The ‘Iphone looking Mp4 player’

I just got a bit if junk email with a Word document attached showing a Taiwanese rip-off of the iPhone. It’s not a Phone but is an MP4 player, or in the words of the email, it is an "Iphone looking Mp4 player"! Basically the email was looking for me to place a bulk order of a minimum 1000!

I’d read on the web the other day about a Chinese company working on creating a rip off of the iPhone but obviously the photocopiers have been hard at work! Interesting to see what Apple Legal department make of this!

The email:

  1. i won that as a prize in the ms readathon.
    It sucked
    let me just say two moths later i found it in my dogs kennal

  2. It is safe to say that Apple lead the market in consumer based MP3 / MP4 players. Over the years they have brought innovation in the market, but all at a huge cost to the end customer. Whilst the MP4 market is still relativity new a large range is now available, mostly from China and mostly offering the same features but in different packaging.

    MCHMedia is pleased to announce a change in direction for the MP4 player market. Through the media box range it offers true functionality with style. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the media box MP4 players don't conform to the norm, they are larger in size than most of their rivals, this is due to the 4100mAh battery, which gives users over 18 hours of continuous video play. This specification alone makes the media box range stand out from the crowd. Available in 3 versions, the Lite, Max and Touch, a touch screen MP4 Player, all are packed with easy to use features and functions.

    The media box range is worth considering when looking for a new MP4 player. The Lite is the MCHMedia entry level player, whilst the Max and Touch are for more seasoned users. The are 6 colours to choose from, and 4 memory options mean you can select the player that best suits your data needs.

  3. I totally enjoy this..I got one for Christmas and I'm happy with it? I just wish the owners manual was a little easier to read..That's the only flaw I have experienced so far..

  4. i bought one of these off of ebay…but the sell told me it was a ipod touch and didnt even show picture of this mp4 player . I was very disappointed. I opened the package to a skam

  5. hey does someone think they could order me one off of ebay. and mabye we could meet some place . email me bak PLEASE.

  6. I purchased the device an da bomb branded 8gb model and I must admit it?s a slick little piece of technology I took it on a plane and watched movies on it, but it was primarily purchased as a mp3 and radio for my motorcycle it was great until the jack on the mp 4player. I am inclined to blame a drop that one of my kids did. So I have purchased a new royal branded one from another seller on ebay. Oddly enough they look exactly the same however this one came with more free stuff including a case\cover for the device and a car charger. The firmware that?s loaded on the device is great. It even turns on and off faster, however the buttons are too small so im on the hunt for a crack\hack for changing the screen layout. If anyone finds one, do let me know. Over all I suggest this device. For the money it can?t be beat and like I said I blame the malfunction on the alleged drop. So have at it. Um loving it.

  7. im getting one in the mail soon i bought off off ebay brand new in box for about $41.00. ohh im soo excited.

  8. i got this at it comes in 1gb 2gb 4gb 8gb all under 100 dollars. it works great. i have a iphone and a ipod touch this is like a smaller version of the iphone. it also has a built in camera. the ipod touch is very similar. its called a mini mp4 player.
