Lenovo has re-skinned the Android OS and thrown away Google’s hand-crafted interface in favor of a more familiar look and feel. It has a suspiciously similar name and a sleek design with a single ‘Home’ button. The only real difference is the large search area at the top, a feature that some might even like for the iPhone, at least until Spotlight comes along in iPhone OS 3.0.
What’s interesting is that this illustrates just how modifiable the Android OS can be. We doubt this will sway iPhone owners to make a switch, but you never know. The Lenovo OPhone was always going to have a touch of the iPhone about it, but this may be overkill. Just how do they expect to respond to Apple’s legal department?
