Jinpeng A1308 love heart handset
‘Lady phones’ are a sub-genre all on their own among Chinese phone-selling sites, usually offering some extra bling, a rounded shape or pastel hues.
The Jinpeng A1308 Dual-band Dual-Card Cell Phone’s pink plastics and heart-shaped buttons might just make it the ultimate expression of the genre.
Doesn't the lassie in your life deserve this instead of an iPhone?
Price $74 (£46)

Lapland Tech i5
We'd love to know the back story behind the name Shenzhen Lapland Technology Co, but the manufacturer's origins are obscure. We will therefore have to make do deducing the rather more obvious source of inspiration for the simply-named i5 phone it sells.
This Android 2.3.6 machine boasts dual SIMs, and its radio is said to play without a special earpiece. Plenty of others have gone down a similar route with iPhone look-alikes. Most run Android. Some run Windows Mobile.
The only reason we can think of to acquire one is to see if you can convince anyone you've got a hypervisor running on your handset.

Re: Quad SIM mobile
Agreed, I've seen this on several occasions:
it's not uncommon and actually very handy (German pun intended)
the travelling aspect simply makes it more viable than less.
Quad SIM mobile
Travelling regularly between two countries I do have a SIM for each for private use - in a dual SIM device. The third one, now in a separate handset, would be for business use. And I could easily add a forth one, e.g. prepaid, with a favourable deal for data. Pretty sure it's not just me...
Is it wrong...
that i really want a watch phone? Like really really? I could use a tablet for facebook, and web and emails. Then turn into dick tracy when i want to make calls. If it does wifi hotspoting then all the better!
Re: ...that would be awesome!
Broke after 2 days?
Well, their brochure did say 'USB that make phone call' [singular].
I want that star phone sooo bad, just so I can whip it out when I get the "my battery is dead...can I make a quick call.." request.
