Does anybody know whether or not there are iPhone 3G fakes?
Oh, dozens. You should have seen this place leading up to June 2008...
Oh, you mean real ones for sale. Of course.
The Instinct, the Storm, etc.
Any "fakes" would be in China or other parts of East Asia.
Basically everywhere. If I had the tools and instructions, I would try to make one myself.
Thanks for your responses.
How easy are those fakes to distinguish from the real iphone?
It can be hard to distinguish a fake iPhone from the outside, but software-wise its not so hard.
Look for the App Store and iTunes Store, as well as Safari. That should tell you. If the icons and text underneath them are the same, chances are its a genuine Apple iPhone.
Those are iPhone fakes?
Ooops, you're right...
They have turn-by-turn voice navigation. Obviously fake!
No, they just copied the iPhone's navigation system really, REALLY poorly.
Some are easy such as this one: http://www.diytrade.com/china/4/pro...68_i9_i9_A88_T32_china_iphone.html#normal_img
Some on the other hand are a lot harder to tell: http://gizmodo.com/353413/closest-chinese-iphone-clone-yet
check this out..
its called HIPHONE...
but thats not to say the Storm and Instinct arent good phones
I happen to like the Storm.
Much more attractive to look at IMO.
Some 100% look-a-likes. Have fun
You have a really similar username lol. even confuses me. I like the avatar btw.
The Storm is pretty, I remember Blackberrys being butt-ugly, handset and interface wise. I doubt they would have ever concieved this design if the iPhone hadn't been around
