Motorolo Foid X is the WinMo 6.5 Droid X Knock-Off to Rule them All



Yeah you read that right. This is the Motorolo Foid X. The brilliantly named knock-off actually does a pretty stellar job of ripping off the original, right down to the Verizon logo. They make a big concession in including Windows Mobile 6.5 rather than Android, a recurring theme among these Chinese clones. Were not sure what’s on the inside, but chances are it’s not pretty, especially considering the copy’s $244 price tag.

  1. Don’t they have to pay Microsoft for a license? Wouldn’t it have been easier/cheaper to do with Android? Why bother knocking off something you have to license anyway?

  2. They may have to pay a license, but I bet it is dirt cheap paying for win mo 6.5 as nobody wants it anyway. I am sure Microsoft is happy to get ANYTHING for that POS OS.

  3. Yeah.. a licence.. lol. I bet verizon and moto was paid too?

  4. I bet you that Motorola and Verizon were paid nothing. And to sue over copyright infringement they would have to file suit in a Chinese Court to really enforce any monetary punitive damages… And that is just not going to happen.

  5. It’s not actually called the Motorolo Foid X, that’s a name Engadget came up with in the context of “They didn’t even bother calling it the…”. (Read the article before you transcribe it…)

  6. What I´m most interested in is how hard would it be to get Android running on it :D

  7. I would be surprised if they paid MS…I’m sure it’s a gray-market knock-off all the way.

  8. Wonder if it’s the same hardware as the DX. If so, that price is a steal, and i certainly hope it does get its bootloader hijacked for Android abilities.

  9. Hey Kevin just an FYI, that phone is actually running Windows Mobile 6.5.3 which is still not fully officially released. I wonder what sys build they are using on it, I doubt it would be difficult to get Android running on it once the hardware and drivers are examined
