    Specs:
    15-inch Early 2008; Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM; 10.7.5
    Well yeah, of course it looks similar. All of these devices are made in either the same factories, or darned near each other. They're probably swimming with like, similar or the same hardware in each of them. I don't think Apple has a problem with this knock off per say... Due to the fact that there are many differences between the final products as well as the fact that they cater to different audiences.

    For one, the iPed has a plastic body, not aluminum. It also has a slower Intel processor, which likely is better I guess, since there's no aluminum to draw the heat away from the logic board etc..

    However, if Google can get the Android OS to perform admirably on a slower processor, then that point is moot. It also has advantages (obviously) over the iPad in that it has an USB port and can recognize mass storage devices etc.. Running Android also provides freedom to the user, which you'll never see on an iPad.

    But another 'however', is that everything sort of boils down to how useful the apps are ! These devices lifespans and popularity hinges on how well put together the apps are, as well as how they are presented or updated in the app store they reside in.

    The iPed's UI may be a bit more sluggish, but if you put these things head to head with all things being equal in terms of apps and the app stores, then the iPed would almost certainly be the better device. The only other things to take into consideration are battery life, and customer service. And that last bit is where the iPed will undoubtedly fail. Plus... does the iPed offer 3g ? For the price though, I'd almost be willing to try it out.

    I watched some videos of the iPed, honestly, I wouldn't waste my money on it. My wifes Droid operates more smoothly and is overall more snappy then that iPed is from the videos I've seen. When even scrolling apps is not responsive - let alone launching and using an app - it's a design that needs to go back to the drawing board.
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

    For me I can't afford the ipad now. But the next best option is nothing. Yes nothing is better then an ipad-rip off.

    The iPed? I was expecting a stuffed foot with an LED display on it, or something like the Ped Egg with a display. You can soften your feet (Ped) AND surf the internet (i) at the same time--WITH THE SAME DEVICE! Innovative? Darn right.
