Apple iPad is definitely a big hit in the market. However, if you are aware of the culture of Shanzhaiji (Bandit Phone), you will not be surprised by the “efficiency” of Chinese manufacturers. To make a thing which at least looks like iPad is not a difficult job.

The design may be not as nice as Apple iPad, but they obviously look similar. The most interesting points are they are much cheaper (expected only $300), coming with some cool features such as GPS and even micro-projector and powered by Windows Mobile or Android.
