No idea what that "All rights reserved" means.

http://www.commodorecorp.com/ should hold C=
trademark.

Looking at their site tells what they do with it
just try to browse.

EDIT:
This is the company that designed it :

It looks pretty but it is just another Android phone to me.  I'm looking for new hardware and have been buying books on ARM processors so my plan is to be a producer and not a consumer unless I am buying raw tech.  The maker and D.I.Y. movement has more going on right now so join the maker movement.

That's perhaps the most hideous looking smart phone I've seen in years.

And I say that as someone who owned a Blackberry Storm, lol.

The funny thing is that the designer of this phone says he based it on the look of the C64. I don't see that at all....maybe there are some elements of the Commodore tank mouse, but thats more connected with the Amiga than the C64.

Bad business move.  Why christen your company with the name of a failed enterprise?  That's like naming a new cruise ship the Titanic.

There was an Aussie billionaire planning to build a replica Titanic but I just read that it is on hold because he is having financial difficulties.

They've already got a bit of free publicity amongst some die-hards..

He won a seat at the last Federal election and is now a sitting MP.

They are going to be releasing a C=64 inspired phone. What a joke. There is even one called  pet ;-)

Just check out their FB page.
