chinaiPhone.jpgThere are a few certain truths in life, and one of them is anything that can be made cheaply and sold for a profit will be pirated in China! We’re hearing that Chinese pirates, who have copied video games, golf clubs and perfume, have now cloned the iPhone.

But not only that… they’ve supposedly made it better by including a Linux-based OS on board. This has allowed the “ChiPhone” to run software that the iPhone won’t run, plus it work on cellphone carriers besides AT&T. So the question remains: why doesn’t someone hire these guys to make real products?
