Meizu wants no trouble in shadowing Apple tablet
Meizu chief Jack Wong as quietly put down speculation that his company might produce a clone of Apple's iPad. Although the M8 was created as a direct response to the iPhone, Wong said he doesn't have the "slightest interest" in making a tablet version. He told fans that he would rather not "lose face" by creating such a design.
The M8 is technically based on Windows CE and could scale to larger sizes, though it would likely require much more software development. In order to achieve a more iPhone-like look and feel, Meizu had to heavily customize nearly all of the user interface and would have to do so again for a tablet. The company is also relatively small and, beyond the M8, is best known for iPod-like media players. [via DAPReview]
