    Over the past week I've found two things that blatantly rip off the design of the original pre, and felt like sharing.

    The first is an mp3 player that I found on walmart, which can be seen here Ematic 4GB MP3 Video Player, Video Recorder, EM604VID - Walmart.com

    And the second is actually from the new Goldeneye remake on the Wii. The phone you use looks exactly like a pre http://thumbnails.truveo.com/0020/6A...E040_Large.jpg

    What do you think? Look pretty similar, eh?

    Take a look at a side profile of the nexus s, looks like a pre kinda.

    Hell the front of the nexus s looks like a pixi.

    While we're on the subject, have you seen the Torch?

    Those are funny! Companies know a cool design when they see one. I always laugh when I see low-end stuff copy the look of other companies. When I sold high-end audio/video we used to see this a lot with no-name companies from somewhere in Asia stamping out something that looks very similar to a famous piece of electronics with the lowest-end electronic components inside to barely make it work. But... people buy it. LOL

    The sad part is that the MP3 player has a better camera than most of us...

    Has anyone seen the Samsung "Smiley" on T-mobile? Not a true smartphone, but what I would call a "feature" phone that really looks similar to the Pre:

    It's kind of sad that it has many more features than the Pre does...

    Chinese knockoff phones generally mark a high resolution camera, but under the hood they are actually a 0.3M.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    This thread got me wondering just how many phones with a vertical/portrait QWERTY slider. In addition to the Chinese phone pictured above, here is what I came up with.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Smartphones:



    Palm Pre, Pre Plus, Pre 2, etc. (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T)




    BlackBerry Torch (AT&T)




    Motorola Spice (Android OS, not available in US, possibly will be available in Brazil)

    -------------------------------------------------------

    "Feature" Phones:



    Samsung Flight (AT&T)




    Samsung Strive (AT&T)




    Samsung T359 "Smiley" (T-Mobile)




    Pantech Jest (Verizon)

    -------------------------------------------------------------


    Have no idea what the build quality is on these devices or how much of an "oreo" effect they might have.

    If anyone knows of any others, you're welcome to add to the list.

    Cheers,
    Jim
