The dubious 777 smartphone

The Chinese-language site Phone Daily carries word of an unlabelled PDA phone from an unknown manufacturer, which may potentially raise the ire of Microsoft. Known as the 777, it is said to run a version of Windows Mobile, but with a promoted interface that shoddily reproduces Windows XP -- extending to the misspelled name (click below). The phone may otherwise be interesting to Chinese shoppers, since it has a fairly large touchscreen, and can play back both audio and video, including MP3 and MPEG-4 files. A still photo camera is rated at 1.3 megapixels, and the device as a whole weighs less than four ounces. The 777 should already be out in east Asia. [via Akihabara News]

    What's so shoddy about it? It's no less shoddy than any other micro$oft product.

    PDA 777 smartphone

    PDA 777 is truly dubious and a rip off. It purportedly run windows Mobile but nothing else beyond that. You can neither install any program nor view any document. It is more like the CECT phones from China
