Gigabyte clone of Nokia 6270 called g-Smart i

You would think with the recent lawsuit over a series of fake Motorola RAZRs that these companies would know better. Well, I guess it becomes fair game when you don’t explicitly sell your copycat wares as versions of the original, because, in the Chinese market, you will find a lot of iPod look-alikes that, well, aren’t made by Apple.

The latest knockoff is the Windows Mobile 5.0-powered g-Smart i, an obvious clone of the popular Nokia 6270 slider phone. I’ve got to hand it to the people at Gigabyte, though, because this handset does come with some pretty nifty features. For starters, there’s a 2.1-megapixel camera and a miniSD card slot, not to mention a huge 2.4-inch touchscreen TFT display. The FM tuner comes standard, with options for a GPS navigation system and a TV tuner. Of course, it plays a range of tunes and vids (MP3 MPEG4, GPP, WMV).

No word on pricing or availability, but you can expect the g-Smart i to start popping up in the Chinese marketplace any day now if it hasn’t already.
