I was watching Heroes tonight where they go 5 years into the future. Parkman the cop calls Petrelli the president on what looks like the iPhone. They both appear to have it. You don't ever see the screen but the front, back, camera lens, and side buttons were all visible...as well as the phones thickness greatly resembled that of the iPhone.

Did anyone else see the episode or notice that?
Just curious!

I fully expect to start seeing them in movies. Apple does a great job of getting macs in the camera shot. I don't see why they wouldn't use the same strategy with iPhone.

You aren't the only one to think it was an iPhone. I have seen threads on other boards about it.

I re-watched the scene in question, any IMO it is not an iPhone. It does have the same size and shape of an iPhone as well as a shiny back though. What makes me think that it wasn't an iPhone is that the bottom of the phone did not appear to have a hole for a docking connector. I also thought I saw a non-Apple logo on the back top of the phone. Maybe someone can get a screen shot of it.

Well I was able to download a copy of the episode and get some screen caps. There really wasn't a great shot of the phone. These are the best angles I could find.

IMO, it is not an iPhone. I suppose since this episode takes place 5 years in the future, it could be a later version ;).

Haha, couldn't they make a cooler looking phone, maybe one that weighed 10 pounds, and was 8 inches long, square, and had a 6 inch attenna. Now that would be futuristic.
