Chinese iPad knockoff released – runs Windows 7

iPad was launched in the U.S. just a few weeks ago and it may not be launched internationally till early part of May. But it did not take much time for China to launch their version of the iPad .Currently this knockoff version of iPad is available in the city of Shenzhen, which is near to the border of Hong Kong.

The shape of this ‘iPad’ is not like the real iPad but more like an iPhone although larger in size. Its screen size is about 10 inches and it runs Windows 7. The price difference between the original iPad and this Chinese iPad is $90 as this clone is available for $410. So, the price difference is not enough to attract customers. But still some people would buy this to save $90 and some because it has Windows 7 in it.

Apart from this it has three USB ports in it and definitely because of Windows  it would support all the video formats but still it wont have amazing apps like iPad. Lin, seller of these iPad clones mentioned.

This is just the first rough version. Eventually, the factories will be able to make a much better copy.

This iPad clone may interest a lot of customers in China but not else where. iPad offers much more than a tablet running Windows in terms of user experience, based on which it sold so well since launch.
