Teclast aims directly at iPhone with M26

updated 04:20 pm EDT, Fri March 21, 2008

Teclast M26 player

A new media player by Asia's Teclast is directly targeting the iPhone and the iPod touch. Like the Apple devices, the M26 is almost entirely touchscreen controlled, but Teclast is specifically marketing the player as using the same type of capacitive technology as the iPhone, permitting light finger gestures. The M26 differs mainly by way of having a 2.6-inch, 400x200 screen, and playing AVI, RealVideo and even Flash video files. Neither the iPhone nor the Touch support Flash.

Teclast has also announced a more conventional player, the M30, which relies on a non-touch AMOLED screen. Control is instead handled via a touch-sensitive panel, somewhat resembling the controls on LG's Chocolate products. When it is released, it will ship in black or white for 599 yuan ($85).

    No phone?

    How can this device aim at the iPhone if it has no PHONE?

    This just in..... Southwest Airlines has aimed directly at NASA today with the announcement of their new propeller plane service to Little Rock. Unlike NASA's Space Shuttle which launches humans approximately 5 miles above the Earth's atmosphere, the new Southwest Puddle Jumper's will carry 20 hicks from Tulsa to Little Rock in about the same time it takes them to ride a Greyhound bus to the same destination.... Tape at 11:00.

    What the h*** is 'stting'? LOL

    Sorry, but either this is a joke/fake (the phone pictured is most definitely an iPhone + photoshop), or these guys are in for a nice lawsuit.

    Moshe has been dispatched

    Apple's lawyers are probably already filing the lawsuit, if this thing is indeed real, which I highly doubt. Yes, it does look like it has been photoshopped and I challenge Electronista to prove it exists. If they can't then they're no better than the grocery store rags announcing the existence of bat-boy or aliens. But then we already know this site is c***-on-a-stick when it comes to accuracy.

    Wow. These arguments suck

    @sillypooh - It isn't photoshopped. I just got the one I ordered in the mail, and that's exactly what it looks like.

    @Ikrupp - Apple has no right to sue... And if they felt the need to, why haven't they sued Samsung (for the p2 and p3), Palm (Palm PRE), htc (htc pro, htc diamond, android), microsoft (zune hd touch screen), and all of the other companies who have made touch screen... AND it does exist... Google search the name of the player, and look at the number of reviews there are for it.

    Seriously people, if you're gonna try to argue about something you know nothing about, do a little research. Now excuse me while I enjoy the Teclast M26 pmp I got in the mail today...
