N933 Flip Phone Looks Like a Communicator and an iPhone Had a Baby

by Paul Strauss

I’m not sure if Gene Roddenberry’s estate or Apple’s legal department will be going after the makers of this odd little mobile phone first. The N933 smartphone takes the basic ideas of an iPhone and a traditional flip-phone and mashes them together.

Created by some no-name Chinese manufacturer, the gold-toned N933 looks just like a basic old-school cellphone when closed, but when you flip its lid open, it reveals a 3-inch touchscreen panel, along with an array of apps designed to look like those on an iPhone.

Under the hood, the phone is actually pretty ordinary, with a 320×240 display, and no on-board storage, although you can add up to 2GB of storage with (presumably) an MicroSD card. There’s also a digital camera, but at just VGA resolution, it’s not even worth mentioning. Damn, I mentioned it.  The product description also mentions a full QWERTY keyboard, but I surely don’t see one hiding in there, unless it’s of the on-screen variety. Oh yeah, there’s an FM radio in there too, but unless it receives Pandora, I don’t really care these days. While it does have dual SIM card slots, it only supports the GSM 900 and 1800MHz bands, so it won’t work in North America.

If you live anywhere else on the planet, and want to give one a whirl, head on over to Chinagrabber, where you can grab an N933 for $125.99 (USD).
