Palm Pre, now with iPhone home button

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2010

Can’t decide between a Palm Pre or an iPhone? Why not get both in this clone, which comes in the form of the Palm Pre, with the iPhone home button. On the hardware side, it features a QWERTY keyboard, that iPhone home button and an operating system that tries to pass itself off as iOS.

It also supports dual SIM, with two cameras, a 3″ touchscreen display at 240 x 400 resolution, a microSD memory card slot, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It’s compatible only with GSM networks.

iRobot iPad clone

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2010

The M003 Apad, a.k.a. iRobot, is a 7-inch, Android-OS iPad clone that costs $199.99 and is now available for shipping. The Apad supports Google Maps, HD video support and even has an integrated integrated webcam. There’s also 2GB of built-in storage though SD cards are supported.

Something tells me that this device won’t sell over a million in it’s first month, though many would buy this one just to get an iPad alternative.

MyTouch 3G clone runs Windows Mobile 6.5

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

MyTouch 3G clone runs Windows Mobile 6.5We’ve seen plenty of knock-off cell phones, whether they be iPhone ripoffs to Nokia clones Blackberry doppelgangers. Let’s face it, they are fun to spot and in many cases easy to laugh at. Take this T-mobile MyTough 3G (HTC Magic) “inspired” phone, for instance.

The design looks like the MyTouch 3G, but this thing is running Windows Mobile 6.5. Some other features include Wifi, GPS, and bluetooth. And as an added insult, it even comes with a pair of headphones that are clearly Apple earbud rip-offs. If for some reason you are interested in rocking this, it’s a steep $288.

Darkside Pac Man stapler

Darkside Pac Man staplerCheck out this Pac-Man stapler from the folks at Panik Design, who call it “Stap Man.” Traditionally Pac-Man is yellow, so we can only assume that this is some Pac-Man from a darkside universe. Hey, between the name and the lack of yellow, they’ve avoided any copyright infringement.

It will cost you $26 and it’s hard to imagine that you’ll be able to resist making wakka-wakka sounds as you staple. It also comes in white. Lame. It looks pretty hungry, so staple away.

Kindle 2 Cinese knock off spottedIf you’ve been waiting with bated breath for a proper Kindle 2 knock-off, the Chinese have answered your prayers with this one that looks just like the Kindle. The device will arrive in Japan by the end of 2009, and the price tag will be around $210. The device will have a built-in cellular modem with SIM card.

The company, Peking University Founder, offered no further specs, but we would really like them to explain just what the hell their name means. Shady gadgets, shady names. I suppose they want to make you feel safe, as if the founder of Peking University endorses this thing.

Coby’s MP600: A $20 Nano competitor

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

Coby’s MP600: A $20 Nano competitorCoby’s MP600 Video MP3 Player takes some obvious inspiration from the iPod Nano. It features a 1.44″ LCD screen that will play back all of your MTV video files, JPG photos, read text files as well as MP3 and WMA files. You’ll also get FM radio.

The best part is that they didn’t clone the price, which is just over $20 for the 2GB version. The 4GB version will cost you $29.99. So if you’re looking for a cheap alternative for the Nano, you might want to check it out.

Vaino: A Vaio P knock off

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2009

Vaino: A Vaio P knock offThe Sony Vaio P just came out and already it has sprouted a clone, the Vaino. At first glance, the Vaino seems to have better specs in certain areas, including a 10.2″ display, a faster Atom processor, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a 1.3 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi connectivity and a multi-format memory card reader.

But what it comes down to is that no one wants to be carrying around such an obvious knock off. It ruins your tech cred. They should have just released the device under it’s own brand. One day maybe they will learn.

3DiJoy FlingPC Motion Controller for Asian babies

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2008

3DiJoy FlingPC Motion Controller for Asian babiesNintendo really hit the mark with the Wii. Now all they have to do is sit back and laugh at every lame attempt by others to capitalize on their motion controller. Take this thing for instance. 3DiJoy has unveiled its FlingPC motion controller that is basically an accelerometer-equipped Bluetooth remote and a USB dongle.

For your $99 you’ll get ten custom (and rest assured crappy) 3D games. Just look at the image above. Asian babies love Wii knock-offs. They are a cheap gateway to the overpriced highs they’ll get from higher quality game systems once they reach puberty. This thing is compatible with both Linux and Windows platforms, but somehow we don’t see a large market outside of the Asian baby demo.

China produces knock off flip iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 27th, 2008

China produces knock off flip iPhoneWe’ve seen our share of knock-offs coming out of China, but this one is downright funny. They’ve taken the iPhone and turned it into a clamshell style phone. Funny thing is, it resembles a MacBook more then an actual iPhone.

It is attractive with the brushed aluminum casing and the iPhone look inside, but I’m guessing that performance isn’t up to par. Surprisingly, the camera is 3-megapixels, more than on most mid to low-end phones. It also sports a 2.6-inch display with a resolution of 240 x 320. It’s pretty small at 105 x 53 x 17mm and about 110 grams. One giveaway that this is a crap-gadget are the LED lights under the apple. I guess that’s the best they could do.
