Rumors about a possible mini iPad or 8” iPad from Apple keep surfacing and disappearing then re-surfacing again.
Although it’s an exciting roller-coaster ride of speculation for us, the constant too’ing and fro’ing is too much for some, so much so that someone at Shenzhen based Herokin decided to stop waiting for a possible iPad nano and just make their own!
The device is an 8” Android 2.2 tablet with a A8 Cortex CPU running at 800Mhz, and gets USB, SD card reader plus optional GPS, web camera and external 3G (although they are working on getting 3G built in a some point).
