Cooli902: iPhone Clone Gets Slider Keyboard

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |

It’s not like there aren’t already tons of cheap Chinese iPhone clones out there, but this is definitely the first one I’ve seen with a full keyboard.


The badly named “COOLi902” looks just like a fat iPhone when closed, but the back slides open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. The COOLi902 features a dual cameras (one on the front and one on the back), Java support, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an obsolete analog TV tuner too.


It can play MP3 audio, and MP4, 3GP and AVI video files. There’s also a built-in FM radio. Despite the clear “16GB” marking on the back of the COOLi902, there’s only 19.5MB on-board, and a TF slot for up to 4GB of additional storage.


Oh yeah, it also only works on 900/1800MHz GSM phone systems, so if you live in North America, you’re out of luck (or extraordinarily lucky depending on how you look at things). The phone retails for 880 Chinese Yuan (appx. $129 USD), and more details and specs for the COOLi902 are available over at EEMOBI.

Maybe Apple will steal a page from these guys and some day add a full slider and dual camera option for the real iPhone.
