North Korea’s answer to the iPad is straight out of 2010

North Korea likes Apple products so much, it’s released out a homegrown version of the iPad.

But its new tablet is so similar to Steve Jobs’ creation its makers haven’t even bothered changing its name.

However, Apple chief executive Tim Cook shouldn’t have too much to worry about.

The gadget’s specs include a quad-core 1.2 GHz CPU, a measly 1GB of RAM with an 8BG hard disk – and only 40 apps.

But it does apparently have one advantage over its Californian rival.

This iPad copycat claims to be able to “diagnose up to 1,200 ailments and offer remedies.”

The Ryonghung device has been around for years but has just been rebranded the “IPad.”

It’s widely reported that only a minority of North Koreans have access to technology like this.

Officials in 2014 created an operating system which looked suspiciously similar to Apple’s Mac OS X software.

Dubbed the Red Star OS, it manages the regime’s official website as well as a state-approved search engine.

Last year, outsiders were accidentally granted access to the nation’s private internet and discovered it only had 28 websites.
