Meizu MiniOne Real Pricing, Availability

Illustration for article titled Meizu MiniOne Real Pricing, Availability

Either this site is overcharging by a crapload or the previous pricing was totally off, but the Meizu MiniOne is up to $988 for the 16GB model, compared to $450, which was listed before. What could cause such a rise in price? Hard to say.

We do know that the phone should be available around December 7, but such a lofty price compared to the iPhone may just put a damper on any plans for the Meizu being any sort of real competition. Full specs after the jump. [NegriElectronics]

Update: It seeems the Negri Electronics pricing was just a guess before real pricing was announced. So far there hasn't been any change (says Meizu) that the pricing will be any different from the $450-ish for the 16GB model that they announced before. Availability is still targeted around late 2007 or early 2008. Thanks SSJMichael!

@odnet: Care to cite at least one source? All I can find is a claim by the Meizu CEO that the M8 was announced 4 days before Macworld and that pictures of it had been in the wild since 2006. I could find no press releases of other info to back that up, only a render of the M8 with that UI.

Now, even if that were announced 4 days before MacWorld, which seems more likely to you? That, in 4 days time, Apple saw a mock-up of a phone and UI and manufactured a working prototype for MacWorld — Or that someone at Meizu got a glimpse of an iPhone a week early and did a quick render?

I think it's pretty telling that we still haven't seen a physical M8, only renders. The idea that they had this form factor and UI first is a total joke.

@P3nnst8r: See above, and always remeber that people who don't demand proof of claims that are made end up drinking Kool-Aid in Jonestown.
