[citation][nom]army_ant7[/nom]The tablets in the bottom pics really look like iPads upfront... Just saying IMHO (not a fanboy)...[/citation]

Really there isn't much variation between tablets as far as looks, but picking the same screen/bezel size along with general shape and the same resolution might be pushing it.

Course they are still around half the price so there's always that

Another Android tablet maker worth a look at in 2013 is Ainol Electronics - which recently introduced a number of impressive, well-priced Android tablets and is also noted for winning Runner-Up status for "Best Tablet of the Year" at CES/CNET 2012 --

One of the first U.S. resellers to carry Ainol - Novo brand tablets is a site called TabletSprint -- and this week the Novo 7 VENUS launched -- a 7 inch tablet with a QUAD CORE processor for only $149 that takes on the Google Nexus 7 and other competitors for a lot less and offers a lot more -- with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, a high resolution 1280x800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a 4000 mAH battery, both front and rear cameras, a MicroSD memory card slot for unlimited storage, Google Play with access to 400K+ Apps, a MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, HDMI - to view personal videos and to download movies and watch in full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV, WiFi, Ethernet, and an option for 3G/4G connection. It's also a great gaming device with its high resolution screen and motion gaming sensor. The site TabletSprint also offers a 7" Compact Case with built-in Keyboard ($22) which easily transforms a tablet into a mini-laptop--

TabletSprint offers a few other brand new models with most launching in January, including the Novo 10 Hero - a full-size 10 inch tablet packed with impressive features for only $219--

TabletSprint also includes $25 in quality Bonus Apps with all tablets available through their site.... both these new models and a few others are certainly worth checking out and comparing to other major brands.

So just because something has a white bezel they are automatically copying apple?

News to me, I never would have thunk that Apple would be able to patent colors. O wait thats right, they cant and anyone claiming "copy" or "similarities" is a part of the mass media/subliminal product placement in TV/Movies if all they can say is "Dooode they look so similar man apple gonna get rich suing these guys!"

Turn them off and they look almost identical to the iPads. That's not contributing to some media conspiracy, that's jsut stating a fact. They do look very similar because they are physically very similar with the same size, ratio, and color. Yes, that does not make them iPads, but it does blur the lines. Also, I speak as someone who has never and has no intention of buying any Apple product. Unlike the Samsung versus Apple *wars*, there might be something to this. Still, these tablets seem to be far better than iPads once you get into the details and they have that going for them a long way.

Account was made just a short while before posting and only did the one post, it's possible.

[citation][nom]halcyon[/nom]^ Yeah but to offer 1280x800 on any new device.... Well, I guess there has to be a low low end.[/citation]

Exactly that. The market for low end devices is often larger than the market for high-end devices, so someone has to give it some attention or else a lot of profit is being ignored.
