    Heya, Im posting tonight because I need help!
    I attended the Engadget Reader Meet up in NYC last week, and if anyone else was there, they should be able to remember what Im about to bring up. One of the writers ((The one that is stationed in Hong Kong, Richard Lai)) had a fake iPhone 5, but it was unlike most of the fake iPhone 5's I've been able to find, and Im really interested in getting one just like it.
    I contacted him about it, and I believe he bought it strait from a market in China. He doesn't know the specific name of the device, and neither do I. I was wondering if anyone on this forum would be able to know what it is by eye, or be able to help me on my quest to finding one for sale on the internet. I don't really care if it comes from China, I just want one!
    If its really impossible to find, I would really appreciate of people could post something similar to it, thats as thin or thinner to it please!
    Im posting several pictures from the meet up that hopefully will help! ((Sorry about the poor focusing!))

    I would never go for a fake one. Even one reason is enough: SAR!

    I'd also be interested in finding this phone. I have edited some of those photos to get a more accurate image of what it actually looks like, but they're on my other computer and I'll post them tomorrow.

    For the lulz of course.
