Nokia N8 and iPhone 4G got cloned ahead of launch (video)

Two of this year’s most expected smartphones, the Nokia N8 and the iPhone 4G, have already been cloned in China, months ahead of their official release.

The Nokia N8 clone looks pretty much exactly like the original. Of course, when it comes to specs, the fake N8 doesn’t deliver what the real handset does. The clone features a 3.2 inch touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels, Bluetooth, Music player, FM radio, a camera on the back and one on the front.

Chinese website 0755gf has it that this magnificent N8 costs only $105. Photos and a video preview of the fake N8 can be seen below:

The iPhone 4G clone tries to copy the original, but it fails, looking kind of cheap:

According to M8cool, the fake iPhone 4G costs around 780 CNY ($115).

    why can't they build thier phones like they do with thier cities/skyscrapers/trains/airports/roads and olympic stadiums? Being a chinese myself, it is upsetting to see my countrymen have no originality when it comes to electronics and automobiles!

    china has its own phones and originiality (oppo for one), this isnt a question of the state or people coming out with its own product that represents their prowess… this is strictly just sticking it to the corporate giants
