    Chinese iPed released in Shenzhen for only US$105 and it runs on Google Android!

    China Rips Off The iPad With The iPed


    Geez, wonder if Apple will still let them produce the next gen of iPad or iPhone there.

    But, this iPed has a smaller 7" screen and runs on Android. At these prices, I might be tempted to order one and see how it works!

    Anyone bought and iPed already?

    Not too sure if this is the same device, but I like the idea of having a micro USB port built into the device.

    Wish the iPad had implemented it!

    There are several videos embedded in the above link. Check it out in YouTube.

    The wePad looks less like an Apple copy and more like a Windows/Linux Tablet PC with an iPad-like launcher.

    EDIT: Actually it doesnt look much at all like the iPad.

    I think the question that is on everyone's mind : Will it run Flash?

    I mean, at $100 bucks, I don't mind buying one for X'mas for my nephew or nieces so that they won't hoard the iPad when they come over to my place!:)

    I shudder to think just how crappy a piece of hardware that will be.

    Well, I'm from Singapore and we do have a number of these crappy stuff being sold here. I bought one of the China made MP4 players and after using it for 8 months, the damn thing got so hot and crumbled into pieces. That's why their warranty is only good for 3-6 months.

    But, I'm not too sure how long the Apad will last. Was watching it on Youtube.

    I could probably make something better with a soldering iron and some junk lying around my house.

    I'm not impressed at all, not even a little bit. Might give hp's tablet a try, but it sure won't replace this iPad. This magical lil device has changed me lol.
