Optimus Touch – a $109 iPod Touch knock-off

optimustouch.jpg

The Optimus Touch is a cheap iPod Touch knock-off fresh from China that is now available for $109 . That’s 1/3 of the price of the iPod touch, but based on the vide below, it looks like you’re getting what you pay for.

The guy in the video speaks positively of the device, but he’s selling it at the same time – so it’s hardly a non-biased review.

It looks to me like the touch screen on the thing isn’t terribly responsive, and the video author’s instance that the interface is only “like” the iPod Touch, and somehow not a direct copy is completely ridiculous. It even has Apple inspired knock-off icons.

Still, if you want to save a few bucks and seriously disappoint someone this holiday season, you can do so by clicking here.

  1. Yeh, ask your wife if she wants a fake bouquet of roses for Valentines’s day! Funny.

  2. They have fake roses out there…

    If I were that guy I’d be embarrassed to be in such a video. It seems video resume support and playlists are extremely important.

    YEA FOR CHINA!!
    and their second-hand, knock-off, crap?

  4. way to rip off the names of two popular gadgets at once… optimus maximus, anyone?

  5. Someone in their forums called it “sexy”.

    Right.

  6. I got to the part where he said how big the storage space was and turned it off. The player looks horrible, and anyone who actually uses the letters “G” “B” to tell you the size of the storage instead of saying Gigs or something similar doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

    I wouldn’t even consider buying from these guys.

  7. Wow that sucks. I’m glad I got my iPod touch :)

    Lead paint is included, right? And does it come in BROWN?

  9. optimus touch rules…finnally we got a good music player for an afordable price how are u gonna sell when ur “great” product cost 300 bucks?

  10. Well, the only good thing i can see is the camera, you dont get that on an ipod touch. still, no web browser, only up to 4 gigs of space…
    its a no for me.

  11. Well to all of you people talking about how bad the optimus touch is and how much better the ipod touch is, Maybe you should consider that not all people has $300 to blow on a mp3/mp4 players. So in my eyes if you want a halfway decent mp3/mp4 player that cost alot less go with the optimus touch, but if you have money coming out of your butt get the ipod touch im sure it is alot better than the optimus touch, but i’m saving a little money and getting the optimus. If it breaks or messes up Owell at least it wasnt $300 down the drain!

  12. what the heck is the orange button in the middle for?? Is it for decoration cuz if it is i mean WTF

  13. I just got mine that I bought on Ebay for $94 “shipped” from Hong Kong. It took 2 weeks to arrive but I expected that.
    I think there have been quite a few upgrades since this thread started. The new ones have 8gb internal and you can add a 4gb micro SD card for a total of 12gb. The camera doesnt have a super high resolution but if your not going to blow it up and wallpaper your house its works fine. The new one also has video capture that is supprisingly good. It also comes with a video conversion CD that allows you to rip your DVD’s to a compact AVI file. With the 8 gb factory memory it can store 3-4 full length movies.
    For under $100 the new 8gig model is the best bang for the buck.

  14. To Andrew,
    You don’t sell it and if you do you’ll probably get your momey back off of it…

  18. well, if u guys don’t want to spend the 300 bucks then get the Telcast 50. beware of fakes though because theres tones out there. it is a “clone” of touch, but it is much better than optimus.

  23. Sam- No. Don’t get it. It sucks. (not to be rude) If the makers can’t even come up with their own app icons then this is a total rip and you will be dissapointed if you get to mess around with a ipod for a while and see all i’s features. (look at the setting app, excactly the sam as the ipod’s.)
