Another Next Gen Ipod Video Pic (from factory floor?)

This is the latest image to surface on the supposed Ipod Video that popped onto the Internet this week. Have a look. This is definitely the same thing. Is it real?

Factory Photo of the New iPod Video

Is this a factory shot? You decide. It does resemble other factory images, but the color lines are suspect. Does anyone with real TV/video experience have any insight on this one?

Ipod HD Mockup

I like the title Ipod HD, it makes a little sense, but I am not sure if it would really be in HD.

Secret Ipod Mockup: Movie example

Another orientation showing what a film could look like. I wonder if Apple will beging introducing movies when this version comes out. Makes sense if the screen is more like a PSP screen.

Ipod mockup showing example of touch senstive window

It's unclear whether or not the orientation will be this way or horizontal, but this mockup shows how it could look. What are some good possible names? Ipod Extra? Ipod Large? Ipod Full? Would love to see suggestions in the comment section.

The question here is what do all the numbers suggest for the left hand side? width? composite?
