Video: Mini Nseries! Attack of the Clones

April 23, 2009 1 comment

These first three aren’t your usual dopplegänger Nokia imitations. These are cute tiny versions of them!

1. The Mini N95 8GB, complete with dual sliding mechanism.

2. The Mini Nokia N96, also with dual sliding mechanism

3. The Mini Nokia N83, with touchscreen, even though there’s no N83 yet!

The UI of these Clones, although looking a little temperamental on occasion looks surprisingly fluid. They all have the accelerometer, to change orientation of the screen and to switch music tracks.

I’m not sure about the quality of materials, but they look so nice and shiny! Look at the N78, it’s got a bigger 2.8″ touch screen and a built in hidden telescopic antenna for live TV! No DVB-H which we’ll no longer see in Nokia phones as that division has been sold off and acquired by Wipro.

4. Nokia N78 Clone – with touch screen

I’d love to have standard TV on my phone. Check out this mini Apple iPhone 3G version.

5. Apple iPhone 3G – with analogue TV

Or for actual digital TV, a sony ericsson variety:

6. SE and Digital TV.

These clones are clustering around the $100 range. That’s really good considering the list of features – although the reliability is yet to be proven. It may last a week and could end up being a really bad purchase.

You can check out what else they have on their website.

[No I am not affiliated with this site, I’m just intruiged by what these clones can offer in terms of price:features ratio.

Cloning Labs cross an Apple iPhone with a Nokia N96. Result: the NokiPhone N3000i

Here’s a transgenic, chimeric, phone clone, complete with aesthetics of the iPhone and even the dual sliding mechanism of the N96 (at least that’s the Nseries it most resembles).


Host of features include your uninspiring but seemingly value for money: 3.2″ 16:9 widescreen touch screen, 2mp camera (which is apparently equivelant to 5 PIXES; yes pixes.), Dual speakers, Dual Sim, MP4/Avi/MP3 playback.

You can pick up this chimeric handset for $129.99 at via PMPtoday

For a REAL Nokia combined with iPhone deal, you could look closer to the N97. 😛
