If you hadn’t already heard, the Goopad Mini is the $99 Android alternative to Apple’s iPad Mini. If offers the same styling with the only external difference being the use of a mini USB in place of Apple’s Lightning connector.
Oringinaly the Goopad Mini was set for a November release date, however word of the iPad Mini clone has been very quiet up until now. While we still have no idea of when the Goopad mini will release, we do now know the full specification for this awesome tablet!
The official Goopad Mini specs claim the tablet will have an 8-inch 1024 x 768 display just like Apple’s tablet. The CPU will be a 1.4GHz dual-core Rockchip RK3066 processor with 1GB of DDR2 ram plus there will be 8gb of built in memory. Of course as this is an Android tablet the Goopad mini iPad mini clone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rather than iOS.
