Way back in August, there was some speculation about a new Meizu player dubbed the M8 that supposedly ran a version of the Windows CE operating system on a 533MHz ARM11 processor. But when the rumor didn’t pick up any speed after that, we shelved it.
But now, five months later, guess who’s back. This time sporting a no-way-is-that-real iPhone look, the M8 is equipped with a 3.3-inch VGA display (720 x 480), 3-megapixel digital camera, A/V outputs, and a dock connector. Oh, and did we mention that it’s now a GSM and 3G cell phone? Riiiight.
The one bit that’s stuck, though, is the ARM11 processor and WinCE (identified as version 6.0). So even though we’re still filing this under “rumor” for the time being, we do believe that something unlike Meizu’s other players is afoot.
