Is it a plane? Is it a Windows Phone? No, it's a... Lemon?

They say copying is a form of flattery, so both HTC and Microsoft should be feeling so with this low-end device that has appeared on Indian Times. The device, a Lemon T109 Dual SIM Mobile Watch, appears to be rocking a Windows Phone UI, but isn't actually a handset running Microsoft's OS. Odd, right?

Priced at just 2,999 Indian Rupees (approx. $54), the device is a cheap offering that comes with a 4GB SD card and a Reebok watch. We've checked the device on the manufacturer's website and there's no indication that it runs Windows Phone, or another other OS for that matter.

It's either a mistake or someone was just lazy, but it's humorous to see hardware appearing to run Windows Phone.

  • <p sab="1468">Who needs a Lumia when I can get a Lemon?&nbsp; The U2 fan inside me is giddy with delight.&nbsp; Love the stylish lack of a Start button.</p>
  • Haha. It also has two Phone tiles and HTC Photo Enhancer? Sold!
  • Didn't click it was dual sim until I saw the Phone tiles and wondered why.
  • Looks like an HTC Diamond
  • Looks like that company exclusively sells KIRF-y knockoffs. 
  • Dial SIMs, dual phone tiles. That's high-tech.
  • Wow...thank you come again
  • Racist comment
  • Round & round you are a sad pathetic soul. Get a life and stop trolling.
  • +1 for you......I've seen him around too.......
  • Loll....
    There is Indian version of iphone as well... :D it looks like iphone, UI as well :D :D
  • I find it funny that they choose to mimic an HTC that runs windows phone when they could have just put that clanky robot OS on there and called it a day. I think I really says something about WP when a knock off would try and mimic the modern UI instead of just loading gingerbreak or something to that effect.
    It is futile.
  • OMG!!
  • Bahaha
  • Hahaha, you should call and ask if you get 2 phones for the price of 1.
  • Hahahahahahaha........
    oooohh...stomach hurts.....
  • Whoa! They really haven't noticed this error upto now?? Hello FTC.....
  • Finally, someone mislabeling a WP device the other way. Too often its a WP labeled as Android!
  • I typed in my zip code and its says the phone wouldn't work in my area .
  • Day 17, and they still suspect nothing...
  • "Lemon" - we have manufacturing laws here in the states about that. Not a name we could use here! Haha
  • I do believe that the $54 price tag falls far below the lemon law lol
  • True
  • At least the got the color right :-)
  • ha! That looks like my old Touch Pro with the little circle at the bottom but... Runs "WinDown7" (since its not "WP" OS) jejeje
  • India is going high tech everyday.
  • Lemon.... still better thn apple
  • You will find 10000s of these types of device here :P
