Sometimes devices can be symbols of nations, like it happens with the RedPad, a Chinese slate priced at a huge $1,590, but nothing is too big for your country, right? This device runs Android and it was launched by Hongpaiyihao (means “red group number one” in case you’re wondering), a Beijing company that’s very pro government.
This is a Tegra 2 dual core device with a 9.7 inch display and it’s a product specifically created for state officials and patriotic consumers, whatever that means. A bunch of pro-China applications are preinstalled here and the buyers of the RedPad also get subscriptions to some electronic newspapers, all of them state controlled. Government strategic decisions are also available on a daily update basis. In case you want to clear things out, this tablet is three times more expensive than the iPad in China, unless you buy it in bulk, taking the price down to $1,120.
The screen resolution should be 1,024 x 768 and the device’s battery should be a 8,000 mAh unit, but in some areas of the manufacturer’s website it’s mentioned a 1280 x 800 res and 7600 mAh battery. Other feats include a 5 megapixel camera, a 2MP front camera, 3G support, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Feeling red enough for this product?
