Oh dear! Oh deary me! All the rumors pointed at a November launch of a smaller 7-8 inch iPad. All the gadget blogs said it was going to happen, there were even ‘sneak’ shots of ‘prototype’ bezels, but nothing! Well except a rather splendid looking Macbook Air refresh (which has already seen the clone treatment).
It’s not just us gadgeteers who’ve been let down by the lack of ‘iPad Mini’ (is the iPad really that big?) but also the Shenzhen clone makers!
This (again) rather splendid looking iPad clone was ready to launch at the exact moment Job’s and co. were expected to launch the newer, lighter, more e-book friendly ‘Tiny’ iPad.
There was no iPad refresh however, and this little guy has had to drag itself into the market only to be compared to the rest of the clones already available.
