Here's an example of a hit-and-run operation selling illegal clones:

The server of the company actually selling the thing is already down, I expect the alibaba page to go away soon, so I've attached a zipped webarchive of said page to insure your entertainment, pdf would have been above 100k ;) .

It'll be interesting to see whether Apple will be able to keep this kind of products below significant levels of marketshare...

YES!

I dont buy fakes... and I dont buy things that look like the love child of a inflight black box recorder and Cryton from Red Dwarf!
