The clone wars have begun with an Apple iPad clone from China surfacing recently. On the surface, the clone, whose manufacturer remains unknown at this time, appears to be a pretty good facsimile of the original device.
However, on closer inspection is where you begin to spot the differences between the two devices. The clone is powered by a 600MHz ARM CPU whereas the iPad itself includes Apple’s own 1GHz A4 processor. The clone also comes with a 10-inch screen display with a wider screen resolution whereas in comparison, the original has a 9.7-inch screen display.
The other big difference between the two devices is in the operating system with the clone running a customized Google Android phone operating system that mimics the user interface of the iPad OS.
Little else is known about this cloned device at this time other then the price point which has been established at roughly $150 US. As to be expected, there are no plans for this device to ever make its way stateside.
