05/31/2010, Pictures of what is supposedly the upcoming Meizu M9 have surfaced. If you aren’t already familiar with Meizu, it’s the company behind the most famous iPhone clone before this, the Meizu M8. While the pictures were apparently posted by Meizu’s CEO, there is some skepticism related to the authenticity of these pictures, since the pictures were removed shortly after they surfaced. Of course, we do hope that they’re authentic, and […]
04/15/2010, The Meizu M8 is one of the most well known iPhone clones out there, and according to Meizu’s CEO, the successor to the M8, the Meizu M9, will be powered by a customized version of Android 2.1. While the exact features of the M9 haven’t been officially announced just yet, it’s been said that the phone will offer three different types of virtual keyboards. Are you looking forward to the […]
04/11/2010, Details on Meizu Mbook, the Chinese company’s iPad clone, have surfaced, thanks to the company’s CEO, Jack Wong. Apparently the device will be slightly smaller at 8.4-inches, but will have a longer lasting battery, rated at 12-hours. The display will be a 1024 x 768 pixel one, though the device is apparently good enough to output 1080p video via a HDMI cable. Other features include the capacitive touchscreen, 1.5GHz processor, […]
04/02/2010, The original iPhone killer failed in its mission and faded into oblivion, but we figured out that Meizu did not want to leave their M8 to die off just like that, which is why a new firmware update for the smartphone is released a couple of years after the M8 made an appearance in public markets. This final firmware version was probably 15 months in the making, and will offer […]
02/22/2010, Meizu’s iPhone killer (the first of its kind but failed miserably to live up to its reputation), the M8, has just received a brand new firmware with the version number hitting 0.9.6.9. According to CEO Jack Wong, this new software update offers a brand new user interface. If a picture speaks a thousand words, how about checking out the video to know more about it?
01/24/2010, Do you think Meizu’s M8 lived up to its expectations as an iPhone clone? Well, the company who came up with the most famous iPhone clone is busy with its next model, the Meizu M9. Now Meizu’s CEO J. Wong has come out and spilled the beans on the specifications of the M9. It seems that the phone might be retailing for about $366, but that’ll probably depend a lot […]
01/17/2010, Do you still remember the Meizu M8, one of the most promising iPhone clones? Well, the latest promotional video of the phone is certainly looking good, clean, and professional. It might be interesting to note that in the video, the phone seems to utilize features from all sorts of phones/platforms, including the iPhone, Palm, Android, And Windows Mobile. It’s certainly looking interesting, but the question remains, would you want to […]
12/09/2009, Everyone seems to want to jump aboard the app store bandwagon these days, and the supposed first iPhone killer, the Meizu M8, which failed in that aspect, will also get its own App store pretty soon, known as “MyStore”. No idea on how much closer the M8 would come in its quest to beat out on the iPhone, but something tells us that it won’t be too much of a […]
11/20/2009, Did the moon just turn blue? Guess so, especially when you can pick up the Meizu M8 for a mere €199. What was once touted to be the iPhone killer (but failed miserably in case you haven’t noticed) is going for $295 unlocked (after conversion from Euros), making it $100 cheaper. Just in case you’ve forgotten what the M8 can do, it boasts a wide range of video file format […]
11/11/2009, The Meizu M8 is the iPhone killer that never was, but perhaps with this fan-inspired hack, it could finally live up to a semblance of its full potential? Modified to run Google’s Android operating system, it will be interesting to see whether Meizu will take this route on an official basis or see the M8 waste its potential in the long run.
09/28/2009, Meizu recently announced out their Wi-Fi enabled M8 SE (Second Edition, and not Special Edition as some people might think), but we’re looking more towards the future where there will be a Meizu M8 that probably runs on Google’s Android operating system as well. We’re not too sure when this model will be unveiled, but it apparently boasts an extremely responsive touch control, although other functions such as telephony and […]

05/18/2009, There seems to be whispers of a Meizu M8 update coming, and this time round it won’t be a revolutionary upgrade but be more of an evolution instead. According to Meizu’s chief J. Wong, the upcoming handset will be able to handle both China-native 3G through the TD-SCDMA standard as well as GPS. We can also expect to see a 5-megapixel sensor as well as an LED flash. For those […]
