We’ve seen plenty of dual-boot OS Shanzhai phones over past months, but not so many tablets. Viewsonic’s ViewPad 10 was a nice introduction to dual-boot tablets, but at US$ 400 it was a bit overpriced. Well there’s finally a dual-boot tablet with the right specs, the right price, and comes straight out of Shenzhen to boot.

The CiPhone Pro is one of the more anticipated Shanzhai iPhone 4 clones to be hitting the market soon, and for good reason. It ACTUALLY looks almost identical to the iPhone, and runs pretty damn smooth as well. Only thing that’s doesn’t look the same is the price tag — and we’re happy about that. Here’s a look at the CiPhone Pro side by side with the iPhone 4.

Shanzhai manufacturers have FINALLY realized that they’ve overplayed the whole “iPhone 4 clone” fad. To counter this they’ve begun to innovate, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much. This whole situation has a few upsides for me/you. The upsides are that soon enough I won’t have to see another damned iPhone 4 clone ever again! Another upside…I’ll get to start playing with things like this.

Although other smartphones are gaining popularity in China, the iPhone 4 hasn’t lost any steam. Good news for iPhone clones. They’re flying out of Shenzhen faster than Husain Bolt on steroids…and they’re better than ever. Introducing the CiPhone Pro, the latest decent attempt at a shanzhai iPhone 4. We’ve been watching this one for a few weeks, and can now finally bring you its full specs.
It’s become obvious that HTC’s popularity has begun to grow in China with the release of some of their latest smartphones on to the market here. This has been reflected in the amount of knockoff HTC phones we’re starting to see. Like with the iPhone 4, in China the more popular the product, the more clones Shanzhai manufacturers try to make. The HOT HD9 — a new HTC HD2 knockoff — is a perfect example of this trend. If the rumored specs are true, it packs a serious punch too.
We just came across a new phone called the hero H8 and unlike many clones it’s a definite WIN! It’s a clear copy of the the Nokia N8, but with a few changes (including the price tag) that make it worthy of 100% your attention. No? Only 85%? Well the hero H8 is priced at only US$ 119.99, and that’s un-subsidized. Have I got your attention now?
Apparently the Chinese customs have implemented a tax for individuals entering the mainland with iPhone 4s or iPads from Hong Kong. Because the iPhone and iPad are both priced lower in Hong Kong than in mainland China, many Grey Market retailers have been “smuggling” them in to make more of a profit. It’s clear that the authorities have caught on, but their new mandate is a bit over the top.
Does this phone look familiar to you? If so, it’s because it’s you’re
a geek awesome. one of the latest Shanzhai clones based on an HTC Legend, and it’s been released right on the heels of HTC’s own London release event. One of the great things about this phone is that it’s gotten a bit of leg-up on it’s Shanzhai siblings.
