  • Cloned iPhone 5c Launching in Japan


    Illustrating once again that an iPhone clone can still hold its own in the global smartphone market, a Japanese company expects to find success with a new Android-powered smartphone that looks awfully familiar.

    On first glance, individuals holding the newest smartphone from Japan's Iosys appear to be tinkering with a new iPhone 5c. But they're not. It's just the new ioPhone5.

    The Android phone that's a dead ringer for Apple's low-end iPhone is launching across Japan this week. Local reports indicate that, aesthetics aside, when you look under the hood, it's clear you're not dealing with an Apple product.



    Nonetheless, plenty of consumers may be content with the ioPhone5's 480x854 resolution display, 512MB of RAM, a dual-core Mediatek chip, 4GB of flash storage, and a 2MP camera.

    The price tag? About $150.

      Thats just poor taste. Blatant rip offs should NEVER be tolerated. WIth those specs it should be $.99 haha! Although the specs are reminiscent of the first iPhone :]

      I sense a disturbance in the force or in this case a lawsuit from Apple!

      I'm impressed it even got to market. It looks like a 5c, has an almost identical name but uses a crappy underpowered android OS. I think Apple give these cases to their baby lawyers to test their killing skills.

      Is it just me or did the phone appear to be stuck/glued to some guys head about halfway through that clip. I especially like the office chair presentation carousel and the Olivia Newton John soundtrack used in this ad...I'm feeling swayed...what were those specs again?

      Thank you! Somebody that finally sees the reality of it all it's the same specs as an iPhone with a better camera and is plastic so they could easily have more color options. But even though it's plastic, it still has a steel frame inside
