iPad Mini Clone but with High Quality Harman Kardon Speakers

The JDtab J01, although a lot of companies are involved on the making of this tablet, JD seems to own the name of this tablet. Basically it is a iPad Mini Clone, probably similar to the Xiaomi Mipad 2 but with better speakers. It is also the first time that Meizu introduced their Flyme OS on a Tablet. Flyme is a customized OS but bares close resemblance to the look of iOS. Considering how much is copied to the iPad Mini, you will also expect the system to look the same to. Anyway, the Mediatek Chipset is also not much in terms of Horsepower, the GPU is especially not that great on gaming. Probably the biggest selling point of this tablet is the awesome Speakers, although it will be more of a Multimedia Tablet rather than for heavy users. And lastly, my biggest grip is probably the price, it is definitely not cheap.
