    Of course it does. It's a Photoshopped iPhone picture.

    Actually, the CECT A88 is a somewhat good blatant clone of the iPhone, as far as clones go. Not good as in the phone is good, but as in they spent a lot of effort trying to make the interface and front-face look about the same.

    In the end though, it's still a blatant knockoff, and while it might fool someone at first glance, it's missing a lot of things that make the iPhone what it is.

    See:

    The A88 is much thicker though.

    Someone posted on here a few months ago that their father came home from China with a few of these and he couldn't get them to sync with iTunes. Once he posted good pics, it was easy to tell that he had fakes. While this is one of the better Chinese copies out there, it has a standard USB mini jack at the bottom instead of an Apple dock connector. A current iphone owner would notice that immediately.

    Not a clone, as clone means it's similar.

    Instead, that is just another low quality knockoff that looks slightly closer to iPhone than the other low quality knockoffs, featuring:

    - Poor Construction
    - Poor Usability
    - Features are faked (what they claim as 2.0 megapixel camera is often a vga camera, sometimes if you are lucky, it would be 1.3 megapixels)
    - Does not work with iTunes, iTunes store, app store, third party iPhone apps. Actaully it has no Apple apps. There are apps skinned to look like apple apps but the knockoff apps performs poorly.
    - No support, no warranty
    - And many more

    ???

    I'm surprised that apple hasn't stopped this!
    Most of the icons are the same as the apple iphone. And it is real because they are also selling it on amazon, and there are actual pictures that are not photoshopped. I'm completely amazed that apple would let this go.
