GooPad Mini? Chinese Device Manufacturer Has Already Ripped Off iPad Mini Design [Video]

GooPad Mini

The Apple iPad mini was announced just yesterday and a rip-off from the team at Goo has already surfaced.

The Chinese manufacturer of the GooPhone was quick to announce plans for the GooPad mini, an eight-inch tablet that looks very similar to the just-announced iPad mini.

The GooPad mini features a 1024 x 768 pixel display, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 2 megapixel rear camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The device is listed on several websites with 16GB on-board memory that is easily expandable via MicroSDHC card up to 32GB.

The best part of the rip-off device? It will sell for a whopping $99, far below Apple’s premium iPad mini pricing of $329.

According to GizmoChina the GooPad mini will be released in November.

Comments on several tech websites seem to show a receptive audience for the rip-off device. Consumers appear to love the devices $99 price tag and its relatively power specs based on the cost of acquisition.

The GooPhone was met with relative success when it was release with its iPhone-esque design and Google Android powered OS.

Here is a video of the GooPad, take a look and let us know if you would buy this knock-off:

While the GooPad Mini may look like the iPad Mini on the surface, it is more than likely fighting for its spot among other budget market tablets.

I can personally see the value in a budget Android tablet but I don’t know how much I trust the craftsmanship that goes into a product called “Goo.”

    How sad. Talk about bottom-feeding devices. I have to admit I'm surprised that it actually has an aluminum casing for that price.
