Want a Nokia N79 Ferrari TV Phone?
Of course it’s a knock-off but the sales ladies will tell you this upfront — “Sir, it’s a China phone”. I replied back “But the real Nokia phones are also made in China!”. Just take a look at this fake Ferrari-inspired Nokia N79++ TV.
For only Php4,800 (and you can still haggle), you get a dual-SIM phone with TV tuner and etched with a Ferrari logo. It doesn’t even look close to the original Nokia N79 — that’s probably because this knock-off was made way before Nokia even announced the model.
But why do people keep on buying these knock-offs? Well, first it’s dirt cheap and then it offers kick-ass features Nokia doesn’t do — an over-the-air TV tuner and dual-SIM. The saying that nobody will sell them if nobody will buy still holds true.
