The Chinese manufacturers are great at producing marvelous products which features good performance while retaining the shape and size of some of the most popular gadgets in the market.
First one was Meizu MX which is a droid that is designed exactly like the IPhone. From the shape to the home button everything was copied from the famous iPhone and Meizu MX was born.
Although Chinese have made sure that the device runs on android and they have performed some heavy customization on the android OS so much that it now looks and behaves like a completely different OS and so the Chinese have dubbed it the Flame OS.
Now apparently the Chinese have done it again. They have released an android tablet that looks and feels exactly as an IPad would. This knock off of IPad is so expertly done that you can’t tell the difference from the original IPad unless you start using the device.
The knock off ipad is produced by Shenzhen Career technology and tablet was an instant hit among the Chinese customers. If you look a closer look at the images of the tablet then you can clearly tell that the Chinese company can clearly be sued for copy write infringement.
The knock of ipad tablets is known as CM9701 tablet and is a perfect copy of the Ipad from far but on closer inspection you can see that there are differences that sets it apart from the original Ipad tablet.
Features that Differentiate It From The IPad:
- No apple logo at the back of the device
- Small front facing camera at the top of the device
- Black plastic cover which protects the 3G antenna is removable to access the SD card slot which is clearly not present anywhere in Ipad.
Other than these small differences the device is completely identical to the original ipad. But one thing you can rejoice about is that the tablet has passed the FCC checks and according to the FCC reports the tablet packs some impressive powerful specs that will put the ipad to shame.
Specs coupled with android which has been skinned to look and behave almost the same iOS makes sure that you get the apple experience but with a bit of android flavor.
The OS is pretty fast and responsive and amazing thing is that the music player is designed and functions almost the same as the one found in the ipad. Among other features that you won’t ever get in ipad is the micro SD card slot and Bluetooth with which you can transfer contents to other devices without the need for any third party apps.
If CM9701 is ever released in US Markets its guaranteed to be an instant hit among customers because you get the same form factor as an ipad but without the disadvantages that you get with iOS.
