Ex-Google Engineers Has Created A New Android Tablet, Copied From Microsoft Surface In Every Other Way

Ultra Tablet

If you ever want to how some companies in technology industry shamelessly copy work from others, here is a great example. A new startup called Jide Technology founded by three ex-Google engineers who were working on Google Search, Google AdWords and Google Maps has developed a new Android tablet named ‘Ultra Tablet’. ‘We can’t stand the drawbacks of the tablets and laptops on the market today and we wanted to do something about it’, said the team behind this startup.

So, what did they come up with? An absolute rip-off of Microsoft Surface. The images of a tablet you are seeing in this post are not Microsoft Surface. It is ‘Ultra Tablet’ from Jide Technology.

An aluminum alloy kickstand in the back supports 40º & 80º angles – Yes, they have copied. Surface kickstand. Even the memory card slot behind Surface kickstand is available in this tablet.

I hope Microsoft’s legal department takes a look into this new startup.
