picA reader has spotted another iPod clone at MP3mall.net. The Vonee Digital Jukebox M7 20GB has a similar look to the iPod as well as it being white. We’ve tried to learn more about the company Vonee, but found nothing of revelance on the Internet. Recently we reported that Apple had ‘threatened to sue’ Samsung over its latest Yepp MP3 player (in which they changed the design before releasing it to the public), and this makes us wonder if Apple is seeking other possible lawsuits as well.

IMHO it does not look similar to the iPod. Apple will probably not go after them, even if they were in fact copying the iPod.

Actually, you guys are wrong.
Apple did invent the mp3 player. Also only Apple should use the color white because it is the “Apple Style”. It is no one elses style to use white, so they shouldnt.

P.S. I WANT SOFTWARE 2.0 FOR MY OLD POD!
