FS: Visual Land 8GB Video Player (iPod Touch Knockoff)

I don't think this is a regular item. Anyone seen this before?

Looks sketchy. Some of the icons are virtually identical to iPod touch/iPhone.

They probably won't carry these for much longer than the holidays to avoid lawsuits lol.

I'm picturing such an awkward scenario where a teenager asks their parents for an iPod touch and they come home with one of these.

Personally, I would stear clear of this

If they carried this in store this week I would try and pawn it off on my wife as the ipod touch she wanted for xmas...
And when she has technical issues with it and you need to help her solve them. Then what? :twisted:

you mean this?

still looks meh... just keep in mind that youre still spending $80 on something that is not an iPod Touch. This stuff costs nothing to make, especially since their was little to no cost on concept, design, & engineering.

I have nothing against knock-off electronics, but I don't like seeing them in big-box stores where they are being sold for way more than they're worth. Especially since the first thing everyone thinks theyre seeing in the ad is an iPod touch. (Which, conveniently, they also sell). Note there is no actual price reduction on this item too.

If you make an informed decision that this indeed has adequate capabilities for your needs and it meets your budget, by all means.

still pretty sad for a boxing day ad!

Maybe a good gag gift?! an expensive one at that...

or!!.... or...


Buy this AND an iPod touch, make her unwrap this one first and watch the awkward disapointment on her face, then just as shes about to move on, pull out the real iPod Touch for her to unwrap. (Just make sure she doesnt open the actual Visual Land box so you can return it to FutureShop)

Heh, I wouldn't get it for her except for a joke.

I'm actually trying to get my hands on an empty wii fit box, maybe a display box from the store. Her sister is actually getting her the wii fit. Ill put the actual ipod touch in the wii fit box taped into the corner, with lots of packing material hiding it, and a note saying 'if you ask too much for something, you won't get it'

She's been pestering relentlessly for the wii fit and an ipod touch for months. I figure we might as well have some fun with it xmas morning...

It looks really lame. It could also be downright insulting to receive one as a gift, "Look at the iPod I just got you!"
Deal with it.

Wow...an iPod touch with an FM tuner!! This seals the deal for me.

Packing my overnight bag as I type...camping out for this one for sure!
Hopefully FS won't be sold out when I get there.

LOL!
