Odd.
Here’s what else is interesting: the original page with these videos still does reside on the Canadian version of Apple ’s website. Here’s you’ll find the videos for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, the HTC Droid Eris, the Motorola Droid X, the Nokia N97 Mini, the Samsung Omnia II, the iPhone 3GS, and the iPhone 4. However, the Asian version of Apple ’s site has the videos removed as well.
The videos are still up on Apple ’s official YouTube channel, but they are no longer featured, and are a little bit trickier to find.
Not surprisingly, the videos had not gone down too well with Apple ’s rivals.

But it is still not clear the actual reason for taking down the videos. One of the obvious reasons for taking them down could be because of rivals threatening of lawsuits but I would be surprised if Apple ’s lawyers had not evaluated the possibility of lawsuits before giving a go-ahead to publish them in the first place. So the disappearance is indeed quite intriguing.
