    This has got to be the saddest thing I have ever seen. Are we so brain washed that there is actually a market out there catering the mindless idiots who really want an iphone so bad that they will take a copy and try to pass it off as the real thing? Like I said a very sad day. :mad::argh::(:rolleyes::thinking:

    What I don't understand is that one of these phones cost about the same as a used Iphone anyway, so why not just get an older model iphone if you want one so bad.

    I don't know. I think the fake eggs still win the cake.

    Ironically enough, not in China. The iPhones are a lot more expensive there than they are in the US.

    Yup... and knock-offs like the GooApples and GooPhones are also much cheaper on Chinese language websites and from the local traders, usually around $100-$130 USD on Taobao.

    One of my favourite knock-offs is the fake Disneyland they tried to build near Beijing.
    China's Fake Disneyland: The Park That Never Was
    I go past the unfinished Sleeping Beauty Castle every time I travel to Beijing.
