SE Xperia X1 rip-off spotted in China

As the workshop for the world, China is famous for its industrious engineers. They are also pretty famous for pretty lax adherence to trade and copyright laws, leading to huge industry in producing fake merchandise. The Sony Ericsson Experia X1, not even released yet, is the latest device to fall victim to this trade.

The SongLive X1 features the same styling as the SE X1, and in some ways the specs even exceed the Experia. The camera is a claimed 5 megapixel, and the device features a built-in TV tuner. It seems a bit of stolen Tilt is in there too, with a very nice full tilt mechanism, vs Sony’s more limited arc-slider.

On the other than, the device does not run Windows Mobile, but rather a Chinese mobile OS, and there is no sign of Sony’s panel interface. Also, even from the pictures, it appears built-quality leaves much to be desired.
