Meizu iPod touch clone

Details regarding Meizu's iPod touch look-a-like have materialized. The device will feature a 2.81" TFT screen with a 15:9 aspect ratio, and a native resolution of 480X288 pixels with 16-bit color. Like the iPod touch, Meizu's unit will respond to tactile feedback, and has the ability to playback H.264-formatted video at resolutions up to 720x480 at 30 frames per second, and M6 at up to 20 frames per second. It will also sport video out capabilities. 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities will be available. We previously reported that the device has been been tentatively named the M7 -- suggesting that it will be a bridge between the media-only M6 and the iPhone-influenced miniOne, also known as the M8. The latter is expected to launch in China before the end of the year with a slightly larger screen than the M7 at 3.3 inches and with full phone support, including 3G Internet access. Meizu's president declined to provide a release date for the M7, though the device is unlikely to be available before late 2008. [Images via Meizu Blog France]

    Dream on... of now, these devices exist purely as Photoshop images and unrealistic specsheets. Vaporware...

    apple should block it

    the chinese are getting very arrogant in their ability to literally clone products that they're doing nearly exact replicas of western products. they did it with a car (i forget which) that's so close to the original german manufacturers are pushing to block them from even showing the car in car shows.

    apple has already blocked an imac clone from being sold here so they should do the same with this product.

    I'm sure they'll eventually produce it, but right now these products are vapourware - be interesting to see if they can manage the software development within the promised timescale - I suspect skinning a Windows Mobile phone, or using FlashLite, won't deliver the required performance.

    we all know this thing will consist of a cellophane touch screen and a cheap plastic shell.

    only thing that will set this above the ipod is the "digi pet" that this device will feature.
