So which is the better fake phone?
 
DealExtreme: $89.03 9700+ 2.3" LCD Dual SIM Dual Network Standby Quadband GSM TV Cell Phone w/ WiFi + Java

or

DealExtreme: $142.91 Touch "3G" 2.8" Touch Screen Wifi Windows Mobile 6.1 Quadband PDA Cell Phone (English)

The second one actually looks like a pretty good deal, I'm suprised.

Non regulated phones put together in a shed that haven't been certified to european and/or american standards have potential to fry your brain (even more than certified ones).
I would stay far far away even if they go for a buck fifty.

I was mainly amused by the fake blackberry with the pseudo rip-off of the Tmobile logo.

I especially like the antenna :?

Who would walk around with attenna sticking that far out!? Haha, and I like how there is a button that says "TV".

I'm surprised if these sites get any real business. On Craigslist there are always people in my area trying to sell fake iPhones that have TV on them as well haha.

Also, the specs list a 3MP camera but the image shows an 8MP camera.

Most of these chinese phones can pull up TV. The thing is, North America is all digital now. We use the ATSC standard but much of the other world uses DVB. So the likelyhood of the TV feature working is very very low.
