Android G2 Dream Gets Alibaba-ed


Alibaba is an international business-to-business portal where, more often than not, international buyers connect with Chinese and Asian manufacturers. But if you search the site for Android it’ll sing you a sweet nursery song remix called Ali-Ba-Ba-Black Market have you any Androids. And yes sir, yes sir they have G2s:


Hmmmm… that definitely doesn’t look like the leaked G2 Pics from Gizmodo last week.

The above G2 listing is from a company called Star Glory Electronic which was founded in 2002. They’ve got 250 employees and an R&D team of 20 people. The most likely scenario is that they’re just calling this thing the Android G2 Dream because… they can. The only thing we can be sure about is that their employees are good at dressing in white and following directions:


We’re not surprised at any of this… at all. But what IS surpising is how many different devices on AliBaba are calling themselves the G2, Dream or some other play on the assumed upcoming brand line from HTC/TMO. We searched Alibaba for Andriod G2 and want to share some of the devices claiming rights to the same crown:

The photoshop geniuses with a billion status notifications at Blong Electronics:

Or maybe they’ll just sell the G1 and call it the G2?

How about a Goonies version of the G2 called Chunk by Tin Hung Technology?

And the list goes on…


Is it safe to say that you would gladly stay impatient for a few more months rather than have one of these be the G2 that will inevitably launch? Oh yeah and hey, foreign countries? What are you doing with your spare time when it comes to like… law enforcement and trademark infringement and stuff like that? Hello?

  4. Hey, I was reading an engadget article earlier that had a comment in it that showed a guy offering a link for concepts of his wishful “G2.” This chinese site is probably using these pictures to scam people out of money.

    Heres the article,

    or you can google: “How would you change the G1”

    The post is the really long one. The link he offers is to a forum:
