    Except it's not made by Apple :)


    In addition to normal Windows Mobile specs, it actually supports dual-sims.

    Some websites are selling this around $100 USD. I think I might get one as a backup phone. I'm sure this one will not have the dropped calls like my original iPhone 3G. ;)

    lol. This is awesome. If I had the $100 just to blow, I'd buy it just to play around with it.

    I don't understand how bad a company's design team can be that they have to copy something to the bone.

    ^^^ Chinese knock-offs are often copied to the bone as that's where they make the originals anyways. It's easy to copy that stuff...

    Hmmm, I'm not sure I'd be happy buying a cheap iPhone imitation. Just imagine the sort of problems you might have with it:

    It'd probably be cheaply made with things like
    - glass that isn't flat to the bezel
    - light leaks round the screen
    - cracks in the body
    - dust under the screen
    - poor colours on the screen itself
    - poor battery life

    The software would probably be flaky and crash a lot

    You might find you couldn't do normal phone-type things like forwarding text messages, copy/paste text, adding your own ring-tones, sending an MMS, etc

    The Bluetooth would probably not work very well if it had been developed in a hurry.

    And I bet you it would drop a lot of calls.

    You'd be better spending a bit more money on the real thing.

    As a dual band 900/1800 MHz phone, it won't work with any carriers in North America anyway.
