The original iPhone
clone (or not-clone, depending on what you read
) has been reviewed by PC Magazine with no real surprise in the outcome. As we've mentioned in the past, it's pretty and the screen is grand, but the UI does have some shortcomings -- most notably the input system for texting, mailing, and the like. Positives include the aforementioned screen, luxury brand and feel (though we disagree here, we felt it was a bit cheap
) great music and video playback, and surprisingly long talk time. Of course there are cons too, and the gripes include no 3G, quiet earpiece, and poor PC support software (there are no Mac tools at all). The review concludes that the Prada
really is a higher end fashion phone and will be competing with the likes of the Nokia 8801 and while it isn't an iPhone, it's stable and beautiful.
