    Ugggh. My brother is buying a fake iPhone. I just don't get why people just don't go out any buy the real thing. The fakes can't compare to a real iPhone. They will always just be wanna bes.

    That looks interesting, but looks like a scam, has anyone bought one of these yet?

    If I had no regard for money, I'd pick up one of these just to see what it can do.

    Yuck. Looks like a decent replica of an iPhone on the front, but the back looks like they slapped on a 1970s era pocket calculator.

    well, if anyone wants to put a collection together, i live around the corner, i'll go buy it and give the feedback on it, and then pass it around via UPS.

    Right? What is up with that? I can't believe someone would actually buy it.

    As been said a million times, the knock offs:

    - do NOT run the iphone os
    - cheap material
    - low capacity battery
    - mostly not quad band (if not quad band, does not work with all gsm carriers)
    - crappy processor -> slow program response
    - no multi touch on most models
    - no touch on many models, many require using stylus or buttons
    - no wifi
    - low resolution camera (often called 2MP, but can be crappy VGA sensor interpolated)
    - odd looking
    - difficult to use (unintuitive software)
    - no itunes support (no smart playlist, etc)
    - no warranty
    - no support
    - no apple app store

    Wow, this is really funny, and the guy is selling them at 200 each, for that price you can get a real iPhone, albeit a 3G, but come on. He can't honestly believe that he's going to be able to sell these now.
