Some say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But a closer look at this tablet may point a patent violations instead. Made by a company in China, this Android Tablet looks a lot like an iPad. So much so, one has to wonder if it wasn’t back engineered directly from the real McCoy!

The tablet, known as the CM9701 tablet from Shenzhen Careeror Technology, has all similar design functions to the iPad including the black bar which obscures 3G antennas. The case itself is only really missing the Apple logo. But when you boot it up, Android pops up ready to roll. There’s also an Sd card slot which is in the same location as the 3G antennas, which means that the black bar can open to reveal it.

Other than that, according to the FCC tests, the device is listed as a 2.4 Ghz tablet. That leads us to believe it’s a dual-core 1.2 Ghz processor. It also has standard WiFi covering the 802.11(g) and (b) bands as well as frequencies in the 2400 range. Other features include headphone interface, microphone, and a front facing webcam. And although it has cleared the FCC, it’ll be interested to see if it actually will make it into the US market.
