The race to make profit from the Android Tablet phenomenon is already off to a great start with multiple manufacturers creating a slew of Honeycomb powered devices. It seems that this has kicked off a new "knock-off" mini-race as well. A new company called "Pioneer Computer", based out of Australia is coming out with a Honeycomb powered knock-off of the Motorola Xoom. (They are not the Pioneer, famous world-wide electronics manufacturer of stereos and plasma TVs.) Their new tablet is called the DreamBook ePad H10 HD, and it's specs are virtually the same as the Xoom. Here's what Phandroid's article had to say about it.
It may be a bit cheaper than the Xoom, but it's still pretty pricey nonetheless. I suppose one cool thing about this, is that if several knock-offs flood the market in the future, it will drive prices down on the rest of them. What do you guys think of this? Capable competitor or destined to fail?On paper the ePad H10 HD stacks right up against the likes of the Motorola XOOM: Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 10.1-inch 1280×800 capacitive touchscreen, and dual cameras. Throw in up to 64GB of storage and a 3G radio and this Pioneer tablet sounds like nothing to scoff at. The price tag also takes its cue from the expensive Honeycomb tablets of late coming in at a wallet draining $700.
