The First iPhone 4 Clone?

Even as Apple faces lawsuits and controversy over the iPhone 4's reported reception problem, at least one unknown party is trying to take advantage of the fruit company's latest flagship. Whoever's behind the "Perfect copy iphone 4 !" gives himself away with amateur presentation and photography that doesn't even take advantage of the auto-focus and image-stabilization features found in most cameras today.

And don't get us started on the home screen with fake font. Pictures below are courtesy Boing Boing. If the file names are any indication, the photos were taken with a Sony camera.

    At least this one probably won't have receptions issues.

    Yes, Apple freaks. You can hold this any way you want.

    I don't see metal strips on the side, so probably no reception issue! Similar to the first iPhone clones, some improvements were made in the cloning process.
