Colorfly’s already-aimed-at-budget-wallets Colorfly U781 Q1 is a capable enough tablet for someone looking to enter the world of Android tablets. It ships with Android 4.2.2, has a quad-core CPU running at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a mini HDMI port, and a front and back camera combo set at 2MP and 5MP respectively. The Colorfly U781 Q1 launched at the price of 889CNY (146USD, 107EUR) then dropped to 799CNY but is now running for an ultra cheap 668CNY (110USD, 80EUR) on yixun.com
The Colorfly U781 Q1 has been called by more than a few as an “iPad Mini Clone” because it has a very similar look. Its screen size and shape also mirrors Apple’s product, sitting at 7.85inches with a 4:3 ratio. Unlike the iPad Mini‘s Retina display, the Colorfly U781 Q1’s screen is only 1024×768, which is a significant downgrade.
Still, for a hair over a hundred dollars, you can have a device that makes people think you have an iPad Mini, and after all, isn’t that what Christmas is really about?
For international buyers, the Colorfly U781 can be had for $150 at Aliexpress.com or for various prices elsewhere.
