One of the best iPhone copies we have seen. Is Apple watching any of this? The HiPhone C-002 is being sold by DragonKicks for $239. The best part is that they have actually made some improvements such as; not carrier specific/unlocked, dual SIM slots, removable battery, and a microSD slot. They don’t mention the phones storage capacity at this time.

The DragonKicks website states that “All orders are processed in China…”. However they clearly have a presence in the US and really need to clean up their “whois” record which comes back to a Darren Kikuchi and a USA Freestyle Martial Arts Studio in San Diego, CA. Apple doesn’t need much help finding these guys. Either way… you have to wonder about a retail website that takes the following payment methods; Western Union, MoneyGram, e-gold, and AlertPay.
