIn case you weren't already aware that many people are obsessing about the release of the upcoming iPhone 5, here's further evidence. According to iPhone 5 videos are among the most popular on YouTube right now.

"The iPhone 5 might not be out yet, but that hasn't stopped Apple fans from seeking out supposedly "leaked" videos of the device and videomakers from creating futuristic concept videos. Searches for "iPhone 5" have risen dramatically in the past two weeks and over 5,000 various iphone 5-related videos have been posted in the past month." ~ Kevin Allocca, YouTube Trends.

The video to end all videos in this iPhone 5 craze is this concept video from Aatma Studio. It shoes an almost paper-thin iPhone with a built-in, laser-projected keyboard and a holographic display. More than 16 million people have watched the video and my guess is at least some of them will cry foul when the iPhone 5 is released without these features. It's a concept video folks, and although it's extremely well done, Hollywood style, it's not real. But if it is real I'll be in line to get one on the first day and I'll say I knew it all along.  ; )
