The Meizu miniOne is almost an exact clone of Apple's iPhone and it's sure to be raising some eyebrows in Cupertino's Infinite Loop.

First reported by Engadget in late January, the Meizu M8 (as it was known then) is reported to measure 57 x 105 x 11.5mm with both a GSM and Chinese TD-SCDMA 3G radio, 3.3-inch 720x480 pixel display, Bluetooth, 3 megapixel camera and an ARM11 CPU capable of recording video at 30fps at full 720 x 480 resolution.
Gizmodo added that Meizu miniOne runs WinCE 6.0 and has a TV output.

And how about those icons? Look familiar
iCal icon
?

If the user interface and industrial design of the miniOne weren't enough to get the ire of Apple, Inc.'s ferocious lawyers, there's a couple of icons that Apple is sure to take issue with. Not only is the calendar icon a dead ringer for iCal, but the third one in the top row looks suspiciously like Apple's forthcoming Time Machine.

I'm sure that Apple legal already has the paperwork drafted and that it's being review by Steve Jobs himself this morning. C'mon Meizu, you didn't really think that this was going to slip under the radar, did you?
