Knock off iPhone 4 brings togther three mobile platforms on one device
Well, well, what do we have here? It was only going to be a matter of time before someone, specifically China, would give birth to some kind of iPhone 4 knockoff for cheap, but this iPhone 4 look a like takes it a few steps further.

Selling for the price of $275, and that's with no contract requirements, you'll get an iPhone 4 knock off which eerily looks similar to the venerable smartphone. Although it doesn't necessarily replicate the iPhone 4 in its entirety, since it's apparently just a bit longer than the real deal, it does provide you a choice of which platform to run on it.

Sure it has a knock off iOS interface, which in fact is powered by the MTK6516 platform, but you can seemingly ditch it in favor of either running Windows Mobile 6.5 or Android 2.1. In addition, the handset even packs a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, but we'd imagine that it won't replicate the iPhone 4's low lighting prowess.

In any event, this iPhone 4 knock off might impress some people with its ability to switch platforms, but it does make you wonder.
