iPad 2 Meets the White KIRF knock off

ipad white kirf knock off

China is becoming a huge market place for manufacturing and trade of counterfeit electronic products. Nowadays you can usually find the duplicate iDevices of Apple which are, no doubt, poor products. Once in a blue moon, a fine one springs up that instills the interest of many in the tech world. Latest on the charts is the copycat of second generation iPad, which is packed into pure white plastic body, which is certainly not the Apple’s taste. The plastic body does not make the catch but there is something more that the iDevice users really look for, that is, a microSD card slot. It is a cheap way to boost the memory of the product without paying much as in the case of iPad 2 where Apple charges around $100 for each memory upgradation. But that does not affect the sales of the real deal.

Talking about the specifications, Shenzhen Huaqiangbei’s white shell KIRF runs on Android 2.2, contains 800MHz VIA 8650 processor and includes storage capacity of 4GB. Its touch screen measures 9.7 inch and overall dimension are 205x157x9.9 mm. along with microSD card slot, it has 1.3 megapixel rear camera and a 2800mAh battery for long backups. This hefty line of specs does not add up to the weight of the device making it lighter than the actual iPad 2. Also it comes with a price tag worth $93 which makes it worth checking- not for interest but at least out of curiosity.

Though it is a pretty good deal, we recommend the genuine counterpart instead of the knock off as you never know in the long run, when the heart will beat of the knock off stalls. Also with the real deal one get the reliable product and good support from the company which cannot be paralleled by the low price knock off.

iPad 2 might use Samsung’s Super PLS display technology

Rumors were flying around saying that iPad 2 may reach consumer market as soon as this quarter. Just recently, an industry source has confirmed that the Super PLS technology of Samsung will be utilized by the 2nd generation of iPad. iPhone 4 and iPad are already using the IPS technology which is doing wonders everywhere by providing outstanding viewing angles. The question is why PLS technology of Samsung is being considered better than IPS technology!

  • A super PLS display will cost you 15% less than the IPS display.
  • The Super PLS display guarantees to provide you 10% brighter image than the IPS technology.

No wonder, Samsung proprietary Super PLS display panels are believed to further enhance greater visual experience for both smartphones and tablet PCs which is amazingly great. If you really love that get-ahead technology, iPad 2 is definitely going to be the perfect bet.
