Don't get us wrong, Nokia's Aeon concept is beautiful. By the time you remove all the fanciful, nonexistent technology and try to come up with a dead ringer of your own, though, a certain something is lost in translation. A manufacturer -- not Nokia, trust us -- has now tried (and failed) to recreate the Aeon's magic in a retail package, dubbing it the YX-W168 and throwing in dual SIM capability, 2 megapixel camera, and that critical "invisible keyboard" lit by a handful of blue LEDs, but there's only one small problem: it looks nothing like the Aeon. Simple steps like getting rid of the "Vogue Lifestyle" label etched across the phone's edge would've gone a short way toward making it a more believable rip, but then again, not really.
