888 Gigabyte iPad2 !!

Paper replicas of Apple’s iPad 2 have sold out in Malaysia during a ceremony to honour the dead. During the Qing Ming Festival, Chinese communities pay tribute to their ancestors by burning fake money and symbols of luxury items. These normally include such items as designer bags and plasma televisions, however  iPhones and iPads are also proving popular. One shop owner said he had shipped in 300 iPad 2 replica sets from China, which he sold for a dollar each. The paper iPads were marked as having 888 gigabyte capacity because this is an auspicious number in Chinese culture.
