Gooapple, an iPhone clone with Android 2.2 Froyo under the hood and it is without a doubt one of the best iClones we’ve seen a while, right down to some decent hardware and exact iPhone 4 dimensions and thickness so you can even use genuine iPhone cases with it. The phone is built to the exact physical dimensions of the original iPhone 4 and has the same 9.3 inch thickness……….
Chinese copycats often target top smartphone one of the most copied handset of course if the iOS smartphone and apparently there is a knockoff of the iPhone 4 now available in China that is almost a perfect replica of Apple’s device and carries the rather strange name of Gooapple 3G. Those features include dual-SIM support and a TV feature. It’s unclear whether users can use both SIMs simultaneously on the device, so that the phone would ring if either phone numbers supported by either SIMs was reached, or if a user had to manually switch between the two SIMs though they can place two SIM cards in the phone at the same time. Also, while the device is said to support Android 2.2, it’s unclear if it will actually support Adobe Flash playback, which is a feature that’s been missing on iOS. Knock-offs have so far not successfully entered the U.S. by way of a major retailer due to legal implications behind trademark, copyright, and patent issues. For Sears to even list the phone is surprising. For those who may have had the opportunity to order in the brief time that the phone was listed, is kind of surprising. The iPhone 4 knock-off has been pulled, it seems that Apple’s lawyers may need to peruse Sear’s online portal as the retailer has another phone listing that blatantly rips off Apple’s design. This one is for a $76.99 white phone that resembles the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS.
