China’s Goophone launches US$99 Android iPad Mini clone

It might have been just hours since Apple introduced its all new iPad Mini at an event organized in San Jose yesterday. But, a couple of hours is all it needs for Chinese company Goophone to announce its most recent clone, the GooPad Mini.

This Android powered iPad Mini knock off will run Jelly Bean and will sell for a small $99 in the bylanes of Shanghai. Many people might smirk at the sheer brazenness of GooPhone in introducing a duplicated product, it’s simply a fantastic achievement if the company has managed to duplicate the iPad mini in such fast period. The GooPad Mini will launch sometime in Nov 2012 – may be just days after the iPad Mini goes on sale.

From what we know now, the GooPad Mini options an 8 inch screen with a resolution of 1024*768. The gadget would be run by a dual core processor operating at 1.4 Gigahertz. There’s 1 GB of RAM as well as 8 GB of internal storage which you can definitely expand more utilizing micro SD cards – unlike the case with that of the iPad Mini.

As you might have currently figured out by now, this isn’t the first occasion gooPhone has cloned an Apple product. The firm was currently selling its own iPad clone – the GooPad,  apart from cloned designs of the iPhone 4S clone and the latest iPhone 5.
