Cool K07 Palm Pre Knockoff Issued

cool k07 palm pre clone The Palm Pre has been shanzai'd again, this time under the Cool K07 moniker. A site called Solomobi is now selling the Sunnyvale inspired model for a cool $128 credits.

Cool's take includes a 2.8 inch 320 x 240 pixel touchscreen, ~20MB of memory with T-Flash expansion, 2 cameras, Bluetooth, Analog TV & FM radio and GPRS connectivity all with a slide out QWERT full keyboard. Software wise it is said to offer Java functions and its powered by some kind of gravity inducer? Lookout for the "handshaking function" which alters the wallpaper when shaken.

A couple more pics are posted after the break.


Thanks, Engadget.

Ironic thing is that there looks like it has more hardware features than the Pre. Two cameras, one of pics and the other for video conferencing. A built in AM-FM radio and Java! Wouldn't be surprised that there is some open source embedded IDE that does native code for it!

All the Me-Too Media is calling this a Pre knockoff

Yet the ONLY thing it has in common with the Pre is a portrait-slider QWERTY keyboard!

I would humbly disagree on the moniker.

microSD memory expansion? TV/FM tuners? Heck this thing's got better specs than the Pre in some areas!

SV, if you cannot see the obvious similarities in design between this monstrosity and the Pre, God help you...

Yes, I see the similarity.

That was the point of the thread.

There is A similarity.

The Me-Too Media picks up on a thought and mindlessly repeats it far and wide.

"Me-Too" Media.

Now THERE's a similarity.

I see Dell's going to sell their Pre Knockoff through AT&T - CES mention.
