Do these brands sound familiar: Nokla, Nokta, Suny Ericssom, Scny Ericsscn, AiFeng, Veptu?

Copying and trademark infringement has always been a big problem for international brands in Asia. To illustrate, we have included the images of two cute animals that were found to be imitating the logo of an international brand!

NOKLA N95 VS NOKIA 95

This five-letter combination only differs from its famous original counterpart by one letter! This Nokla N95 model was released much earlier than the Nokia's N95, and has almost seized the latter market!

This Nokla phone has almost the same features and looks almost identical to Nokia's, with the exception that it does not have a bi-directional slider form factor. Hey, they even copied the wordings for the camera lenses!

Motorola A1200 Imitation with half of its logo

Here's an interesting Motorola fake: one that looks like the real stuff, but has a logo which is half of Motorola's!

The Motorola A1200 has captured the hearts of many consumers, which resulted in this fake Motorola A1200, known as CECT.

Putting its logo aside, the exterior of the CECT looks identical to its original counterpart. However, its touch screen is not comparable to Motorola's, hence wasting the large touchscreen.

Anycall VS Samsung E908

Anycall are Samsung rebranded handsets sold throughout Asia. They tend to be filled with Samsung's latest features.

The mastermind behind these Samsung's imitations decided not to rack his or her brains and boldly named them Anycall!

The i718 looks like an exact replica of its original, except for the missing dot for its letter "A". And even its screen saver is identical to Samsung E908's!

FUN VS PSP

This FUN handphone's design is based on the popular gaming device PSP. Unlike others that try to create a replica based on the real stuff, this handphone makes use of the popularity of the PSP instead.

Although its exterior looks similar to PSP, its gaming features are a far cry from the PSP's.

Suny Ericssom VS Sony Ericsson

With a brand name that might cause a person to mistakenly identify this as the famous Sony Ericsson, this Suny Ericssom has a larger 2.4 inches screen and includes a pair of power speakers, hence combining Sony's Walkman and Cyber-shot features!

Although this Suny Ericssom has copied Sony Ericsson's logo and its Cyber-shot trademark, and even comes with a larger screen and better speakers, its camera is awkwardly placed on the exterior of the phone's body.

Nokta N75 VS Nokia N73

Wow, this Nokta N75 has the familiar looks of Nokia N73, and comes with a PDA-like screen and even includes an old-style joypad! This guy is just trying hard to use the fame of the N73 to boost its sales!

AiFeng VS iPhone

The media coverage for the iPhone was so strong that customer awareness is a lot stronger than most mobile phone on the market. All that for a product not even released.

But wait.. why do I see the iPhone being released in China? Fret not, this is not the actual iPhone, but one made by China's AiFeng. This phone is probably created to satisfy those that are waiting for the actual product. Its distinctive features include enabling users to enjoy both CDMA and GSM services by switching between the two networks freely with only one dual-mode handset, plus its phone book can be stored on a TF card. How innovative!

Scny Ericsscn VS Sony Ericsson Z610i

Cleverly named by replacing the letter "O" by the letter "C", this Scny Ericsscn clamshell faithfully captures the rich glossy magic of the Ericsson Z610i's reflective exterior surface. This device not only has a sleek mirror finish, it also re-interpreted the Z610i's design, such as replacing the 'invisible' OLED display that appears when a call comes in with colorful LEDs instead!

Veptu VS Vertu

If copying popular handphones is smart, here's a smarter example: Why not copy an exclusively crafted handset for individuals who only accept the best, and ultimately, built for the rich instead?

A Vertu may cost around $20,000 USD, but a Veptu costs way less than that! Veptu and Vertu may not be that similar, but if both of them are all written in capital letters, you get: VEPTU and VERTU! Now, what happened to that missing stroke?

The Fake:

In a nation where counterfeiting costs companies worldwide $60 billion a year, according to the U.S. government, selling of such fake merchandise should be discouraged because counterfeiting undercuts honest competition and rewards illegal competitors, and even defraud innocent customers.

Anycall is not fake - it is Samsung, The person who wrote this post was referring to a fake anycall phone. somone has ripped of anycall!
