Just when you think HTC's dominated the market, OKWAP's S868 Pocket PC phones comes out and shows that HTC's not the only Taiwanese brand that can make good Windows Mobile smartphones. The S868 runs WM5 Pocket PC Edition (the non-gimped, touchscreen one) and has an Intel PXA270 416MHz Processor, 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM, a 2.4-inch screen, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 and an SD slot.

But that's not the most interesting feature. The most interesting feature is the iPod-like virtual clickwheel which allows you to "scroll" like you would an iPod. Simply swirl your thumb in a circle over the number keys and you get a similar effect. The phone's on sale now in Taiwan for 15,000 Taiwan dollars ($455).

When you post things like this it drives me crazy. I love it, I want it, but how? You should really (please) setup some sort of Gizmodo grey market store GGM for short(Trademark pending I thought of it, but I sell it to you for one of these phones or a wii or a dollar)

I am in for this phone, seriously. I will learn Chinese (I'm guessing) if need be, but you know native English would be great too.

You could work something out with Dynanism for a cut, you pitch 'em they sell. And Balls to FCC for trying to stop ya, nerds need to start a Riot (or learn several foreign languages and move to Gadget heaven aka S.Korea, Taiwan, or Japan and live as a giant with bad language skills)

I am waiting with baited (sic) breath and CC in hand, this could be better than ye old woot off!(seriously still going it has been like 2 days now. Stop it woot my debt cries mercy)
