North Korean tech company rips off Apple's trademarks by marketing the Ryonghung iPad
North Korea has ripped off Apple before with its version of the iMac that was pre-loaded with Red Star 3.0, a complete copy of OS X. The Ryonghung iPad comes with an unknown operating system and is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU. The tablet also features 1GB of RAM and an 8GB Hard Disk. It offers a physical keyboard, an HDMI port and has over 40 pre-installed apps including one that can diagnose 1,200 ailments. Other programs can be added by inserting separate SD cards.
This would appear to be a layup for Apple's legal team if it decides to proceed with a lawsuit. So far, there has been no word out of Cupertino. The Apple iPad name is important to Apple, which goes without saying. You might recall that back in 2012, Apple paid a Chinese company called Proview $60 million for the rights to use the iPad name in China. A slip up by Apple left the iPad name in Proview's hands in the country, and the company originally sought $2 billion from Apple to buy the rights from them.
