It's those iPod, iPhone rip off merchants from China - Meizu

They tried to claim their phone design came first, but could never provide any documentation to back it up.

Strangely enough, the only pictures of their iPhone rip-off are dated after the iPhone launch at Mac World..

Go figure!

I've had columns and rows of icons, and even a main menu or dock at the bottom, of my professional industrial touchscreen apps for years. It's just a natural layout.

What we can't see is how far they take the touchscreen feel once you go past the main page. That's where the iPhone shines. (It never had to be back compatible with stylus or keyboard-only devices.)

What attracts me to the Meizu (and alas, I doubt very seriously it'll ever make it to the USA), is that it's supposed to run full Windows CE, not the cuted up / cut down Windows Mobile.

Windows CE 5 runs full Internet Explorer 6. Blows away the WM version.

Yeah but they have been pushing and pushing the release date back. Plus, there are no real hands on pics of it other that the renderings of it... And we all know what that generally means ;)
Engadget seems to be taking a very sceptical stance that it will actually come out now.

Looks like our rip-off manufacturer has some serious issues.

This from the Meizu forum:

I would NOT recommend anyone buy the Miniplayer M6.
The M6 has SERIOUS design and reliability flaws.

Some are lasting 1 day, 2 days, 2 months before dieing. Never to be recovered or live again.

The MiniPlayer M6 device is NOT ready for market.
Many people having bought them are VERY disappointed when they mysteriously quit working shortly after they get the M6.

Meizu Co. has no customer support organization.

This company is far from ready to participate in global trade.

Meizu should be forbidden to export their products out of China.

I am MORE than dissastified with MY M6 Miniplayer.

Meizu's response? NO response of any kind.

Definitely using some ideas from the iPhone, but the original beats them all.

I wouldn't buy that when I could buy the iPhone, of course, but I am not familiar with the availability of the iPhone all over Asia, so it could be a valid choice for a phone. Who knows?
