Forget Mac OS X. Here's the winPhone. Microsoft fell in love with a chinese Apple and they had a baby...
I'm sure it will be a lot better than the iPhone.

That's the Meizu MiniOne. Old news, but still nice if it comes out.

It'll never cross the Pacific, which is too bad, as it could force Apple to upgrade the iPhone to something truly "five years ahead".

More and more phones are going to at least 720x480 screens, which means you don't have to scroll around as much to see a webpage.

The MiniOne runs Windows CE, which is a decent OS. Plus, unlike the pocket browser in Windows Mobile, its big brother CE has IE 6.0.

Combine IE, large screen, with probably Flash and Java support, and you're actually talking about the "real internet" in your hand.

Nice? It's ugly as hell, and talk about plagiarism... There's got to be some international law against this.
That green makes u feel like throwing up.
I'm sure YOU'll buy one even if it's in Traditional Han Chinese on a perfect scrollable web page, but I'll wait for my updates and stick to iPhone.

So just change the wallpaper and icons. Heck, change the entire theme to look just like the iPhone, if that's all that floats your boat. Easy to do on other smartphones.

As for plagiarism, lots look like that. There are many examples of a grid of icons with a fixed set of buttons at the bottom, on touchscreen devices... for years. In fact, you'd really think that Apple would've come up with something more innovative. But the point is, it's just one of the most simple and efficient layouts... so a lot of designers use it.

Each to their own. I think what looks uglier is the Linux phone that some people think the iPhone ripped off ( I don't)...

Personally I love these two concept phones that predate Apple's debut:

Here's a weird new one, check out the video of its animated face:

And then there's the father of them all, which everyone ripped off:
