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]
