They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this is a little bit too much lah!

The mysterious land of North Korea has just recenlty released their own version of the iPad, and curiously, they named it...the iPad.

According to news site NK News, the tablet is reportedly made by the Myohyang IT Company and is officially called the Ryonghung iPad.

The Ryonghung iPad reportedly boasts a quadcore 1.2 GHZ CPU, 1GB of RAM, an 8GB hard disk and - gasp! - 'network connection' capabilities! It also comes with an accessory the original iPad doesn't have: a keyboard.

Take that, Apple!

A leaflet published by the news site also revealed that the Ryonghung iPad "can perform a range of functions such as reading different sources of digital information, office work and documentation."

It also comes equipped with 40 apps, including a farming program.

We don't know how much this North Korean iPad would cost, but the heads of your entire family would be a good bet.

Check 'em specs out.
This isn't the first time that North Korea has blatantly ripped off Apple's products though.

Back in 2015, NK News reporters spotted an Apple iMac lookalike at a trade fair in Pyongyang:

Probably not an iMac.
Then, an operating system very similar to the Mac OS X also mysteriously appeared around the same time the fake iMac was spotted.

According to US tech site Gizmodo, the fake OS is called 'Red Star 3.0' and it can reportedly run Windows.

As an added bonus, the Red Star 3.0 OS comes with pre-installed military-themed wallpapers. Phwoar!

We wonder if we could install Photoshop.
Now, we wonder if Apple is brave enough to send their team of lawyers to North Korea and sue the pants off Kim Jong-un.

It's your move, Apple.
