Fake Nokia Handsets Seized in India

india.jpgIt isn’t uncommon to find counterfeit goods coming out of India, but last weekend Indian policed seized fake Nokia mobile phones worth approximately $40,000. The Indian government received a tip-off from the Nokia staff, and a total of ninety handsets were found at a warehouse in the Watgunge, just outside Kolkata.

The investigation suggests that the mobile handsets may have come from Delhi, and likely would have been shipped to shops across the country.

What isn’t clear is whether the phones, which would be sold without valid papers, would work just like the N-series. It is also unclear whether the phones utilized the same type of chips or cellular circuits as real N-series phones from Nokia.
