    "This is a new Sony PS3 mobile phone...that plays Nintendo's Super Mario Bros...and which uses Microsoft's PS3 operating system - no, wait, that's not right. Hang on it's made in Koera - where the hell's Koera?!

    Yes, what we have here is the mother of all clone phones. It's a Chinese phone (naturally!), and its makers have decided that imitation is most definitely the sincerest form of flattery. As such, they've named it the Amycoll PS3 phone, which, er, "flatters" both Samsung, with its Korean Anycall brand, and also Sony, with its PS3. They've even added PlayStation buttons on the keypad, just for good measure!

    Amyvoll mobile phone that's just wrong The copying fun doesn't end there, though. As Babelfish's translation calls it, the "Chinese evil behind-the-scenes manipulator's machine" has a Microsoft Windows logo that reads "Design for PS3". Didn't realise Microsoft did design for Sony's PS3! Not to worry, its entire Microsoft Windows user interface is faked as well!

    Amycoll mobile phone made in Koera - not Korea?! As if that wasn't enough, they've even faked the country of origin. Korean phones are legendary for their technical features, so it makes sense to pretend your phone comes from Korea right? Except they couldn't actually spell Korea, so the Amycoll PS3 comes from Koera!

    Say hello to Mario on a Mobile phone And still the fun continues. Not content with faking operating systems and copying brands and even countries (badly!) the Amycoll PS3 even includes a Nintendo NES, SNES and GameBoy color emulator, so you can play Super Mario Bros on your mobile phone.

    Mario on a mobile phone Actually, that's a great idea! Playing Mario on a mobile is a killer app, and doing it with PlayStation buttons on a fake Windows Operating System is just so wrong, it feels goooood - almost dirty even!! Pity the phone's so illegal it'll never make it outiside of China (not to mention that the phone itself gets so hot when you play any of its games that you can't actually hold it!).
    Amycoll PS3 mobile phone Another interesting feature is that this phone will play background noise when you make a call, just in case you want to pretend you're somewhere else. So, if you've told your wife you're on a ship somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, when in reality you're down the local pub, the Amycoll PS3 will play the sounds of life aboard an Atlantic-trawling ship while you chat away to her! Really, they've thought of everything!

    This phone is hilarious! It's as if a team of teccie fan-boys got together one drunken night and concocted a wish list of all their favourite gadgets that they'd like in a mobile phone - then the next day, thought "what a great idea" and bodged just such a Frankenstein phone together, while singing "patents? trademarks? law-suits - pah! We spit on you all!"

    [​IMG]

    Then, when they'd finished, their marketing department thought "what this phone really needs is some great sounding brand names - whose can we pinch?!"

    The Amycoll PS3 phone isn't quite as cool as the Anycall Dual Blonde, another clone phone that plays Mario while pretending to be a PSP phone, but which does it so much cooler. Still, the Amycoll must rank as the funniest phone in the history of mobile phonedom!"

    EDIT: Thats from the source, I didn't write it. [​IMG]

    This device? This device right here? This is what would happen if Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo had some bizarre multi-billion dollar threesome that somehow produced a child. [​IMG]

    Huh ... Those Asian fake device manufacturers are a skilled bunch. It's a pity that fake brand devices sell better than, for example, GP2X ...

    Just for all the people to see it, here is the 'Anycall Dual Blonde, PSP Phone. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    "Marvel at these pics of what appears to be a brand new PSP gaming phone. Featuring a dual-slider form factor similar to the Samsung SGH-F520 smartphone, but with gaming controls replacing the F520's keypad, the Anycall Dual Blonde, as this super-cool phone is called (somewhat bizarrely!), is a Windows Mobile device with touchscreen, 3 megapixel camera, and is designed purely for game playing.

    However, although this phone isn't fake, all is not as it first appears...This phone isn't fake in a Photoshopped sense, but it is in terms of blatant copyright infringement. Anycall is a trademark of Samsung, who use the brand name in its native Korean market. It's not a Samsung phone, though. On the back, it has PSP emblazoned in bold letters - but it's not a Sony Ericsson phone. It even comes with 11 preinstalled Nintendo NES games, but it has nothing to do with Nintendo.

    In fact, it's one enormous law-suit-baiting clone phone whose manufacturers have seemingly pinched every hyped-up brand name they could think of andplastered them all over this phone in an effort to shift as many units as possible. Even the "Windows Mobile" bit is fake, with a ripped off Windows Mobile UI!

    This is a shame, as the Double Blonde offers everything you'd want from a gaming phone - innovative form factor, great games, good features, and the type of phone that would have every PlayStation and Nintendo fanboy drooling!

    It's been sold by an eBay seller for just $200, so if you want a phone that no-one else on the world owns (and no guarantee that the phone itself will actually work - with this amount of ripped off technology, even the GSM circuitry might be ripped off!), head over to eBay and bid for the thing (hopefully without ripped off dollars!).

    For the rest of us, we can but wait and hope that Sony Ericsson remember what innovation is and release a PSP phone sometime (or better still, Nintendo release a DS phone - now that would be something! Ah well, we can dream!)"

    Maybe this phone ships with 2 blondes? lol or hell maybe was MADE from 2 blondes. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Buttons are awful but what's wrong with Sony Ericsson's user interface?! I mean the on-screen one, because that's exactly what they've copied in the 5th picture, the icons are identical [​IMG]

    And that Pink color just adds to the phone value.

    Great for every respectable Nintendo-loving businessman!

    I have trouble understanding both phones. Why PS3/PSP name in the phone yet play Super Mario?
    Chinese Koerans don't know the difference between Sony and Nintendo?

    P.S. I almost wrote Koeran as Korean lol so confusing

    Well who knows the logic behind the naming, why not Wii or DS? Isn't the DS there called iQue? Its got nothing to do with Koreans, they just said it is as most hardware is by Koreans.

    Oh and Koerans was a misprint.
