Chinese Clone Company Will Sue Apple Over iPhone 5 Design

By Jesus Diaz on at

The clone manufacturer who released an iPhone 5 knock-off last week now says that it will sue Apple if it releases the real iPhone 5 in China. Surreal? Hilarious? Pathetic? All of the above.

Hong Kong-based GooPhone, who designed its cheapo Android phone after the alleged Apple iPhone 5 parts leaked during the last few months, has a very rational argument: it has released its clone first, so everything that comes after that must be a copy, even if it actually made its phone after the parts of a phone that hasn't been released yet, but that everyone believes is the real thing.

Makes sense? Of course it doesn't. Who cares! It's fun! [Goophone via GizChina via Cult of Mac]
