While walking the CES show floor, CNET's Kent German spotted a wide range of familiar handsets at the Eyo Asia Electronic booth. But what looks like an iPhone and a BlackBerry are really just imitators.
Though Eyo Asia's small booth was overshadowed by the huge presence of RIM nearby, I couldn't pass up a long table of unique cell phones. Though I'd never seen these before, many were eerily familiar.

No, hardly an iPhone, but the H003 certainly tried to look like an Apple device. It does beat the iPhone on a couple features, though. Inside you'll find two SIM card slots, an FM radio, and a memory card slot.

Candy Apple red
Also an iPhone imitator, the JC357 comes in a bold color scheme. And check out those menu icons.

Not quite a BlackBerry
The TV533 does its best to look like a BlackBerry. Features include two cameras, an FM radio, and support for analog TV. Notice the long antenna extending from the top-left corner.

Not big in Japan
This swivel design has been popular on Japanese TV-ready phones for years.

More TV time
Another handset built for TV is the 3650. It reminded me of a few Samsung handsets.

Not so Sony Ericsson
The M99 is a dead ringer for a range of Sony Ericsson music phones. I was especially struck by the slider design, the music keys, and the design of the keypad buttons.

An iPhone with a keyboard?
Tough some iPhone users would love a folding keyboard, I doubt Apple will deliver. So if you're feeling adventurous, you can get the T7000. It's a world phone with two cameras, Bluetooth, an FM radio, and analog TV support.
