Wphone: iPhone Clone Tries to One-Up Apple’S Original

by Paul Strauss

The WPhone is a new mock phone from China that’s loaded up with all sorts of stuff that you don’t find even in a real iPhone.


Sure, it’s a touchscreen phone and media player. And yeah, it’s got Bluetooth and WiFi support. But it’s also got a couple of tricks up its sleeve that even Apple’s latest wonderphone doesn’t have. There’s support for dual SIMs so you can switch between two providers. And since it’s a Quad-Band GSM phone, it’s guaranteed to work worldwide. And what was the last time an iPhone ran Java apps or browsed the web with Opera? And it even supports MMS messages out of the box! There’s also a little bonus on the back of phone – from the pictures it looks like there’s a flash next to the camera lens. Oh, and did I mention it’s got two cameras? Yep, there’s a crummy 0.3 megapixel one on the front for video chat, and a 1.3 megapixel one on the back for regular photos and videos. There’s even an analog TV tuner built in – which is the last thing I need these days.


Of course, at just $159.99 (USD) for an unlocked phone, they had to skimp on a few features that you can only get if you buy the real deal. For instance, there’s no GPS, compass, or accelerometer. And I think the “32GB” on the back is just part of the phony factor. According to the specs, there’s no on-board storage, and it comes with a 2GB microSD (TransFlash) card for memory. Oh well, what do you expect you cheap bastard?

If you want to get your hands on a WPhone, head on over to Chinagrabber.

    It would be interesting what OS it runs. For Windows Mobile it is too cheap I think.

    i just thought id write a quick reply considering i have one of these. it does have a flash, but can also be used a torch using the toggle button just above the the volume buttons. i am fairly certain it holds up to 16gb – but not sure. also it does have an accelerometer but, theres no real “apps” that will work with it – its just for switching your background and the tracks you are listening to and other random things. i live in australia and i only get one channel with the tv – in my area we do still use analog.

    but even so; almost every time i go searching i find something new about this phone i didnt know before. which also had no acknowledgment in the instructions manual.
    all in all – i’d rather an iphone… but this phone is definitely worth its price.

    I just got the wphone. I would rather the iphone (but this phone is just a temp because i broke my old one and my dad bought this and another “iphone clone” to see what they were like and to see if they were any good)
    It’s an ok phone but some things need working out (just the graphics and touch screen)
    but all in all it is worth the money and its pretty cool once you get it working :)
