iPod Design Rip-Off Alert

This image was lost some time after publication.

So you just can't wait for Apple's fabled cellphone, eh? Well, perhaps you'd like a handset that looks like an iPod instead. This is the Dbtel M50 cellphone, which is curiously shaped like an Apple iPod. The controls are pretty much based on the iPod, and the phone is small and light, weighing in at 2.8 oz. Other design features include a 2-megapixel camera and, strangely enough, no keypad. So basically, you are dialing using the scrollpad—which doesn't seem like such a great deal to me (though I guess you'd get used to it). But what makes this more of an iPod cousin is its music player, 16MB of built-in memory and large color display. I'll stick with the ROKR E2, thanks very much.
