Lenovo Ophone rips of Apple iPhone
Lenovo has reskinned the Android OS and done away with Google’s hand-crafted interface in favour of a look and feel that will be very familiar to iPhone owners. It has a suspiciously similar name to the sleek design with its single ‘Home’ button. The only major difference is the big search area at the top – a feature that would actually be quite nice on the iPhone, at least until Spotlight comes along in iPhone OS 3.0. It is interesting to see just how modifiable the Android OS can be. Well I am still not convinced that this will make any Apple iPhone owners switch to this and that such a model is going to escape Apple’s legal anger.
