In response to the upcoming and widely-expected release of Apple’s iPhone 5 later this month, a Chinese company has responded for those who can’t wait that long.
Coming from Goophone is its version of the iPhone 5, which it’s calling the Goophone I5. First, it runs Android – but don’t expect to get the latest Jelly Bean update – instead it will ship with 2.3 (Gingerbread). Second, the screen size is the same as the iPhone 4 – contrary to rumors of the official iPhone 5 having a 4-inch 16:9 screen.
Lucky buyers can pick up their Goophone I5 for a cool $219 from here, and even add an Apple logo to the phone when purchasing.
While Apple has been busy tackling Samsung in courts around the world, Goophone and its “iPhone5″ remain untouched for now, though not without some laughs.
