    i forget what company makes those. Isn't it a chinese company or something. I remember visiting their site along time ago and looking at all their knock-offs.

    Yes, and I think it comes with a brick of lead and a bottle of antifreeze.

    whats perhaps most amusing is the fact that it's currently selling above the price that the iPhone sells for on O2 (not counting the contract obv) ..... some poor person is going to be so disappointed and so short of money when they get that through the post!

    Not that it'll make any difference, but I decided to report it under the "Replica, Counterfeit Items and Unauthorised Copies" eBay policy.

    I wish we had phones in the US that are this nice.

    Apart from the iPhone, we are stuck with a myriad of clamshell phones and phones with tiny screens...

    You just shooting from the hip or can you actually post some facts to support this ridiculous statement?

    Considering the patents we have seen from Apple on the iPhone years ago, I doubt they stole it from anyone.

    What a joke. Maybe someone should email the buyer and tell them not to pay.

    These people are absolute crooks.

    Its hard to believe someone would buy that. You would think that people could tell if it is real or not. Its also one of the weaker knock-offs I've seen before.

    Err i hate to say it but none of those companies are Japanese!

    Nokia is Finnish, Samsung is South Korean, and Motorola is American! (hence the name Motorola as in 'Motor Roller' as they started out making car phones)

    Just thought i'd straighten that one out

    If you are going to correct someone, at least get your correction correct! :p The company dates from the late 1920s, but I believe it was after WWII that they changed their name to Motorola. In any case, it was well before the advent of mobile telephony.

    You are partially correct in that the name change was to accent "motor" in their name... only it was for car radios, not phones.

    Yes, and also "roller" had nothing to do with it. The company's name was an homage to the venerable Victrola, and Motorola was just one of several companies trying to cash in on that name power.
