Chinese Manufacturer To Sue Apple Over iPad Design?

When you talk about cloned devices, most people would think of the usual fake iPhones and fake Nokia phones from China, but could you ever imagine Apple’s iPad being sued for being a clone? The Shenzhen Great Long Brother Industrial Co. has already applied for a patent of its P88 tablet back last May, entering a process that could take up to a year in China. With that in mind, Wu Xiaolong, the president of the company, isn’t too happy with Apple’s iPad announcement, especially since the company had presented their P88 six months ago at the IFA (International Electronics Fair in Berlin), and while he has admitted that it will be difficult to take on Apple in the US, but if the iPad enters the Chinese market, they will certainly sue them. Apple’s iPad is already in the firing line of Fujitsu over its name, right now it probably isn’t looking to have another company making noise about its design.
