Softbank gives equal time to iPhone clone Dynapocket

Hoping to corner the market on touchscreen smartphones in Japan, Softbank has now started offering what many see as an iPhone clone in the Dynapocket X02T. The phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.5 and has a slightly larger form factor that makes it a bit handier for using the phone as a substitute ebook reader.

With a menu layout that closely mirrors that of the iPhone, the 3G network-enabled Dynapocket also offers Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 3.2 megapixel camera, a 1-gigahertz CPU, access to Windows Marketplace for Mobile and YouTube video playback. Speaking of YouTube, you can see recent video of film director Quentin Tarantino cavorting in a new Softbank commercial here.
