With all the new "Pads" showing up, most people have given up. There all iPad copies. Late bloomers showing up at a party. It's getting a little ridicules, every one of them are full of Apple DNA, and not much to offer. In the end, they will all end up making money for Apple. If Apple wins the patent wars, most of the clone manufactures will have to pay royalties to Apple. I only hope that something good will come out of this.
