Hurray I won a fake Ipad at the our annual company dinner prize draw!!!!
Ok, it was actually touted as an e-book on the ticket and it’s not really a “fake” in that it’s not copied the design of the original, but when I got it out of the box it’s obvious that’s what they’re getting at with it’s touch screen, the icon layout, the ability to play games, watch HD video and play music (as well as read books). The brand is Gemei by the way, not sure what model.
Unfortunately it’s pretty poor, the touch screen is very slow to respond and the applications don’t work at all well, it’s not pleasant to use at all. What’s more, it’s core function, as an e-book reader is held back by the dreadfully dull screen, I’ve got a kindle which has an amazing reflective screen which can be read in direct sunlight (actually the brighter the better), this one struggles even in low lighting. On the train this morning I played games on my iphone the entire way with no problem, H could barely see the screen on the Gemei, even at full brightness..
This one’s going straight into the outbox, it’s going to make a fabulous gift for one of H’s nephews!
