E FUN Unveils iPad Mini Clone

iPad Mini clones are starting to escape from China via other brands.

First there was Archos. Now comes E FUN.

This will have the usual 7.85inch screen at 1024 x 768. But what kind of screen? IPS is not specifically mentioned even though their prior eight-inch tablet had an IPS screen. An unspecified 1.6GHz Cortex A9 CPU (do I dare hope for a Rockchip 3188?). Internally there will be 1GB of RAM and a miserable 8GBs of storage. But it’s also just US$129.

This could be the iPad Mini clone for people who never wanted to risk ordering one from China. That’s if the screen isn’t entirely crap.

    design looks pretty good… only 1gb ram? if there’s sd cart slot, 8gb might be just enough

      Yeah, there’s a card slot. But if you believe HP, Android stopped allowing apps to be on SD cards with a version of 4.x. I don’t know if that’s so. But if you were going to use it as mainly as a reading device, all the books could go on the card just fine. The same for videos or any audio. Let’s see what battery life and screen are like, though.

      Fraudulent.

      EDIT TO ADD: I typed that too soon. That’s not something I’ve read about because it’s a new 9.7-inch tablet (I thought it was a prior model!). I see Amlogic touts it scores 30,000 AnTuTu, but I have to wonder about the real-world experience. So far I haven’t seen anything out of China that boosts the RAM throughput to the level of a Retina iPad. Since my disgust with China’s overall cheating, I haven’t been paying attention to anything other than the few iPad Mini clones still dribbling out — and ignoring all the 9.7-inch tablets.
