A reader sent in this photo of a supposedly Chinese iPhone, but KennMSr calls it a…

FAKE!
That picture has to be a photochopped image because the iPhone is on display at an Apple store (notice the black security tether). 
Unless Apple made the U.S. iPhones language agnostic (like all Macs) – but there has been no mention of this feature.
Besides, if that was the case then the carrier logo still would probably be AT&T not ChinaMobile – even though they’re the world’s largest cell carrier with 296M subscribers.

Anyone want to translate the screen for us?
Keep in mind, like the crashed iPhone picture, it’s really easy to add a photo to iPhone (via iPhoto or Aperture) and display it in full screen mode.

  1. Hello there. Way back around 2000 I was a summer intern with Jason’s PowerPage, then operating under the Go2Mac name…ah, memories!
    Anyway, right now I am interning with Apple in Beijing and will be happy to take a stab at translating, but between my somewhat lacking Chinese language skills and the terrible resolution on this pic, it will be rather difficult:
    The first bubble asks where to go to eat food this evening, suggesting a pizza place.
    the second bubble says ‘actually, (illegible text) also doesn’t sound bad’ and i think mentions something about you come get me.
    The third bubble says lets go eat (illegible text).
    The final message (still being typed) asks ‘what time do we meet’
