Meizu M8 Mini One at CeBIT

meizu m8 Meizu M8 Mini One at CeBIT

The Meizu M8 Mini One is as close to iPhone you can get from a decent company without actually buying the real thing. The M8 wasn’t represented at CES, so hopes were high for CeBIT which is going on as we speak.

The “prototype” (if you can call it that) that the people at Engadget got to play with was rather disappointing, since it was only a screen showing 3 different pics nothing more. Meizu claims the hardware is complete, and that what remains is the software part. Icons and UI are more or less final and will most likely be what the phone will launch with in China in August. Spec sheet after the jump.

well…this looks just like ipod….Meizu sucks w/ battery life and always seems to have something wrong w/ it. i wouldnt take chance and end up w/ mal-functuioning product.

Hey I’ve been looking for a fake iPod (because I am bitter and hate it’s over pricedness and the fact that Apple acts more like a country club than a company)and there’s about a million out there by a million companies…maybe you could sort out which ones to trust which ones are no good? They all look the same and a few are from questionable (chinese?) origin.

ipwner: This is not a fake iPod. It’s not even an MP3 player in that sense. It’s a phone with touch interface, that may look somewhat like the iPhone, and will compete with it. Yes, it’s the closest you can get to it, but Meizu is actually a good company, and I wouldn’t doubt if this device surpasses the trendy iPhone in terms of functionality.By the way: It’d be nice if you updated us with more news about the M8. MeizuMe has been staying up to date with it, and there have been changes in the UI design, and videos of a working (but not final) build.

FirstYou can’t force on other people your own rules and principles. Especially since you cannot embrace others’. So, please refrain from exporting your ideology just because you think it is right, does not make it so.SecondYou have to admit, at some point in time, that China became a super power, while your dear Apple/Hollywood/She-male society barely keeps its breath.Speaking electronics, all major electronics and appliances are, in fact, Made in Chine. Most of them are even engineered there. Maybe it’s Apple who stole some patents and the reality is confirming this.
