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.

Woz suggests Apple make Android phones

Woz suggests Apple make Android phones

With the iPhone already having done quite a bit of business in the United States and internationally over the past few years, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke up this week about how the company should - but probably won't - delve into Android. Suggesting that there's nothing holding Apple back from creating an Android device technically, Wozniak speaks with Wired on how Apple could enter a secondary market alongside the iPhone.

Nexus 5 MEMS Lytro camera code a case of mistaken identity

Nexus 5 MEMS Lytro camera code a case of mistaken identity

Through some heavy digging in files sourced from a real-deal Nexus 5 in the wild, sources this week have turned up mention of what they believe was MEMS camera technology in this next-generation smartphone. Using files uncovered by Myce, the folks at Android World appear to have discovered the exact camera module (or at least part of it) that'll be used in Google's next Nexus smartphone. The Sony image sensor imx179 appears in these files, leading the blogsphere to believe - again, sourcing Android World - that they've found a perfect connection to MEMS technology - also used in the Lytro camera.

Samsung smartphone security exploit gets official fix “quickly”

Samsung smartphone security exploit gets official fix “quickly”

A software venerability in the Samsung Exynos processor family that resides in your Galaxy Note II and international Galaxy S III has had an official response from the manufacturer today assuring a quick fix. This software update fix will be coming down relatively soon (we hope) as the possible security exploit would allow a malicious program to access the innards of your smartphone via its RAM and either destroy the device's contents or harvest them for its very own.

iPhone 5 mini dock connector photographed with microUSB

iPhone 5 mini dock connector photographed with microUSB

Several photos have appeared in the wild this morning showing off what very much appears to be the rumored iPhone 5 dock connector USB cable. This cable's head is compared to a microUSB cable head, the most common cable head in the mobile device industry today. These cables have been shown to be significantly similar - so much so that we'll certainly be grabbing twice in our barrel of cords once this new head appears, that's for certain.

Samsung Galaxy S III tipped for quad-core processor

Samsung Galaxy S III tipped for quad-core processor

We’re going to tip our collective hats to Samsung: there hasn’t been another product in recent memory (other than the iPhone) that has had such a large amount of rumors and hype. A myriad of different specs have been suggested, as well as various renders and leaks of questionable authenticity. While we heard the other day that the Galaxy S III would be a “incremental” upgrade, The Verge has new information from sources familiar with the matter.
