iPad Clone Reaches Philippines Way Ahead of the Original: Spotted in Sulit.com.ph!

Look what I found in Sulit:

Yes, an iPad clone and it looks nothing like the one I previously featured on TP -- The iPed, if you remember. This one dons a widescreen, a webcam and what-looks-like a metallic back cover (although I think it's really just painted plastic).

A certain Gia Mendoza is currently selling it on the site for Php 14,700 a piece, which is less than half the price of the original iPad. For that amount you get these specs:

  1. Wow, this is really superb review. I had read this and feels so good. iPad is really superb product by Apple as we all know that many people are using it. It's good to know about it's clone. But I think original is original and duplicate is duplicate.
    4gb compact flash

  2. This is cool. haha! I hope I can get one. iPad. :P

  3. read the horror stories of those Ipeds. not advisable. I was thinking of buying one but when I read the feedbacks of some consumers, naku badtrip. There is a very big chance na masira battery. The worst pa nito, Iped does not have warranty centers. Mahirap yan
