    Nope. It's a clone. Stylus driven.

    Looks like they did a good job of coping the interface pretty well, but, let me ask you something..

    What's the point in ripping off an open source OS? LOL

    Only reason, the touch screen is stylus driven.

    Last year (as a joke against one of my colleagues who is an apple fanboy) i purchased a CECT P168 IPhone clone (SCIPHONE did several as well). They did "almost" manage to mimick the look but the worst thing was the OS. In my case, it was not at all possible to install software on the phone (later models allowed j2me). It was a totally locked system and also very slow (cpu wise). The only advantage was that it was equipped with two sim-slots.

    When i searched for this g2-clone, some of the results said that it would indeed run Android (but i wouldn't bet on it). But if it sells fairly cheap, someone could try it and write here perhaps....?

    found the specs for it:

    Built-in WiFi, free access to Internet with high speed
    •ARM9 processor, 208MHz system clock
    •Slim/ Flat Touch Screen
    •Thin, simple and humanized design
    •Google Android User interface
    •EDGE 2.75G high-speed network
    •Built-in Opera and UCWEB mobile browser, convenience to the Internet
    •Supports MSN, QQ, ICQ, Google talk and other IM software
    •Pictures and movies will be automatically rotated to proper directions
    when rotating the phone
    •Support Google Mobile functions- Google Maps, Google search, Google Talk, Google Mail, Google sms,Google -411, Google Blogger, Google Calendar,
    Google web albums, Google Notebook, Google reader, Google Docs, Google news,iGoogle

    Kind regards

    Well, I was shopping on ebay for a phone I could get to develop android apps on. I found this thing called the CECT G1.

    CECT G1 Review

    Some sites say it works off android, others say it's a rip-off, though I'm suspecting it's a rip-off too.

    But why clone android?? Just dumb if you ask me. Unless Google asks for royalties from manufacturers that sell their phones with Android pre-loaded.

    Thing is, I thought we could flash android onto any phone we like? Maybe I got the wrong idea. Well, if I bought this thing, could I flash android onto it instead of the gimmik OS?
