Chinese own version of "Big Mobile Brands"

Do these brands sound familiar: Nokla, Nokta, Suny Ericssom, Scny Ericsscn, AiFeng, Veptu?

Copying and trademark infringement has always been a big problem for international brands in Asia and its a much bigger problem in China. To illustrate, I have included images and picture of various mobile models to be imitating very closely their international counterparts! Check and see whether you can spot the differences.

In a nation where counterfeiting costs companies worldwide billions of dollars a year, according to the U.S. government, selling of such fake merchandise should be discouraged because counterfeiting undercuts honest competition and rewards illegal competitors, and even defraud innocent customers.
