We cant blame some small time manufacturer for doing this, after all even the big names like Samsung and Google have been accused of stealing from Apple. A Chinese manufacturer has made an iPad 2 replica but unlike any other replica it boasts very powerful innards too. The fake iPad 2 has 1.2 GHz Processor, 1 GB RAM, 4 GB Internal Storage Memory. Sounds good, doesn’t it ?
We have earlier seen rip offs of Apple iPod’s, iPhone’s, website and guess what we even have a fake Steve Jobs Biography running in the market. While most rip offs are just look alikes and have no performance this one is a pretty exception.
Lets take a quick look at the fake iPad 2 specifications :
- Android 2.3.
- 1.2 GHz Freescale iMX535 processor.
- 1GB of RAM.
- 4GB of internal storage space.
- 9.7-inch, 1024×768 multi-touch Display.
- 2 megapixel and 3 megapixel cameras located on the front and back of the unit respectively.
- 7600 mAh battery (continual video playback for a more-than-respectable 7 hours).
- dual-channel speaker, Bluetooth and has 3G connectivity.
- 243 x 190 x 11.5 mm dimensions (Thinner than the original iPad ).
We often, come across rip offs but rarely do we notice such a product which has such specifications. Although the tablet is extremely iOS’y the device runs on Android 2.3. The price and availability have not yet been mentioned but we can assume it to be less that what Apple sells an original iPad 2.
