Fake iPod Shuffle (2nd gen) released BEFORE the real one

28 09 2006


When the boys at Engadget aren’t fellating themselves in a sea of smugness and narcissism, they call call these sort of posts ‘Keepin it Real Fake’. Well keep suckin’ Engadget, we beat you to it this time. (just playin!) What you’re seeing here is (supossedly) a faked second generation iPod Shuffle. Pretty much every iPod to come out has been knocked off by a Chinese company, but this is the first time we’ve seen a fake before the real one is even released to the public. My girl in Hong Kong relayed this pic to me from an as yet unnamed Chinese gadget forum . I can’t personally vouch for the validity of it and I can’t read Mandarin; but here’s the pic nonetheless.

Wow. Quite interesting really. Why not get your girl to send one over, and do a Real vs Fake post? Would be quite a good read i think.

Um…as someone pointed out to me, it looks like an iPod radio remote with her thumb covering the cord.

Well, just so you all know, I checked out the website that hello posted, and TFS is right. It is the radio and the new shuffle. Really, I don’t think that the Chinese would reproduce one that is pretty different. First of all, it isn’t coated in aluminum, and the edges are more rounded. Do you really think they could really pass this as a fake? I hate to burst all your bubbles, but the new shuffle didn’t come out yet, the picture from your girl in Hong Kong is actually from the url in hello’s comment, and the Chinese as far as I know haven’t produced a fake second generation shuffle yet.
srry. but the truth remains the truth

Yup, seen em, lots of them. I’ve seen a very similar Shuffle ripoff that was said to have 512MB of memory… Gosh, will these Chinese boys ever learn?

The top one is a real iPod.

The bottom one is a radio/remote thingy. I tried holding it like the picture did and it looks the same.
