An iPad Competitor Emerges In North Korea

North Korean State media outlet KCNA today reported on the growing popularity of its very own iPad clone, a "PAD" computer device otherwise known as "Achim" (아침), or "Morning".  The North Korean iPad clone is reportedly enjoying popularity with students, allowing users to use specially designed programs in Korean, English and Russian.  Unlike the iPad, it operates just five hours on full charge (compared to ten), presumably due to the low-price components being used in its manufacture.
