Keepin' it real fake, part XLIII: SE W950 slacker edition


If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: don't try to pull of this whole fakin' it thing if you aren't going to take it all the way. While the eBay perp in this situation obviously committed hundreds of man-hours into making sure he used every single tacky font color and size on his item listing, we can't say as much for this "Langxin M902" he's peddling. The phone pretends to Sony Ericsson W950i UIQ heights, but ends up looking a bit more like a dollar store edition -- unacceptable, somebody should be working their sweatshop workers at least twice as hard! All the same, 12.6mm of thickness, an included 512MB memory card, Bluetooth, 1.3 megapixel camera and audio and video playback really isn't too shabby for a knockoff, and neither is that 2.4-inch 176 x 220 touchscreen if you don't break the cheap plastic stylus at your first go. Unfortunately, the GSM phone is of the 900 / 1800 MHz persuasion, so Stateside KIRFers will have to look elsewhere.
