Adding to the ever-growing list of knockoff devices found overseas, Nexian (an Indonesian mobile phone manufacturer) brings us the Android Magic A893 – a device that looks awfully similar to the iPhone, but which packs Android 2.2 Froyo and rings in at IDR 1,599,000 (about $175 USD). To get a better idea of the device's eerily familiar form factor, check out this unboxing video:
And here are the device's (less than magical) specs:
- Android 2.2 Froyo
- WCDMA 2100MHz and GSM 900/1800 MHz compatibility
- 3.5" HVGA multitouch display
- VGA front shooter and 2MP rear camera
- Wi-Fi connectivity
- FM Radio
- 3.5G Connectivity
- 8GB Internal memory
To the Magic's credit, the inclusion of interchangeable back plates is a nice touch, and the fact that the device (allegedly) has a capacitive display may put this device slightly above other knockoffs you may have seen. That being said, I wouldn't say that relying on this device as anything other than a novelty is advisable.
