There are people with too much time on their hands, there are fanboys with too much time on their hands, and then there's this. It seems some enterprising fella over in iPhone-less Japan took it upon himself to build his own dummy iPhone. Yes, "build," as in "fabricate from scratch." As opposed to, say, flying to the States and picking one up -- at considerable expense, yes, but consider his chosen alternative. To his credit, the dummy looks absolutely superb right down to every minor detail -- if you forgive the old-school fake display with Cingular branding and a missing YouTube icon.
