They are very, very cheap, some cynics would say too 'cheap' and incredibly butt ugly. They appear to have been designed by ferret on speed. There is little info and they are single colour only. Barge+pole+do+not+touch.

you all.i thought what the hey £14.50 i bought one!.there not bad at all!.im not so sure on the movie playing but photo viewer is good!.it comes with 2 internal battries(rechargable),quick start guide,software/app/games cd.the cybiko acts as a external drive so you only need copy the files to "external drive".18mhz chip,500k memory with expansion slot.but there is things like chat,and texting,walkie talkie combo.300M com range,ive had lots of fun so far...........thanks for all comments

Ah I think I remember these Cybiko thingys. Wasn't there an advert on television about this long ago where it was really Japanesey and had a stupid idiot doing the stereotypical Japanese/Chinese guy trying to talk English. And I remember it showed all these features that it was capable off i.e. comunications, games, chat etc. And it really did look more like a toy instead.

yes they look like walkie talkies,but there great,i have got some of my freinds to get one,no one here has a cybiko do they?.id like to know how you play B/W movies on them,or maybe it isn't possible?.thanks
