The Meizu M8 is a touch-controlled, multimedia and internet-enabled smartphone. It is popularly regarded as a Chinese iPhone-like phone due to its similarity to the features, UI, and physical design of the Apple iPhone.[1] The M8 runs a version of Microsoft Windows CE 6 with a modified GUI, similar to that of the iPhone. It was created after the success of Meizu’s 2 MP3/MP4 players—the M6 Mini Player and the M3 Music Card. The phone has been delayed several times due to not meeting Chinese cellular phone guidelines. Already it has drawn attention in the US, due to its similarity to iPhone, and also because of its unique features. Originally announced in two versions – an entry-level version with no camera and a standard version – only the standard model was released.

While we are all wating for the arriving of M9 at this link:

you can try (that’s it, you can taste and feel) the M8 working…

Some unusual – but still very interesting – news dropped recently. Meizu, the company famous for making an iPhone clone to die for, is bringing out a handset that will sport a modified version of Android 2.1. Dubbed the Meizu M9, it’ll come equipped with 3 different types of keyboards but no other features (or initial specs) have been revealed.

CEO Jack Wong brings us this news but also drops a nice tidbit for M8 users: they’ll be getting Android 2.1, as well. The M8 will be used as a testing ground for the M9, apparently, but that’s particularly interesting – and somewhat impressive – since it’s my understanding that the Meizu M8 was designed to run Windows CE 6.0.

It’s not every day that an old Windows phone gets resurrected with official Android support from its manufacturer, so we’ll keep a close tab on how this pans out. I wonder if an HD2 could be stripped of its WinMo stripes and be granted the awesomeness that is Android.

Oh, Meizu, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways. The KIRF-rooted company has released a promo touting the UI for its M8 phone. If any of it seems familiar, just remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Honestly, we’re a bit surprised just how professional the video feels, and the tune’s pretty memorable to boot. Get it caught in your head all day, footage is after the break.

Right from day one when Meizu announced the M8 phone, it has gained attention because of its resemblance with the mighty iPhone. And with the announcement of this phone hitting our shores, it made us curious about how well this phone will perform, especially as it piggybacked iPhone’s craze and demand. Luckily, we managed to score an 8GB version for a few days and put it to test to know if it’s worth the hype or is it just another Chinese iPhone clone.

Here is a video review of the Meizu M8 phone. Watch the video after the jump to get more info.

Meizu M8The Meizu M8, sometimes also called Mini One is an upcoming mobile phone to be produced by the Chinese MP3 player manufacturer MEIZU Electronic Technology.

The M8 has received a great amount of hype, not least from the fact that the new product renders features a design reminding very much of the Apple iPhone. Something online news sources often miss to mention is that the iPhone look-alike is only one of many concept renderings of the Meizu M8. And as it is set to be released in the third or fourth quarter this year, there will surely be room for change.

NEW! The Meizu miniOne specifications page has been updated in accordance to new information recently revealed by Meizu. About the release: Meizu are having problems acquiring a phone distribution license, so release will most likely still be in Q4 2007 and not earlier.

During the first quarter of year 2007, Meizu released a lot of different product renderings (which you can see more of in Meizu M8 pictures) through their bulletin boards. Shortly after, the guys at their largest international fan site Meizu Me picked the news up and from there; the news has spread like wildfire, getting featured on the most popular technology websites such as Engadget and Gizmodo.

As of now, the Meizu M8 has attracted a lot of attention online, and has even made its way to traditional media (newspapers). Surprisingly, the attention has been more positive than negative. Mostly, people praise the great price for the great specifications. As a result, the M8 has become a highly anticipated product.


It comes as no surprise when Meizume reported we’ll have to wait till 2010 for the Meizu M8 3G. As earlier reported, the 3G version of the best-known iPhone clone will have improved specs like GPS and a 5 MP camera. It will use the same Mymobile Meizu M8 OS which is a customized Windows CE 6.0.
