Android tablets are released almost on a daily basis in China, so keep ahead of the crowd in the competitive Shenzhen electronics market means moving fast and keep ahead of the rest!
Well the latest tablet listed by the (Google Translated) ‘Viagra Blue Star’! electronics company in Shenzhen has managed to pip the rest of the imitation tablet market at cloning and knocking off the HTC Flyer tablet!
In fact this HTC Flyer clone, marketed in China as the PAD721, isn’t a true 1:1 replica of the HTC model, as the Shenzhen based company have decided to make their unofficial version slightly thinner than the original at only 13mm.
Other than the thickness the external appearance and even the hardware and software features are pretty much how HTC made them, only in a much cheaper Chinese knock-off version.
The touch-screen measures in at 7-inches and features 5 point multi-touch, and resolution of 800 x 480.
Android 2.2 with FLASH 10.1 support runs very smoothly on an 800 MHz Qualcomm CPU with 256mb RAM (there is also a 512mb version available too).
3G, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are all there too as are both a front (0.3 mega-pixel) and rear (1.2 mega-pixel) cameras.
The PAD721 even as the same 2 tone design as the genuine HTC Flyer with a choice of black, silver white and 3 other colors to choose from.
