APAd iRobot iPad Clone that runs Android

The APad, AKA iRobot, is an Apple iPad clone that runs the Google Android operating system. It is designed to look like an iPad (kind of, but not very good) and has a 7 inch touchscreen along with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The screen is in a 16:9 aspect ratio.

For connectivity it has wireless 802.11 a/b/g. The Android operating system uses a Chrome browser from what we have read and the device is capable of supporting PDF documents along with Word and Excel files. Email is also available on the device.

The device comes with 128MB of RAM and for storage you get the option of either 2GB or 4GB. A microSD card slot is also included allowing for up to 32GBof extra storage to be used.

The device costs $199 and is available from a website called China Grabber. Although it’s not the best of looking tablet devices and seems to have a few awkward looking features like the home button, it’s quite a bit cheaper and does run the Android OS. As for how good it actually is, I have not personally tested it so am unable to comment on performance of the device.

  1. multasking.?
    where is the reset button located?

  2. This is the biggest piece of junk…very unusable. I didn’t even take the plastic off before putting it up for sale.

  3. I may be getting an iRobot, but I would like to know what it’s like before I get one, but judging from the comments from other websites it doesn’t seem like a good device. One reason why I doubt its worth buying is that the touch screen requires a stylus, which, in my opinion, isn’t of good quality. Another reason is, because the battery is weak. They say in most reviews that the battery lasts for up to 10 hour, but in the comments the people say the battery lasts up to one hour, which is actually bad quality. Oh another thing is that the internet performance is terrible. They also say that it’s not a licensed tablet and that it’s got different brand logos I’m not sure what they’re called but there were a lot of complaints that the iRobot is a fake clone. That’s about all I have to say about the iRobot.
