Everyone loves the Chinese, since they produce most of our crap. And most of that crap are imitation of that crap that are actually made in China. Anyway, we just found a store that is showcasing this crap to make a quick buck – well, it’s obvious they are fake. But what gets me are the perplex features that they claim to offer…
First of, its the Shake to Control GSM Quad-band IP001; which says that it’s “especial function” is to “Shake to elect song, ditheringge elect motif picture”. I was like WTF? Anyway, it also supports MP3 and MPEG4 playback, and is quad band. It also features (according to its description):
iPhone style cellular phone, Quad-band PDA Cell phone, Bluetooth, A2DP, JAVA , Outlook, Email, MSN，shake control, we will give you 1GB Card for Free,3.5-inch TFT color screen Integrated 2.0mega-pixel CMOS camera.
As well, the team over at Gearlog came across this knockoff and found some other ones too, like this one – the M88+ Phone. This phone (see right) looks like the iPhone at the front, right? Well, it happens to be running on Windows Mobile 6.0. The features? Well they are:
