    Fake Nokia N95s

    I heard about these on the BBC today. Apparently they are rife on eBay and there are quite a few variants.

    Some of them look very good, althought you can normally tell from the specs which ones are fakes or badged nokla as they tend to have 2MP camera dual sim slots and a touch screen with stylus. Quite a few people have been caught out and some in desperation have tried to shift them on by re listing them on ebay.

    Hmm the one in that video is a very good copy indeed, I take it the one on the right is the fake (not got sound on) it seem to boot up far too quickly to be an N95 even with demand paging :P
