I love cheap knockoffs. They try so hard to emulate some of the most successful devices on the market, but you can spot them from a mile away and you can just tell from their looks that they’re about as worthless as crud. Still, the Chinese market seems to get a kick out of them and the HTC EVO 4G is no exception to this trend.
It does look a lot like the EVO 4G. If you put it out of your mind that the real EVO has no chromed sides and that the position of the LED lights and the speaker on the back are supposed to be switched around, it might just fool the average person (then again: who’s looking that closely to begin with?)
There’s no HDMI-out, no HD video recording, no front-facing camera, and no Android: Windows Mobile disgraces a knockoff that could’ve otherwise been decent. The funniest thing is that they’ve managed to keep the Sprint 4G logo on the back door even though it’s obvious Sprint does not manufacture the battery door pictured above.
I still don’t know how some of these companies manage to get away with this blatant disregard for likeness and copyright infringement. I understand copyright, patent, and trademark laws in the US are different from other regions in the world – giving these Chinese knock-off manufacturers a green light on pulling this stuff off – but jeez. Ah well, at least the kickstand works. That’s the only important to consider here, right?
