Fake Lamborghini Vertu phone from ChinaKnockoff phones must be pretty profitable for those who knock them off. After all, they just keep coming. This one is an oddball because there is no such thing as a Vertu Lamborghini phone, making this clone something of an “original”.

Thing is, it isn’t an authentic Vertu, and they don’t have the support of Lamborghini. But hey, some people just have to try to look classy with fake stuff.

The GSM smartphone features a 3.2-inch QVGA screen, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, dual SIM support, microSD slot, and video recording capabilities.

It will cost you $129 right now, on sale from its $400 MSRP. At least it has features. China, will you never learn? Combining two great things into one is clever and all, but when will you make a knockoff that really captures our hearts?

The TV98+ Spider-Phone from ChinaOh China, why do you hurt us so with your unlicensed cheap knock-off products? This one really hurts my eyes.

The device is from SCI Innovations and watchmaker Ulysse Nardin. The main design feature of the phone is a functional watch rotor.

Sanwa throat microphone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2009

Sanwa throat microphoneThroat microphones have enjoyed some popularity with the military and police, but they haven’t caught on with civilians yet. The Sanwa Throat microphone might be the one that catches the average user’s attention. At least Sanwa hopes so. It doesn’t hurt that it looks like a high-tech choker. Just bedazzle it and the ladies will dig it. It isn’t threatening looking.

It puts the microphone against your throat, eliminating most of the background noise and working in conditions where the background noise is loud. No word on pricing or availability yet. Even though it looks silly, it could catch on in a big way.
