Chinese device manufacturers seem to have much success in cloning skill. Soon after we saw an iPhone5’s clone, the Android-powered iPhone, what it looks like Chinese device maker FView has prepared to launch a Microsoft’s Surface tablet clone.
Although official devices’ clones sound like a really bad rip-off, but folks in China are doing it in a pretty shameless manner.
That said; while official 10.6-incher Microsoft Surface tablet runs on Windows RT or Windows 8 software, this latest knockoffs, so called Windows Pad [image above], runs both Windows 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
This Windows Pad is a 13.3-incher Hybrid tablet with a 1280 x 800 pixels resolution equipped IPS display. Powered by an unspecified dual core processor, cocked at 1.6 GHz, this tablet also features WiFi and Bluetooth Connectivity.
The Windows Pad was promoted at the IFA trade show in Berlin along with another 9.7” Media Tablet (image below), suggests report.
Needless to say, you should stay away from these cheap knock-offs, no matter how affordable they seem. As our fellow at Redmond Pie tell us why. The official Surface slate is due to release on Oct 26. So the wait, at all, is virtue.
