Meizu M9 gets OK for China

Meizu wrapped up a positive week with word that it was cleared to sell the upcoming M9. A network license from the State Ministry of Industry and Information Technology was considered the last barrier to sale in the country. Major cities in the country should get the Android phone by Christmas.

Other countries are likely to get the M9 in time, but the company hasn't detailed those plans so far. It won't likely directly sell in the US due to its copyright battle with Apple. While Apple's claims in China might have been rendered invalid, the American company is likely to have a stronger legal case in its own country. Imports may be an option.

The phone is stylistically further away from the iPhone than the M8 but still borrows some technical similarities, including the use of a 1GHz processor and a 3.5-inch, 640x960 touchscreen. It ships with a heavily customized version of Android 2.2 but could get Android 2.3 in the future. [via MeizuMe]

    Just another clone....

    unfortunately many people will buy it, compare it to the iPhone, bag how expensive the iPhone is in comparison and not even realise this is a copy by a company that is too afraid to forge its own way forward in the industry and can only piggy back on the back of the hard work of others who spend billions in the industry in the form of research and development, marketing, industry negotiations and so on.

    I'd respect them and their products if they actually could add something to the industry they choose to compete in and even employ some of the software/hardware engineers (beyond the cloners) who work in the industry.
