Gradiente, a Brazilian mobile phone company, has just released the “iphone Neo One.” Yep, you read that right. The company somehow managed to acquire the trademark for the name in 2008, though this is the first time the company has used the “iphone” branding in a product line. Even though Apple doesn’t own rights to the name in Brazil, we’re pretty sure that Apple will attempt to sue the pants off Gradiente at some point in the near future.
So, what does the iphone Neo One bring to the table? The phone boasts a 599 Brazilian Real price tag, which is equal to roughly $287 USD. As far as internals go, the iphone sports a 700MHz processor, 2GB of upgradable internal storage and 3G connectivity with dual-sim capabilities. Ironically enough, the iphone Neo One runs Android 2.3.4, a version of Android that is outdated by almost two years. As far as the phone’s design goes, it looks similar to the HTC Wildfire S. Don’t expect a Retina display with your iphone either, as it houses 320 x 480 pixel display.
