The $150 iPad Clones: What Do You Get For Your Money?

People often contact me when they notice that you can get an iPad clone from anywhere to $50 to around $250. They often want to know what is the difference between the $50 clone and the $250 clone. (I’ll discuss this more below.)  I find that most people settle on between $100 – $150 as the price range where they want to be. And most intuitively know that, most of the time, there’s a reason that the $150 model costs a little more. This article will look at a few popular models in the $100 – $150 range and will tell you why I think you actually get quite a lot for your money.

First of all, the difference between the $50 iPad clones and those that cost a little more are usually the materials used, the tablet’s capabilties, the operating system, and the chip. The cheaper models aren’t are not as responsive, don’t support flash, use old operating systems, and don’t support very much memory, which really slows them down. Now, that’s not to say that these cheap clones won’t work for very basic users or kids. There is definitely a niche for these cheaper clones. But, there are limited in some ways.  The good news is there are many models that aren’t.

Many people who are interested in a tablet want to be able to do most of what they could do with a notebook computer on it. And for these consumers, there are a couple of very nice models in the $100 -$150 range. There are a few iPeds which have rock chip processors and late versions of Android that are quite fast, solid and responsive. Many run flash and play YouTube and video quite well. In short, most of what you could do on a lap top, you could do on these knock off tablets, although some prefer to hook up a keyboard if they are going to do extensive word processing. These tablets also have cameras and allow for e reading like the kindle or the nook.

For the most part, the iPeds are 7 inches. For people are want this type of performance in a larger model, there’s a larger option. There is a 10.2 inch aPad, which is quite similar and in the same price range. The performance is also very similar. Additionally, many of these aPads allows you the option of using windows also. This is a nice alternative to HP’s new windows based tablet which is coming out at around $800 rather than the $100 – $150 price range of the clone. Of course, the clones are knock offs and they aren’t exactly the same as the iPad or the HP model, but they do offer many of the same features for less.

If you want to see how good the iPed really is, you can read a review, and see video, close up photos, full specifications, and real time pricing at the iPed Review Website located at
