If Apple’s litigation team thinks they have a pretty good case against Samsung for violating trade dress, wait until they get wind of this new iPhone-imitating Android device.
While blatant iPhone rip-offs certainly aren’t anything new, the fact that a major U.S. retail chain like Sears is selling them is kind of surprising. Even though the device touts some big features, iDB has a pool going on just how long this device remains available…
There’s no visible brand name in the Sears.com ad, nor are there currently any reviews of the product. However, the device does sport a 3.5 inch capacitive multi-touch display and dual SIM card slots, so it’s likely to appeal to someone.
Folks who have jailbroken iPhones running apps like iAndroid, in search of the Apple-look-with-an-Android-feel combo might really dig something like this. At $263.99 though, I think I’ll stick with the original.
How long until this device gets pulled? Would you buy something like this?
UPDATE: Well that didn’t take long, did it? Just a few hours after we posted the article, Sears pulled the product. Go figure.
UPDATE 2: It’s been moved to a different page, but it’s still on Sears website.
