Oval iPhone Spotted in China
April 18th, 2010
I can say with a high degree of certainty that this is not the new iPhone 4G.
Nope, in fact, this strange oval phone is actually called the “Leady Apple.” I assume that the bad Chinese translation was supposed to say “Lady Apple”, given it’s girlish figure. The backside of these curvacious phones both have Apple logos and say “iPhone,” so they must be legit, right?
From what I can tell, these phones have all the standard features you’ve come to expect from every cheap Chinese mobile these days, including built-in games, media playback, a digital camera and an FM radio. And thanks to a super shiny mirror-finish screen, it looks like something that could help you put your makeup on, too.
While I’m certain that Apple had nothing to do with these, I do find the fact that they managed to create a round display kind of slick. Although surfing the web and watching movies probably sucks with the corners cut off.
