Nokia 5800 XpressMusic got cloned – it just had to happen

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is not yet commercially available, but that didn’t stop some Chinese phone producer to clone it. 

Called Li 5800, the 5800 XpressMusic copycat looks very amateurish when compared to the original. Feature-wise, the fake 5800 is not that bad, but it still falls behind the real thing.

For example, Li 5800 has a 3 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of only 240 x 400 (while the resolution of the true 5800’s screen is of 360 x 640 pixels).

Perhaps a good thing about Li 5800 is the fact that it has some sort of Mobile TV receiver, but we can’t possibly say if that functions properly.

Obviously, Li 5800 does not run on Symbian S60, but on some Chinese-made OS.

The price of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic clone is not known, but it should be way lower than the one of the original (about $350, or $600 in Russia).    

I say we’d better wait for the real 5800, although most of the markets will only get it starting early 2009.
