Meizu M8 takes on iPhone in WiFi web browsing video test

Meizu M8 takes on iPhone in WiFi web browsing video test

The Meizu M8 may be a dead-ringer for the iPhone's physical and GUI design, but is it still a decent handset in its own right?  We've already seen one review, now Chinese site Zol.com.cn has put the M8 through its paces in what most owners will be using it for: full-screen web surfing.  Can the M8 render pages as quickly as Apple's smartphone?

Meizu M8 iPhone-clone gets reviewed

Meizu M8 iPhone-clone gets reviewed

First the unboxing, now the review.  Meizu's M8 wannabe-iPhone still isn't quite within the grasp of buyers, but IT168 have reviewed an early sample and, despite the delay, come away impressed.  It might never have been blessed by Steve Jobs, but the 3.4-inch touchscreen handset - with a 3.2-megapixel camera and either 8 or 16GB of onboard memory - seems to have its own charms.

Meizu M8 unboxed

Meizu M8 unboxed

Meizu's M8 cellphone is growing to be something of a legend: ostensibly an iPhone clone, a fact hotly disputed by Meizu themselves, its arduous journey to market has taken the best part of a year.  Now, PConline have unboxed what we're told is the final retail packaging, in preparation for the M8's mass production on December 8th.

Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

So the rep from Meizu, much like the company as a whole, continues to profess their design didn’t come from the iPhone, that their design was completed some time towards the end of 2006, well before the iPhone was released. They still don’t mention anything about the software though, which is almost definitely stolen from Apple.

Meizu M8 MiniOne hitting stateside for CES

Meizu M8 MiniOne hitting stateside for CES

In case you’ve forgotten, the M8 is the device that works like an iPhone, now looks like an iPod Touch. It also has storage capacities from like 2GB all the way up to 16GB, and I think it even has 3G, the stats aren’t really set in stone yet so it’s hard to tell.

Personally, I’m cool with a device that’s just close to the iPhone, sure, it might piss some people off, but I’d be really cool with it if when it lands it does have 3G, preferably EV-DO, but that’s just me. Anyways, Meizu will apparently be showing off the device in January at CES and then plans to begin selling it stateside by February.

Meizu M7 is supposed to be iPod Touch killer

Meizu M7 is supposed to be iPod Touch killer

When will Apple, or more precisely its competitors, ever stop. The iPod came out so long ago, and even to this day it’s the bar with which you have to compete, every new MP3 player that comes out is an iPod killer. There is no Zune killer (maybe because it did a pretty good job on its own) there isn’t a Sansa killer, only a bunch of iPod killers.

Well that’s the goal of the Meizu M7, to be the iPod Touch Killer. The specs include a 2.81” touch screen at 480x288 pixels with a 15:9 ratio. The actual device dimensions are 89x48x7.3 millimeters. It can play H.264 at 720x480 a 30fps via its TV out port.

Another clone from Meizu?

Another clone from Meizu?

We all know Meizu for their phone that they admit was greatly influenced by the iPhone. They've got another product coming out that bears a strong resemblance to an Apple product. Look familiar?

The M3 Music Card looks an awful lot like the 1st generation iPod nano. The main difference in looks is the touchstrip in place of the scrollwheel.

Reportedly it will support a wider variety of formats than the nano. Some of these include FLAC, OGG and XviD AVI files. Expect to see these for approximately $65 in China around the 20th of this Month.

MediaTek Pump Express Plus takes on Qualcomm’s Quick Charge

MediaTek Pump Express Plus takes on Qualcomm’s Quick Charge

Cue inappropriate jokes. MediaTek is really putting the heat on Qualcomm, more so after seeing a chink in its armor courtesy of Samsung. Just recently it tried selling the idea of a three-tier deca-core mobile processor even while Qualcomm has just gotten started with 8 cores. Now with its own "Pump Express Plus", it is taking aim at Qualcomm's fast charging technology, Quick Charge 2.0, that is slowly snaking its way into the latest flagships and quickly becoming a much wanted feature in smartphones.

Ubuntu-bearing BQ Aquaris E4.5 now available in Europe

Ubuntu-bearing BQ Aquaris E4.5 now available in Europe

The promise of a smartphone powered by Ubuntu, one of the most popular Linux distributions, is quite an old one but it seems that 2015 is finally the year when it all takes flesh. First among the promised batch of Ubuntu phones, bq unveiled its Ubuntu-flavored Aquaris E4.5 at MWC 2015 last February. Now that very same device is available for purchase, but limited only to the European Union. Late to the market and limited availability, Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, might have an even harder time breaking into the space than, say, Firefox OS.

Ubuntu Phone delayed again to next year

Ubuntu Phone delayed again to next year

It seems that Samsung isn't the only one experiencing delays in getting a new player in the mobile market out of the woodwork. Canonical, the commercial company behind the open source Linux-based Ubuntu OS has been quoted to have said that its much-hyped Ubuntu Phone won't be announced until early 2015. And that's just the announcement of the availability and not the availability itself, which can, of course, be delayed repeatedly, as Samsung's dance with its own Tizen OS has proven.
