ZTC Presents the iPhone-like 321

Since the first moment the iPhone was mentioned, people have been struggling to find out more about it, what it will look like or what features it will bring, and as in the case of any highly expected device that was overly rumored, no one knows exactly what it will look like in the end.

Considering this, it is best that I should start by saying that the phone presented here is not the iPhone, but a Chinese company's iPhone look-alike that was at first rumored to be the iPhone, produced in the spirit of copying whatever design was used before and turned out to be a success.

The ZTC 321 does sport an iPod like scroll wheel and is somewhat similar design-wise to an iPod which goes to show how some Chinese mobile phone designers would rather 'adopt' an idea then come up with their own.

Leaving design aside, the ZTC 321 features a 260k color screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, MP3 player and video playback. There is no information regarding the storage capacity, but the handset is said to include a MicroSD card slot for memory expansion.

The design is not as great as one would expect, even though the handheld was intended to be very similar to an iPod, but not that bad either, so some people might like it.
