Nokia Clone Devices Hitting New Lows

October 31, 2007 in Nokia Randomness

It’s nice to see that Nokia phone designs have made such an impact on the entire world that some lazy-arse Chinese manufacturers are now copying some familiar-looking phones for their PMP devices.

Nokia clones hitting new lows.

Nokia phone design clones are surfacing at an alarming rate.

Behold, the Yahee YHM-MPE02 and Golden Crystal KI-T12, courtesy of Engadget:

Two Nokia phone clones aren't even phones - they're PMPs.

Both the Yahee and Golden Crystal sport some tiny screens (Golden Crystal: 1.5″ display, Yahee: 2.2″), and other regular audio features (FM tuner, support for WMAs and…MP3s). But the real draws are the design. To which I say: of all the Nokia phones to rip, you picked the 7260, a Dinosaur Phone and in my book one of the worst-looking phones to ever grace the world.

I guess that makes the Yahee just that much more cutting-edge, with a rip of the 5200 XpressMusic phone. I mean, jeez guys. NokLa’s were bad enough.

Sadly, copycat designs aren’t just limited to the low-end products out there. Does the design of this 11 megapixel video camera ring any bells?

At least it still manages to look slick...

Manufactured by a company called Super Power Global, the DV-1100 provides not 1, not 2, but 12 functions for the price of 1:

“A 12-in-1 featured Digital Video Camcorder, Digital Still Camera, PC camera, MP3 Player, Mass Storage Device, Video Recorder, Video Player, Motion Stabilization, Motion Detection, Remote control, Game Boy, E-Book and AV In/Out function product “

It does look expensive though.

Totally ridiculous work by Chinese manufactures, i bought my Nokia 5800 originally from Nokia outlet and the next day i called my service provider for getting access for WLAN, guess what is the question the person asked me was that whether nokia 5800 is originally or chinese version. LOL
