Busted: Canon EOS Smart 1 Phone

Busted!
The well done April Fools hoax has officially been busted. Here is the Tag Heuer phone used for the mockup. :) I have added a reminder to my calendar for next years April Fools day.

UPDATE
I just realized what day tomorrow was, so please keep that in mind. :) The person who sent it claims it isn’t but that’s part of the fun I guess. I will say that I can’t find the phone anywhere on the web that they would have doctored, if you do find it, please send it on.

Photo Rumors has also received the images and apparently they come from a Greek magazine. We have no confirmation from anyone else that the product is real.

Original Post
I received this little product today . I have no idea if it’s real or just a great PhotoShop hoax. What do you think? Would you buy a Canon branded smartphone if the photography capabilities trumped all other smartphones on the market?

It kind of looks like the Caterpillar branded smart phone.
