Meet the One-China Z500M, Nokia N9 And Lumia 800 Knockoff
Stephen Elop was proud of the “head-turning” designs on the Lumia 900, borrowed mainly from the Lumia 800, which inherited its looks from the Nokia N9 MeeGo-powered device. Looks like not only the Nokia CEO found the design appealing.
What you see in the picture is the One-China Z500M. If you think it looks similar to the Lumia 800/N9, that’s because it probably does. Many knockoffs are originating from China and that’s where they’re usually found but this one was reportedly taken to CES. It runs Android and if you like the nice buttons on the bottom as well as the exceptional job on the front facer at the top (not to mention the innovative design), it will cost 159 EUR (around $200).
Needless to mention that if this was an iPhone copy (or resembled the iPhone (as much or as little) as the Galaxy S line from Samsung does), the phone would have already been gone from display. Instead, it is being shown off in different colors. Jokes aside, Nokia, please do something!
