Top 5 Most Weirdest Tablets in the World
Apple experienced tremendous success in 2010 with the introduction of the original iPad. The device was received so well that it created a new market niche, with other manufacturers scrambling to put out their own tablets. While many of the competitors have been solid, some have been strange. Here are the 5 weirdest tablets in the world.
Binatone ReadMe Mobile
The Binatone ReadMe Mobile looks like the tablet equivalent of Dr. Frankenstein’s monster. It has physical controls like a classic Kindle, a 7″ screen like man tablets, and is just an oddity. The specs aren’t anything to write home about either. With 4GB of storage and a version of Android that’s more than two years old, the only reason to purchase the ReadMe is that it’s cheap.
iPad 2 Knockoff
Knockoffs of Apple products are nothing new in China. Phony Apple products that surface from the country range from iPhones to entire Apple Stores. This iPad 2 knockoff, known as the Aocos N19, borrows the entire form factor of the iPad and even features a capacitive display. Unlike Apple’s popular tablet, the N19 runs Android 2.3.
Sony Tablet P
The Tablet P looks like somebody on Sony’s design team was watching their kid play a game right before going to a board meeting. The Tablet P borrows the DS form factor with two screens, although they do measure 5.5 inches. The device has 4G capabilities and Sony software, so it’s not as though it’s a total waste. We’re just wondering why someone would buy this over a regular tablet.
Asus Eee Pad Slider
Some of the other tablets on this list have been poor machines in nearly every regard. That actually isn’t the case for the Eee Pad Slider by Asus. The Slider is actually a solid device, running the Honeycomb version of Android and sporting a Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Its built-in keyboard makes it look like an extra-large version of a cell phone, though, and watching someone type on the device is amusing to say the least.
Original Samsung Galaxy Tab
Samsung’s line of Galaxy Tab models has been successful since 2011. The first model, released in 2010, was something more of a dud. It ran Android 2.2, a version that was meant for phones. Absolutely nothing distinguishes this tablet from its Samsung Galaxy S phone, except for an inability to take calls. When your tablet boils down to being nothing more than a giant phone, it’s time to go back to the drawing board.
Not everyone’s a fan of the iPad, but after seeing some of these weird tablets we’re inclined to give Apple some credit. At the very least, they know what they’re doing. Being unique isn’t bad, but some of these tablets strayed too far from the beaten path.
