Yes, since the basic design for the Lumias, and the predecessor N9, resemble the older iPod Nanos, I would say it is fair to brand the Nokia a ripoff. Thumbs up from me.

I think an iPhone that almost identically resembled a current iPod Nano would sell well. A smaller aluminum touchscreen package just like it. Just your basic features and more basic useful apps available.

Most iPhone users buy a iPhone to show off though, if it is cheaper then where is the show factor, besides some of the poorest in society end up with an iPhone....

Thats what Im saying. Dont make a low end phone and make it seem like one. Make one in disguise of a mini version except with all aluminum and small.

I kinda like the look of this. I also like that they aren't gonna cheap out and go back to the 3.5 inch screen. If they basically make this a 4s with the 4 inch screen it'll do pretty well.

I gotta say, this looks worse than Samsung's designs. Heck it makes them look "cool".

They're making an iPhone budget phone? Just when you thought it couldn't get anymore low end. The iPhone 5 is already considered midrange at best.

The render is an improvement to the iphail design philosophy, that is, one of the biggest complaints I have with the iph4 and above is the hard edges that make it uncomfortable, even painful, to hold. The original and 3g/gs had the rounded back but a rough seam between the bezel and back, making it feel cheap, toylike, and also uncomfortable.

Why do people like these things again?

Also, insert obligatory Lumia reference here.

Back the bus up. The iPod Nano predates the N9.

All apple does is copy everyone dont know why you all dont see that yet. The multi colored options make the phone look very cheap and plastic like. Funny all theses apple fans said samsung was garbage cause the plastic now apple is going to have it and it looks good to them. lol comical

What's comical is that you are comparing an entry level phone with a cheesy looking plastic to a high end phone with cheesy looking plastic. Most are complaining because of the plastic on the high end models that look cheap and feel cheap. The overwhelming majority of folks don't mind plastic made to look and feel high end. Notice how no one says "Cheap plastic" for Nokia models. It's because those bricks don't feel or look cheap and feel good in the hand.

I actually like the form factor of the iPhone Light. I've always liked the rounded edges of the 1st gen iPhone, very ergonomic & form fitting; sturdy feel too. I think it looks quite cool.
