Meizu M8 delayed?

The M8 by Meizu -- designed as a Chinese answer to the iPhone -- may be experiencing unexpected delays, accounts suggest. Although unconfirmed, posting in the official Meizu forums indicates that the M8 will not be at next week's CeBIT expo in Germany, despite Meizu itself being scheduled to appear. The phone may even be delayed until the second or third or quarter of this year, despite recent hints that shipment might be imminent.

A delay could ultimately be to the benefit of the M8 however, as it is claimed that some form of multitouch technology will be introduced, which would allow closer imitation of the real iPhone. The primary obstacle is that Apple holds a unique patent on its form of multitouch, which may restrict what Meizu can accomplish.
