Breaking: iPhone 4S users love new iPhone 5 (but are really trying out an old 4S)
I absolutely love this....Kimmel gets some folks on the street (including 4S users) to try what they are told is the new iPhone 5; they love the bigger screen, the lighter (and heavier) phone, and the faster speeds...except its just a plain old 4S:
First Look: iPhone 5 - YouTube

I imagine you can get folks to say similar stuff on any smartphone platform, but no matter what you think of iPhone/Android this is a good example of how technically literate the average Joe is.

you think this is fake? try it out yourself.

I did it with an ipad 2 vs ipad 3 and i got people convinced the ipad 2* had a retina display.**

quite funny really.

*sorry, i mean 'New iPad'

**did this on a group of 3-4 people who were familiar with the iphone 4 retina display at the same time. did not work on the actual techie guy who came later.

this doesn't surprise me at all...as sad as it is. That is why marketing is so powerful.
