    We're not sure if the pics above are the result of an engorged, Chinese fanboy fantasy or actual product renderings of Meizu's rumored M8. We wouldn't be surprised either way what with China-based Meizu's history of uh, Apple inspired design. Posted by a senior discussion-forum jockey on the Meizu site, the M8 is now said to measure in at a scant 57x105x11.5-mm and packs both a GSM and Chinese TD-SCDMA 3G radio, a 3.3-inch 720x480 pixel display, Bluetooth, a 3 megapixel camera, and an ARM11 CPU capable of recording video at 30fps at the device's full 720 x 480 resolution. Too good to be true? Perhaps, but if not Meizu then certainly some other nimble Chinese outfit will be unveiling their iPhone clone soon enough and likely well before the iPhone hits Asia sometime in 2008. And as we've seen, even Apple's tenacious legal team can be helpless in the face of shutting down copycats on foreign turf.

    Considering there have been many device that were pda phone with no keypad like some of those XDA phones and the fact that this phone surfaces a month or so after the iphones lauch, I doubt this company necessarily ripped Apple off. I don't think they have the time or cash to do it. Then again it seems like it is running that windows mobile itunes skin seeing as video of WM6 surfaced on cnet.com today and it looks different than what this device is running.

    What's funny is that they hate Apple yet they copy them. So if Apple goes out of business they're sunk.
