MacNN | Air Phone No.4 clones iPhone 4, FaceTime:

The first iPhone 4 clone is now out in China, just five days after the original's launch. Called Air Phone NO.4, it's a little thicker, at about 0.37 inches, and is not a smartphone despite copying Apple's icon layout and interface. Twin 0.3-megapixel cameras allow for self-portraits and regular shooting; the company goes so far as to produce a fake FaceTime app.

Inside, it uses an MTK CPU and has a 3.5-inch resistive touchscreen. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are built-in. The handset does not have Chinese support in its available languages, so it may be intended as an export despite its country of origin. The Air Phone NO.4 is now available in China, priced at the equivalent of about $100.
