North Korea debuts its own new tablet, no internet on board

While the rest of us small people use our connected devices to do things like interact via social media, get caught up on news, play games or watch streaming media, the glorious leader in North Korea knows how to do things right.  The Samjiyon is that perfect tablet. It runs Android but does not have internet connectivity because who needs (deserves) internet in North Korea? No, no, no, no, the lucky devoted citizens that get to own this baby will already have all they could ever need in a mobile device.

The Samjiyon comes pre-loaded with everything you need to know about being an obedient servant to the dear leader, Kim John  Jong Un and understanding his greatness. It also explains why the people must starve so that the pudgy little guy does not miss a meal. Thankfully, the dear leader also wants to make sure you are entertained as a small consolation for your unwavering obedience.

Yes, the Samjiyon has games too! There is a basketball game (Dennis Rodman would be pleased), there is a game involving shooting tanks and what would a tablet be without a rip-off of Angry Birds to pass the time with?

We do not have any specs on the tablet, but from the press image we found, it looks like a 10-inch slate with unknown components underneath, possibly left-overs from South Korea. What do specs matter when you have your dear leader and his propaganda to guide you?

never underestimate the enemy , The N/K army although it lacks technology is still capable in engaging the South Korean forces even without a tactical nuclear strike , if N/K plans to attack the south , they will probably use it as a high altitude EMP to blind the enemy , the marines and the South forces will probably loose valuable GPS and electronic weaponry needed to attack the hordes of medium tanks and infantry

No reliable delivery system for EMP, Russian-sourced/Chinese-copied technology is time-and-again proven to be inferior. Kim's million man army will be fodder. At worst, DPRK lobs some artillery into Seoul, after that, they don't get past the DMZ. US and ROK army units are far more lethal. Seriously, DPRK might have enough for a day or two before they are simply crushed from exhaustion/fuel/starvation and equipment failures. The problem then is the DPRK people, they are that "in love" with their "dear leader" that I suspect there would be mass suicides in Pyonyang.

The N/K & S/K Border (DMZ) is heavily guarded by south korea and united states joint force, there's no way n.k can enter the south, the us can drop a nuke whenever they want, unfortunately china will be mad if the us does that

agree with that , but the biggest problem with the N/K forces will be the lack of strategy , their weapons are alright if used properly,but sadly their chain of command is controlled by their "dear leader" who is only qualified to taste food . but if the N/K forces goes all out , they will probably start with a salvo of artillery , missiles and rockets which might push the ROK forces back , but once the B2's take off , its going to be WW3

Even with good strategy they don't stand a chance of hitting Hawaii or alaska, let alone mainland. The us can just send a b2 (or two) and it's all over, the problem is china and Russia which are northKorea's ally

Additionally, their weapons are outdated, probably soviet era type

North Korea's arsenal consists of mainly 70's era equipment , and most of them are indegenous designs copied from outdated soviet bloc designs so they are not as powerful as anything used by modern -upto date armies , the N/K boasts too much but they will never operate beyond their own territory , China is N/K's best ally but China has more economic ties with the south so like a few months ago , they might oppose N/K's decisions as well , Russia will simply not care about N/K because their ideologies are not similar , i think they might save the nuke for a EMP if possible or as a tactical weapon if they get invaded

Their technologies are simply not capable of creating an EMP device, nor do they have money for it, nk's main weapon supply is merely from Chinese leftovers. They'll probably survive for a week or so.

It's down because of a holiday, "Great Leader Day." Thankfully, that only happens 365 times a year (366 for Leap Years).

I don't think much of anyone likes Kim Jong Un here, and I agree with your sentiment towards the situation in North Korea... but this was pretty unprofessional of you.

I think Apple will sue them. Apple will create iArmy and will crush this communist country.

"the dear leader, Kim John Un" You have insulted Our Dear Leader with this unfortunate American misspelling. Please do not move from your current position. You are to be escorted to your work camp shortly, Mr. R.
