While most tablets released since the launch of the first generation iPad include many features directly inspired by Apple’s tablet, we’ve never seen a device that similar to the original: Chinese manufacturer Easydy started selling an iPad 2 knock-off, that looks and feels almost like the real deal – minus the Apple logo and the apps.
The tablet has the same shape as the iPad 2, offers front and rear cameras, but is slightly thicker, and comes with a plastic shell.
The specs of the device are clearly lagging, as the clone comes with a 800×600 pixels screen, a single-core 800 Mhz ARM processor, 256 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of flash storage – in comparison, the iPad 2 comes with a 1024×768 pixels screen, a dual-core 1 GHz ARM processor, 512 MB of RAM, and at least 16 GB of flash storage.
Don’t expect to be able to use iOS apps with the device, as the tablet will come with Android 2.2, but at least it’s dirt cheap, as it costs only $98. So if you’re looking for the iPad 2 look (from afar) without the cost, this device might be for you.
