Okay, you like Apple's iPhone design (who doesn't) but you are addicted to Windows Mobile as the operating system? Why not trying the "T32"? A Chinese reseller is listing this copycat as available soon and indeed, it looks like an iPhone, even if it is a little bit thicker and the 3.5" touchscreen only supports QVGA but the rest is quite identical, including a shiny aluminum-like housing (even if I have my doubt that it is the same quality like the iPhone), a two megapixel main camera and support for triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE only (come on - if you copy it you could spent at least UMTS and HSDPA to make it even "better"):

However, the big difference is Windows Mobile 6 Professional, which the T32 is said to run on (Microsoft - has this company licensed Windows Mobile from you?) and to feature WiFi, Bluetooth 1.2 with A2DP wireless stereo and an integrated GPS receiver. But it's only running on TI's OMAP 850 platform which should provides 200 MHz maximum. Last but not least the T32 is backed-up by 1 GB of ROM and 512 MB of RAM.

A price isn't given yet and I have serious doubts we will see it released anywhere outside China.

Cheers ~ Arne
