The Meizu M8 for M9 trade-in program that begun on May 10th seems to be a success as a member of Meizu Me, the popular Meizu forum, has received their brand new M9. This is pretty exciting news, and a huge PR and reputation boost for Meizu which is quickly becoming one of the best and most trusted cell phone brands in China.

The development of Android as a mobile gaming OS has been on the up and up, which I’m happy about. Until now though, I’d never seen a supposedly dedicated gaming Android phone that actually had an potential. Well it seems that developers just needed a bit of assistance from our good buddy alcohol to come up with a brilliant design.

For those serious Android and Google fans out there like myself, there’s really only one option when buying a new phone, and that’s Google’s own Samsung Nexus S. If you’ve been following Gadgets Republic a while you’ll have seen me profess my obsession with Anroid, but I never mentioned that I personally own the Samsung Nexus S. If I were allowed to use only one word to describe my feelings for the device, it would be LOVE. Shanzhai developers have finally gotten around to making a knockoff, but the question remains….have they done the original justice?

We’ve all heard of the Apple Peel 520 and it’s ability to turn the latest generation iPod Touch in to an iPhone 4. Well the guys over at the Shanghaiist have found a sweet knockoff of the Apple Peel that not only has the Peel 520′s transforming abilities, but adds triple SIM card compatibility as well. Personally, I’m not sure what the obsession with multi-SIM compatible phones are but it’s still a pretty cool feature.

Hey all, as I’m sure you’ve noticed the number of posts over the last week and a half or so have been super low. I tweeted last week to let everyone know that the server was being funny, and I was totally unable to upload any photos or update posts. This week the interwebz doesn’t seem to want to work at home, and I’ve been able to get any time away from my regular responsibilities to get updates up. I decided that I’ve had enough and will be spending the rest of today at Starbucks posting till my fingers bruise or my little netbook blows up, so stay tuned!
The Shanzhai developers in Shenzhen are known for creating some pretty excellent looking HTC knockoffs, but Windows Phone 7 has never gotten any love. Well with this latest HTC HD7 knockoff they’ve created a Windows Phone 7 look-a-like UI for the Windows 6.5 operating system it actually runs on. It may only look like a WP7 phone, but under the hood it sure is built like one.
