I don't think there is such a thing as an original apad, the one that seems to be the best for the moment is called iRobot, looks like the one in the pictures above, has the rockchip RK2808 chipset and has a red power led. No certain way to tell from the information above if that machine is the iRobot and I suspect it isn't but that doesn't mean it's not the same or as good.

Many of us here have bought from listings like this where the seller claims it is the iRobot APad and shows pictures of it. But when we get our package it is a cheaper VIA based tablet. They know with the expenses involved in returning it you are unlikely to do so. They will never pay your expenses to return it. Plus if you pay customs you will have to pay again if you return for a replacement unit. You have to do a lot of research and make sure that the seller is legit and there are other happy customers. As the other poster said, there are many variants and these are all the Rockchip pads are just clones or variants of Rockchip's reference design. They are not even writing their own Andorid, just copying what Rockchip did for the reference design. The most legitimate place to buy is probably www.hiapad.com (they have links to their own store) but the prices are higher then other sellers.
