Apple responds to freeze on Meizu M8 sales Apple CEO Steve Jobs has responded to the current freeze on Meizu M8 sales, accusing the company of blatant theft.
In an email response, Jobs responded to "why?" by saying, "because they stole our ideas and intellectual property."

The Chinese Intellectual Property Office halted M8 production and all marketing recently, and many were curious why.

Meizu's M8 is a touchscreen multimedia/smartphone device that runs on Windows Mobile 6.

From an aesthetic standpoint, the device looks very much like an iPhone 3GS.

Meizu's upcoming M9 has a different design and will use a customized Android operating system. It may turn out that Meizu just lets the M8 die as the M9 will be released in December.

It does not look like the iphone4...the styling signatures of the iPhone4 are the external antenna and glass back that cause so many problems...this phone has neither; it is just another touchscreen phone...and not even a good one. It looks nothing like the iPhone4, and it looks even less like the older iPhones. Apple is just doing this to say, "We own china, don't try to make a smartphone here".
