Boxu T32 - iPhone Clone

Boxu T32 is definately an iPhone Clone but what's interesting is it's features. The T32 runs on Windows Mobile 6 is powered by TI’s OMAP 850 platform and supports GSM and EDGE networks. Other features include a 3.2-inch LCD touchscreen, a 2 Megapixel camera, a 0.3 Megapixel secondary camera, integrated Bluetooth, integrated GPS and WiFi. It's looks questionable whether this is a real product since all we see is renderings.

Gizmodo prank Update Gizmodo staffer now banned

I must be living under a rock since I didn't see all this talk about Gizmodo's prank sooner. Well apparently CES official's have now responded with a ban of the person who did it.

Here is the official response

We have been informed of inappropriate behavior on the show floor by a credentialed media attendee from the Web site Gizmodo, owned by Gawker Media. Specifically, the Gizmodo staffer interfered with the exhibitor booth operations of numerous companies, including disrupting at least one press event. The Gizmodo staffer violated the terms of CES media credentials and caused harm to CES exhibitors. This Gizmodo staffer has been identified and will be barred from attending any future CES events. Additional sanctions against Gizmodo and Gawker Media are under discussion.
