    "One smartphone, coming up. Would you want fries with that? How about a custom casing colour? Gold accents? Chrome finish? Would you like to super-size the camera to 5 Mpix? Or ultra-size it to 7 Mpix maybe? Would you like it water resistant, only $7 more? And this week only, the optional TV tuner special for only $29? Or a GPS module perhaps?"

    Honestly, the idea is good (but completely impractical for the manufacturer), however this phone looks like something you would see in a store like DealExtreme [​IMG] ... I'll stick with my cheap 6120 Classic, thankyouverymuch. [​IMG]

    That actually looks pretty cool. Quite tempting, especially with it running windows mobile. If I get bored of waiting for the Meizu MiniOne I think that I might chase this one up.

    Two cameras but no video calling support. Hum.

    Well, the article Javacat linked to claims you get the phone, but it runs Symbian instead of Windows CE.

    Since most phones are put together by hand from components/build modules, adding/omitting some modules to order wouldn't be a problem. It's like cars: the basic model is this much, but then you have the optional extras: extra airbags, better stereo, GPS, metallic paint, leather seats, anti-rust coating, plush dice for the rear-view mirror...

    Well, scam or not (Symbian or Windows), what do you think of the general idea?
