If you are looking for competing brands of MP3 players, you can hardly walk into a store, especially in a big city, without seeing many choices, and a lot of those competing players are trying to look like iPods.

If you are talking about some kind of bootleg iPod or unlicensed knockoff that pretends to be a real iPod, you won't get help finding them here, and I don't think you'd want such a thing.

Or do the reverse: Buy an iPod and have "Creative Zen V Plus" engraved on the back.

Here in Vancouver there is a "Night Market" which is essentially a big flea market with every type of Chinese knock off product you can think of.

Like "Dezigner" sunglass, shoes, handbags..ect.

Also, there were a ton of fake iPods, that didn't say "iPod" on them, but they looked almost identical to the Nano.

Pretty funny. They were like, "these have a 90 day warranty" and I said "ok, who the hell do I contact to redeem this warranty? Some fake company in China?...ha ha, ya right" Plus they are all Windows only, assuming they even work....

They were like 50 bucks...

I'm also looking for a cheap bootleg nano just for kicks. Your best bet is ebay. There are some guides available on them too.
