Fox News Falsely Reports iPhone 5 Will Have Laser Keyboard And Holographic Images

Loyal viewers of Fox News (you poor bastards) will be pretty disappointed come September 21, when they discover their shiny new iPhone 5s have exactly none of the sweet features the NYC Fox affiliate has reported the phone to have.

The news channel, rather embarrassingly, played a year-old iPhone 5 concept video during a package about the new device and the eager consumers camping outside the store to get theirs first.

"Starting at two-hundred bucks, the iPhone 5 is sleeker, has a laser keyboard, holographic images, and other cool new features," says a voice over a clip from Aatma Studio's August 2011 video titled — rather explicitly — "iPhone 5 Concept Features." On screen, a hand pivots to showcase what is clearly a wafer-thin fake. The year-old Youtube video has over 62-million views to date.

Oh dear. [TUAW]

    It's alright, FOX news watchers won't be able to afford them anyway.

    Only in the USA

      lol check the ISO6 support page... those features arnt listed for australia :P

    Kudos to the fox team for doing there extensive research............idiots!

    Sorry but Gizmodo Australia, but how many articles did you post about NFC, Passbook, etc, that are NOT part of the iPhone5/iOS6

    At least Fox News has the excuse of not being a tech news site for getting it wrong. Whilst being hilarious! CHRIST Year old vids? Ok, giz, you win this one!

      Those were all rumours, this was after the launch event, no excuse for getting it wrong then.

    Hidden features CONFIRMED!!!!!!! :p

    FOX news watchers are using good ol' Walmart branded phones. They think those new fangled ''smartass phones'' are for un-American liberals.

    Think they may have been watching the series finale of Weeds instead of the Apple keynote...

      My first thought! Damn that finale took a weird turn! Let's do the time warp again!

      Said finale keyboard ( on the iPhone 9?)

    how could the reporter be so dumb?

      How could you?

      Then again, I have a comment waiting moderation (I mention je-sus's last name) that goes on about how Giz can't talk, because they claimed various things about the iPhon5, despide the fact that they even acknowledged that the iOS6 beta did not support them. ie, NFC.

    Those videos were posted on the internet. They must be true! Ahhhhh.. The google journalist strikes again.

    What the f**k, it wasn't even the real phone? No wonder there are sheep out there. Holographic, no f**kin-waiiit a minute.

    One Word. Lulz.

    just wait for the next software update.. these features will become active.
