At first glance, this 7-inch Android slate resembles a giant iPod Touch--perhaps more so than the Apple iPad itself does.
The Moonse E-7001, available for $220 at Chinese online retailer Shenit.com, runs Android 1.5 and has an 800-by-480-pixel touchscreen, a 600MHz ARM-based processor, Wi-Fi, and 2GB of on-board flash.
Like the iPad, the E-7001 has an accelerometer for setting portrait or landscape orientation. Unlike the iPad, it offers an SDHC card slot for extra storage but provides no 3G broadband option.
One thing is for certain: Moonse has done a fine job of mimicking the iPod/iPhone look. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Apple must be blushing--or perhaps pondering litigation.
