Here come the clones

Supposedly available 3 months ago the China clone dubbed “aPad” is yet another cloned product. 7″ screen, WiFi, Android 1.5, does not work with iTunes (which is a plus for me), AND only $210US.

While hackers continue to rip apart the Apple OS and work on a China version it is only a matter of time. Is there anything the Chinese can’t make a cheap copy of? Better features but certainly not equal quality so buyer beware. If you’re not faint of heart hit up the local shops in Shenzhen and remember to haggle, always haggle.

The delay of international shipments from Apple should only boost the demand for other products from competitors. The Nook and Kindle are both moving to better integrate an all around entertainment device to better serve their customer base in hopes of satisfying those staring longingly at the iPad. So long as both devices remain a true ebook reader then their fans should be happy.
