Samsung Galaxy Note 2 clone shows how far white box market has gone

If you look really hard on the dozens of booths at Mobile World Congress, you will be able to see one device that looks a lot like the Samsung's Galaxy Note 2, a phone tablet that was launched only six months ago.

I briefly played with such a product today and was surprised by its quality and what, for a suggested retail price of around $300 (£200), it offers on the table.

Like its better known rival, it has a glossy white finish with a silver bezel. As expected its bezel is extremely thin and a rectangular-shaped button adorns its facia.

It comes with a quad-core system-on-chip, the Mediatek MTK6589, clocked at 1.6GHz with a PowerVR SGX graphics solution.

Other features include a massive 5.7in display with a 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution, 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, a front facing VGA camera, a 5-megapixel rear one, a stylus and Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The build quality of such products has improved tremendously over the past few years with memories of resistive displays and single-core products almost banned forever.
