Chinese export 'iPhone'
Although the Apple iPhone is only scheduled to launch in its home region in June, a Chinese import/export firm has already produced multiple listings for the product, complete with photos and specifications that would seem to prove authenticity. Analysis suggests the opposite however, as in some cases there are substantial differences in the designs or interfaces of the phones. The more plausible entries could in theory be signs of early production, but it is more likely that the products are cheap imitations, given Apple's potential ongoing development problems.
