The Goopad Mini is an imitator, but it could also be an Android competitor.
It's been mere days since the Apple iPad Mini was announced, but a crazy-cheap clone has already arrived.
China's Goophone will reportedly release the "Goopad Mini" for $99 in November. Ironically, the iPad look-alike appears to be running a customized version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Goophone isn't your typical sketchy, fly-by-night knockoff shop. In fact, it was forward thinking -- and downright ballsy -- enough to grab a patent for the rumored iPhone 5 design in China prior to the phone's release.
