For those who do 'love' Apple, they say the best form of flattery is
imitation.  I have to say, the look of the iPad is sleek and nice.
Therefore, if you want a similar iLike device which can run Android, just
order it direct from China.  I have been following many of the copy-cat
Android devices from China, and this is one of the best I have seen. Most
are wi-fi only, but that meets my needs. The prices are significantly less
than the usual retail channels because most are using resistive touch
screen technology rather than capacitive (i.e. fingernail or stylus -vs-
fingertip control). The better resistive screens are still very responsive,
and can work using your fingertips.  Check out these reviews:

This one is the same size as the iPad, and should fit iPad cases and
possibly some peripherals:

Most of the above can be ordered from  and
similar outlets from China.

Keep in mind that there are CHEAP clones of clones too.  When the device
hits the less than $185 US price range, they are usually equipped with very
slow processors (600 Mhz or less), and the user experience really suffers.
I have bought the cheap ones just to see, and my personal experience says
don't bother.  I will be getting one of the above soon <birthday
approaching>.  ;-)
