    some of the stats vary. but what is way cool to me is in addition to the "3" megapixel cam. it has a 0.3 megapixel cam on the front!!! (i've mentioned this idea before as a solution to video calls)

    i found this at http://www.vr-zone.com/?i=4548 and have no reason to believe it is true or not. all the details are on that site.

    This is fake. The UI on the phone is EXACTLY the same as the iPhone.

    My razr v3x has 2 cameras. One is for video calls. Too bad they aren't supported in the US yet. It's a crappy phone. All RAZRs are.

    Well the company that claims to manufactur the China iPhone also has this iPod looking device that although looks different than the iPod, the GUI looks very similar to it.

    Check it out!

    It looks cheap and tacky.

    And it does not run OS X but instead some variant of Wind0ze!

    huh.....

    hm... well, it cant be fake, because the ipod "like" miniplayer (original, huh?)
    has been selling a while. But if they can, all the power to them, because if they can make a (seemingly) better product, then more reason for apple to make something crazy!

    I'd like to try them both. (I have a feeling which one would work better.)

    Why can't Apple sue them from here to SHanghai? Obviously they ripped off proprietory technology, probably from the Chinese Apple factories

    I don't understand China's attack on intellectual property rights unless I take into consideration that economic warfare is warfare against the US and we still are their Enemy No. 1, Cold War or not.

    I'd sue them until they bled from the Oligarchs on down.

    oh yes this is serious indeed, they have a concept graphic that looks like iphone and that image can potentialy bring down the whole US economy leading to poverty and God knows what evils ..
    i say sue them .. sue the kid who made the image, sue adobe (if photoshop was used) sue the website, sue the hard disks, sue the monitors that were used to display the image .. sue the whole china .. from oligarchs down ..

    Apple tried to sue the people who did those pocket pc themes. and such so I guess then can sue for this also.

    lol, dont think this is same situation, a picture, is different from a theme that can apply to device and make them look like something else, its basically, free speech.

    If you use cheap labour and factories in China then there is always a good chance your products are going to get copied, it ain't just limited to Apple products.

    Not saying its right, its just a fact of life.
