Do you cherish the desire of having an iPad? It’s quite obvious. We all know iPad is the best selling tablet. But droid lovers can’t purchase iPad as this runs iOS not Android. The solution? Yes, there is indeed. GooPhone, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer is working on a iPad like tablet that just looks like iPad from all possible angles. It’s none other than GooPad mini. The UI is not regular Android 1 JellyBean UI. The manufacturer have customized it in such a way that looks like original iOS UI.
GooPad Mini Rips off iPad Mini
GooPad Mini was announced long ago. But in last few months we were unaware of the manufacturing work. But today couple of spy images show GooPad mini is the manufacturing unit and the company has already developed prototype model.
You might have expected MediaTek MT6589 or Allwinner A31 in it. Unfortunately, it’s using MediaTek MT6577 dual core Cortex A9 processor. Dual sim card slot is there as well. Since the MTK6577 supports WCDMA 2100 in one SIM GooPad supports HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps.
Quite surprisingly the price of GooPad Mini is expected to be $99 which is close to Rs 5500 in Indian currency. Chinese companies are coming in Indian market in numbers. Before the release of this tablet the manufacturer might start selling their products in Indian market instead of working as OEM.
