    It looks like they are selling apple 'style' ipods and touches.:rolleyes:
    The 'touch' has a stylus and chinese writing on it.

    Too good to be true I think.

    Go for it... but it is definitely not an Apple iPod Touch.

    You can get the same clone product on ebay - there appears to be quite a market out there or people just aren't reading the listings carefully...

    See, the word clone implies that it's a similar product, but these are not similar except for certain looks of the proudct.

    In terms of construction, functionality, quality, and warranty, these knockoffs can't be compared.

    For example some big windows lover at my company bought an iPhone knockoff (because the knockoff lists "more features"). It's made of cheap plastic, uses stylus instead of touch and it's dead after 6 weeks. LOL. You get what you paid for.
