How to have an 'iPhone' right now... well, sort of

iPrint, iFold, iPhone

Want an Apple iPhone? Want it now? Well, we can't promise the real thing, but you can whip yourself up an almost perfect facsimile of the highly desirable handset. All you need is a colour printer, some glossy photo paper, a knife, a steel rule and a downloadable iPhone template.

Posted the day after Apple CEO Steve Jobs' Macworld Expo keynote by the guys at Sneakmove, the downloadable PDF is ready to print, trim and fold into you very own full-size ersatz iPhone. They've even included a version that can be edited in Adobe Illustrator, allowing you to change, say, the image on the screen.

Imagine the aghast glances you'll get strolling down the street, iPhone(y) in hand? Be the envy of major governments.

Sneakmove's PDF and Illustrator templates can be found here. ®
