    I'm surprised by Chinese men's reaction to the market. Shortly after iPhone 4's debut, so many counterfeits have been launched. So many functions and so cheap.

    Yes, it was obviously a joke - and funny!

    Links to iPad copies would only be welcome as parody. Just reading your reply, and post history makes these links seem highly suspect. Links deleted, and warning given.

    Those of us that work in manufacturing bloody know it. I don't call abusing of people's low wages a genius of technology, it's just that, social abuse.

    You really need to yell your head off to get your point across?

    Actually he was not yelling, per se'. If it was all caps he was. I think he just wanted to bold it to make certain we read his passion.

    Or not ~

    By the way, since all the real hardware is built there, by suicidal slave labor, the only real effort for the knockoff factories is to make their stuff look different enough to not get sued...

    I just googled China iPhone 4 and I was shocked to see the way they copied the iPhone......

    Dual SIM, radio, TV, MicroSD card, removable batteries, Android OS and they managed to fit all these into a phone the size of an iphone 4. But it looks slightly thicker than the iPhone 4.

    Guess the intellectual property rights do not apply in China....or if they even have these kinda laws in the first place.

    I really pity Jony Ive and his team who designed the iPhones and it gets ripped off within a couple of months.

    In fact, Japan was the biggest country of counterfeit tens of years ago, but it has become one of the world's technology leaders now.
