    Dressed like an iPad, the packaging for the knock-off device is so similar to the Apple packaging that you have to look twice before realising it's not the real thing. Though the device is a little curvier around the edges than the iPad, it's clear the makers went to great lengths to make this as similar to the Apple creation as possible, right down to the dock, which includes a little iPod icon dubbed 'iPed.'

    Probably the most attractive feature of this device is the OS combined with the price. Running Google's Android OS and costing just $105, it's cheaper than the majority of Android smartphones out there, never mind the iPad.

    the fact that it uses android is the only nice thing about this.

    That iped is sure somethin'. The only problem I see with it is everyone will laugh at you and make you feel ashamed to own one. :D
