Fake iPod Nanos hit Manila
Was passing by Makati Cinema Square this afternoon and noticed a makeshift stall was doing a gadgets bazaar. Best sellers are 29″ TV sets (unknown brand) for only Php7,000.
What caught my attention was an iPod Nano imitation. I took a closer look and the device was really close to the real thing. They’re in 256MB capacity, plays mp3 and videos and has an FM player — both in black and pearl white models.
The media player is officially called an MP4 but the face plate has a lettering of iPod 650 in it. The video is aweful though — looks like 64 colors only and the boot-up screen says “Bye Bye”. Funny. (Wasn’t able to take actual shots of it using my camera phone since a lot of people are watching and wanted to take a hold of it too.)
How much? For a low, low price of Php3,500 you can own one of these babies. *heh*
