Meizu M8 Captured On Film: Realer Than Big Foot But Not Nearly As…

Remember the Meizu M8 » 9/02/08 9:30am 9/02/08 9:30am? It was iPhone clone, the one that we were all excited to see...back in 2007. Now that Apple's added 3G to the mix, expanded storage and lowered the price with contract, the prospect of a (still unreleased) 8GB iClone has gotten a whole lot less enticing. But just for those who thought Meizu…

Meizu M8 MiniOne UI Tweaked, Again

A whole week almost elapsed without there being any rework to Meizu's M8 MiniOne UI, which is so shocking, I almost fell of my chair. Thankfully, it was not to be, as some new images are making the rounds on the old tubes.
Update: Apparently, this is just a mockup by the guys at CNMO and not at all a UI refresh.… » 3/22/08 8:30pm 3/22/08 8:30pm

Cops Shut Down Meizu's CeBIT Booth for Ripping Off Apple

It looks like we weren't the only ones not impressed with Meizu's M8 iPhone ripoff - its booth at CeBIT was shut down by the local police and all products and promotional materials were removed. Yikes! Apparently some other booths were shut down as well, as this was part of a wider initiative to protect patent and… » 3/05/08 1:10pm 3/05/08 1:10pm

Meizu M8, Something You Burn in a Paper Bag on Someone's Porch

Engadget scored some time with a Meizu M8 mini One prototype board at CeBIT. And even while this demo is not constrained by the size of the M8 final hardware, the experience leaves a lot to be desired. The touchscreen has major, persistent lag issues (though Meizu claims it's a demo hardware issue) and, as you'll… » 3/04/08 9:59am 3/04/08 9:59am

Meizu Patents the Knock-Off

The Meizu M8 may not seem like the most...original concept on the market, but that hasn't stopped the company from pursuing a patent on the device. Filed back in February 2007, Meizu proclaimed to the world that, sure, their M8 may be just an iPhone clone. But clones have rights too, dammit! [meizume via wired] » 1/22/08 9:55am 1/22/08 9:55am

Meizu MiniOne M8 iPhone-Clone Triples Buttons, Tries to Patent It...in …

Meizu's CEO dropped an interesting nugget about the hardware of the highly anticipated MiniOne M8. Apparently, the smartphone will feature three physical buttons, as oppose to a single one right in the center. That means it will differ from another phone that it bears a striking resemblance to. AND they're trying to… » 12/29/07 6:00pm 12/29/07 6:00pm

Meizu's CEO let everyone know (via a forum posting, no less) that their first Meizu M8 MiniOne version will be the 8GB mode, and it will ship for about $400. That's a $70 increase from the previous price data, but is much better than the totally off figures we saw last month. Good news, other models with 3G/3.5G… » 8/03/07 1:30pm 8/03/07 1:30pm

Meizu MiniOne Out Next Year

Meizu has confirmed that their MiniOne will be released early next year. Meanwhile, importers like Negri Electronics are still listing a December 7th launch date (which looks to be jumping the gun at this point) along with their revealed price of $989. So much for our New Year's resolution of picking up a cheap iPhone… » 6/30/07 10:16am 6/30/07 10:16am

New Meizu MiniOne Pic Released While World Keeps Watching Mike Matas

Here's a new picture of the Anti-Jesus Phone just released by Meizu's CEO Jack Wong in their bulletin board. Looks like the false prophet wants to steal some thunder off the iPhone launch, because he says that there are more to come very soon.
