Faux iPods Pop Up In China

While the iPhone will launch exclusively in the US this Friday Americans aren't the only gadget lovers drooling over the prospect of having a snazy touchscreen iPod/cell machine. Brokenhearted over the fact that the iPhone won't be sold in China for some time, a small army of "iPhone copycats" have popped up to fill the void.

At first look the Meizu Minione appears to be the fraternal twin to the iPhone, whereas the knockoff "iPhone" (seen at right) has complete paternal twin status. The Equinux blog found that once turned on, the "iPhone" features a watered down replica of the real phone - two-megapixel camera for photos and movies in MPEG4 format, two SIM-Cards, which you can switch between on the fly, WAP browser, 64MB of built-in memory, 256 MB micro SD Card in an expansion slot and stereo speakers on the front face and two additional speakers on the back that boast “3D Sound.”

Major downer? The touchscreen is controlled by a stylus, which as Shanghaiist points out is sooo 2006.
