Best Chinese Knockoff Ever? Sony VAIC TT

There's something ingenius about taking an 'O' and making it a 'C.'  It's so subtle. So clever. It boggles the mind with possibilities: Orec cookies anyone? Maybe a little Cvaltine to wash it down?  Ok, maybe not. But that's generally the idea behind this Viac Vaic, a shanzhai version of the tiny Sony Viao.

This particular model is a knockoff of the Viao TT model. I pity the fool who goes shopping for a genuine Sony in China and ends up taking home this wannabee. For those of you who want to see what kind of guts this not-so-bad boy has, here are the specs (courtesy of clonedinchina):

  •  12.1-inch 1366×768 display
  • 1.6GHZ Intel Atom N270 processor
  • 1GB of RAM, 160GB of ROM
  • 1.3 megapixel webcam
  • WI-FI
  • Bluetooth (optional)
  • 3G module (optional)
  • 6-cell 4400mAh LI-Ion battery

Get your spelling right

Just look at the picture.
It's a VAIC (not VIAC)
Still a clever name change (they tricked you), but they did more than just change the O to a C.
