China: Where iPhone Nano Happens
From the makers of the popular TV Phones here in the Philippines, the Chinese mobile phone makers, CECT brings you, the iPhone Nano-t. The m188 looks really similar to the popular iPhone but in a shell measuring 3.5 x 1.9 x 04 inches (roughly the size of a credit card). You can't brush this not-an-iPhone phone too with it's 2.6 inch touch screen, GPRS connectivity, an MP3/video player, an FM tuner with scheduled recording (now you can listen to Mo Twisters rants and crazy ramblings on the radio any given time) and a cheap little 640 x 480 resolution camera. You can also use your postpaid plans and your Sun cellular unlimited capabilities on this one since, unlike the iPhone, this one has dual SIM card slots. We can just wait for our friends over in Greenhills to get their shipment and for probably something around Php 4,800 or 5,000 ($100 in BigBoxStore) you can smirk at your friends who's carrying a wider iPhone with your inferior rip-off.
And of course... to get the most out of this deal, I have to quote DJ Tado on this one... "lower your expectations." [via Gearcrave via Technabob]
