    I think the question on everyone's mind is, "If you're going to clone a car, why would you clone a Chevrolet?"

    So, it's a clone with more software features but lacking the killer app (the interface) and inferior hardware (no multitouch). A clone with which you'll smudge the screen if you don't use a stylus, and which you'll have to apply pressure to, not using your fingertips.

    Kind of defeats the whole purpose of having an all-touch interface when it's pressure-based and smudgeable (meaning you have to use a stylus), doesn't it?

    The pirating and counterfeiting ability in China seems to be more staggering each time I read about it. Not that I'm an expert or anything, but the author's thinking that China is right on the cusp of going legit and kicking out unique, top-of-the-line products seems a bit premature, IMO. There is a big difference between doing all the R&D to make a new, successful product and just ripping off that product. I mean, a local cover band might do a killer Stairway to Heaven, but that doesn't mean they can be the next Led Zeppelin.

    Are you sure it's a Chevy? Might just be the Chinese knockoff ;)
