back to article iPhoney nano found, tested in Asia

While rumours of an iPhone Nano abound, anyone knocking about China or South-East Asia with a few quid spare can buy one right now. Well, up to a point. While the 'iPhone Mini' looks and feels like a Nano-style two-thirds scale iPhone -and even comes complete with an almost-Mac icon on the back - it has absolutely sod-all to do …

Apple ...

Are you watching??

A very good copy, I especially like the user-upgradable battery and the micro-SD card. With a larger screen to help keyboarding, or a palm-like pen area it could be worth it's money.

What's it like as a phone?

It's a knock-off...

but dual sim, micro SD and replaceable battery?! Not bad. I wouldn't mind those on my iphone. It might have a slightly crappy OS, but if they delivery a software update that allows, for instance, Opera mobile and a flash plugin, they might be cooking on gas.

Come on Jobs, where's my f***ing Flash plugin?!

Phoney phone and a phoney friend. Superb lateral thinking there in the product demonstration dept. I love it!

Important Question

The most important question that I can think of, that "friend" in the first picture, is that a guy or a ladyboy? Its not female it is?!

Hypocritical much?

Yay for blatant copyright infringement. All power to people who do little more than rip off someone else's idea to make a quick buck. Hooray for shoddy productry wrapped up to look like another companies product in the hope of conning some money out of the unwary.

Wait, what? You say that's supposed to be a bad thing? Oh I see, it's a bad thing /unless you're doing it to the iPhone, which we don't like/. Hmm.

8GB ?

"According to the back panel, the Mini comes with 8GB of storage but we couldn't find any way of accessing it - only the supplied 1GB SD card showing up in File Explorer"

Reminds me of a iPod I got from a street vendor while in China. Said 4GB on the box and player but was only 512MB. It was built well enough but they felt the need to falsely advertise it. Still worth the $5 though.

Maybe it was a typo or just chinglish. Like the Las Vegas DVD set, "Fast paged and sext!"

If someone could knock up a decent OS...

...they'd be away. Aside from the b'llocks looking UI it seems an 'ok' bit of hardware.

"iphoney and friend"

Does the "friend"come as an accessory ? And if so, how many of her slots are accessible ?

Maybe it's Adobe's fault - there's no Flash plugin for any 64bit browser yet...

So basically

It's a generic GSM phone (probably not even EDGE) with entry-level multi-meeja and a WAP browser, that's been given a nice (if somewhat derivative) UI.

Patent

Quick guys, take a patent on "a phone that looks somewhat like the iPhone, only smaller". Given the state of the US patent system, it would probably be granted. Then move your lawyers to Texas and wait.

Improve on the iPhone in many areas

Would get one if it didn't look like the iPhone (ugly design).
