Keepin' it real fake, part CCXIV: IBM Touch T600 should totally run OS/2

Chris Ziegler

Every once in a while, the knockoff manufacturers get creative -- really creative -- by dreaming up wild, crazy "what if" scenarios, and "what if IBM got into the cellphone biz?" is the thought-provoking question we're dealing this time around. The company's industrial design -- much of which went to Lenovo in the sale of its PC business -- is legendary, and some undoubtedly Shenzhen-based concern has done a surprisingly decent job of translating that ID to a handset. The T600 runs Windows Mobile with some customizations we haven't seen before and apparently features GPS, EDGE, and a pair of SIM slots -- a surefire sign that the phone is designed and destined for the Chinese market. We're not sure why they bothered with the slightly-modified Vodafone logo, though -- whoever heard of someone wanting carrier branding on an unlocked device?
