China is awesome. Some enterprising manufacturer decided it would be a great idea to counterfeit the Nokia N9 and endow it features not available in the original.
This US$64 Nokia N9 knockoff certainly looks like the real deal. Available in four colours — pink, blue, green or black – the fake N9 packs dual full-sized SIM card slots and runs on a proprietary mutant OS that looks like a mish-mash of almost every mobile OS and UI under the sun. There are hints of Meego, iOS, HTC Sense, Symbian, Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry, and Samsung’s TouchWiz in this bad boy.
Other details like the processor and RAM are unknown but you get a 3.8-inch touchscreen pushing out lowly 240×400 pixel resolution (what? You were expecting the glorious CBD panel that you get in the real N9?) – and 1.3MP sensors for both the front and rear cameras. There’s also a microSD card slot, Bluetooth and FM radio.
On top of that, the camera can do 5fps burst mode and you get popular games like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and Real Racing all running on Java(!)
We’re pretty sure some of you are probably thinking, “RM200 for this almost real looking N9 fake, why not”.
For loads for pictures, head on over to after the jump.
