The Apple-ish 10.2 inch P-P-P88 tablet PC by Shenzhen Dragon Brother Industrial
In what may be the first case of a manufacturer trying to clone a product that doesn’t even exist yet, China company Shenzhen Dragon Brother Industrial has introduced their own “Apple Style” tablet — the P-P-P88 (catchy, eh?).
It runs off an Intel Atom Mobile N270 CPU and has 1GB of DDR2 memory (expandable to 2GB) with 160GB HDD. The 10.2 inch touch screen is 1024×600 resolution and LED-backlit. It features Wifi b/g with optional 3G and has a 3-in-1 SD, MS and MMC card reader. It comes with tons of plugs — including 3 USB 2.0, mic jack, headphone jack, network cable and “external display interface.” The tablet weighs two and a quarter pounds and measures 11 x 7 x 0.87 inches.
Aside from trying to clone a, as of yet, unannounced device, the other fatal flaw they made trying to clone the Apple Tablet would be having it run Windows XP. There are some product shots that show it with Windows 7, but that’s still a swing and a miss. Of course SDBI isn’t trying to make an “actual” Apple Tablet clone, but we’ll see how close they’ve come design-wise in a few months. The main flaw in the P-P-P88 (aside from the model name) is that the battery life lasts an atrocious 90 minutes. It will sell for 2,300 Yuan ($338 US).
