Zenithink iPad clones are kinda impressive
Typically Shenzhen China manufacturers spend the majority of their time getting their clones to look like the original source, but rarely any time making the specs worthwhile. iPad clones in the past have looked the part to differing degrees, but rarely held their own when it came to the guts — usually settling for a weak Atom N270 processor and pitifully low RAM.
So it’s a little shocking when we see a clone tablet with some meat on its replicated bones. In this case, the meat is a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor with an Android 2.1 operating system. The bones differ. Zenithink has two sizes of tablets available, both with the A8 processor but one with a 7-inch 800 x 480 resolution touchscreen and the other with a 10-inch 1024 x 600 resolution touchscreen. They also offer both tablets with either capacitive or resistive versions of the screen. In addition to that, both have top out specs of 512MB of RAM, 16GB of internal flash storage and a 2400mAH battery (which will most likely garner 4+ hours). The Zenithink tablets will also be capable of supporting 1080p HD playback.
Word is they’re set for a mid-June release but there’s no word on how much these doppelgangers may cost.
