Does this video show the real Apple tablet in action?

It comes from a video sharing site in the Netherlands. Real, fake or something else?

Saw this way back, and people looked at it and pretty much nailed it down as FAKE. Wish I could remember where it was...

Oh, look, there it is! Google is your friend. Back on Dec 10th, and the video comments are not kind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIGd4aBzhTU

Note that they guy's hands leave a shadow on the device's screen. LCDs don't do that (and even Pixel Qi's screen doesn't do color video/animation in transflective mode, if I understand correctly). Blue/green-screen type tech with the video of the software dropped in after filming the guy faking the gestures.

So... FAKE! Sorry.

fake, apple would never make a tablet that big and unwieldly.

This is also on YouTube and has been for at least a month.

this is fake, it first showed up months ago and wasn't that interesting back then.

the only thing you should be posting is videos of steve jobs going "this is the apple tablet, now give me my cheeseburger"

I would use an iPad such as the one in this fake commercial in a heartbeat. I fly a lot and doing work, watching a movie or just manipulating some photos would be so much easier with an iPad, right in my lap or on the fold-up table in front of me. Then I don't have to worry about the guy in the front putting his seat all the way back, and me having to closing the lid on my laptop and doing something else.
