We reported last week that an ARM powered iPad clone was nearing launch and now we have spy shots of the device running a very familiar looking O.S. The Shenzhen maker has modified Android to mimic the look of the iPad’s operating system, and give it a suitable body to boot!
On board specs look pretty good too, with a 600Mhz ARM processor, 256M memory, and built in storage ranging from a puny 1GB to a monstrous 64GB.
Gizchina News of the week
Unfortunately the model shown in the pictures seems to have omitted a lot of the functions that made it look so desirable, such as USB ports and SD card reader.
The Shenzhen made iPad clone will be available from April in 7 inch form. The 10 inch model shown in the pictures is going through a prototype debugging stage so will be launched after the 7 inch, possibly in May.
More news and hands on soon!
