Meizu M9 (iPhone Clone) ROM ported to HTC EVO 4G

It's come to my attention that quite a few people didn't quite know what the Meizu M9 was, first of all, so lemme quick explain it. It's a Chinese phone that's basically a clone of the iPhone, but made with an Android OS. Simple, right? Here's where it gets weird. Now that clone has been re-cloned (at least its insides) into a ROM and has been ported to the HTC EVO 4G. Why would someone do that? Because they COULD do that, that's why.

Meizu M9 Now Available to Purchasers Outside of China

The Meizu M9 has been a long time coming, but it wasn't too long ago that the device finally launched. The expectation for the device created some pretty long lines, which was made worse by the fact that Meizu's CEO still doesn't have any plans to actually release the device outside of China any time soon. That's not going to stop independent retailers, though, and that's exactly what Hong Kong-based retailer DealExtreme is doing. They are more than happy to sell you the device, as long as you can take a bit of a mark-up in the process.

Massive Lines Form as Meizu Launches M9 Android Froyo Phone

Holy crap! This is a sign. A sign that THIS is the year Android takes over the world. Yesterday, January 1st, Meizu launched their latest handset in China: the M9 Android phone, with a 1GHz processor, display extremely similar to iPhone 4, and working on 2.2 Froyo. Apparently even though this was the first day of the year, and just like basically everywhere else in the world is a public holiday, people lined up starting at 8PM the night before - celebrating the new year in line for an Android phone! These lines formed at two Meizu stores in Shenzhen, China and formed in the cold (it's cold there too!) despite the CEO of Meizu Jack Wong discouraging them from doing so since, as he said, "all the flagship stores will have sufficient stock" for pre-orderers. Antsy customers!

Meizu M9 to Feature 1GHz Processor and Display Similar to the iPhone 4′s

There's no question that Meizu, the Chinese-based company, likes to emulate Apple's iPhone. They do it in such a way, though, that legal action has never been taken against the company. This is helped with the inclusion of Android as the Operating System of choice, along with the company's utilization of an original User Interface. But, that's not stopping the physical aspects of the device pulling down ideas from the Cupertino-based company.

Meizu CEO Jack Wong, pulls M9 leaked pics

Jack Wong, CEO of Meizu, apparently got overly excited and leaked pictures of his own device, the M9. Good thing the guys at Engadget managed to copy the pictures before he decided to take them down. Ever since we first heard of the M9, all of us wanted see how it looks.

Meizu M9, Support HDMI 1.3

This is possibly the most anticipated phone to release in China this year. Some analyst is even calling it an iPhone 4G killer. The CEO of Meizu has confirmed this to be an Android 2.1 device. Now another goody was let out of the bag, this handset will include an output for HDMI 1.3. The processor is none other than the Samsung C110 which is powerful enough to decode full HD.
