    Best lines from the clip:

    Buyer
    Oh, it's only 600 ? How come it's so much cheaper ?


    Counterfeit seller
    This is different, it's fake


    Other Chinese handsets other than the fake iPhone featured are:
    Olympic mascot handset,
    Watch handset,
    Optical zoom camera handset
    A handset that can detect counterfeit bills.
    Handsets that looks like a pack of cigarettes

    This is captured from a Taiwanese newscast, they took it off of another feed from China and added the color commentaries

    Wow, I would buy about (10) cash USD! That's amazing that it can do more than the 3G iPhone that hasn't even been released. Any idea what two networks it operates on? I could go for the phone that looks like a pack of Marlboro cigarettes, that was hilarious. LOL :D

    I'm so bummed on China right now, it's not even funny. How does their government just allow open, blatant trademark infringement? There are whold cities over there dedicated to this sort of thing. This is stealing. Competition is good, but do some innovation along the way instead of blindly copying something that someone else spent A LOT of time, energy, money, blood, sweat, and tears making. /rant

    I say, if people are dumb enough to buy it, bring it on.

    China really doesn't care too much about civil liberties, environmental standards, human rights, etc. As long as it doesn't cost the government money, they could pretty much care less.
