Myohyang IT Company, a North Korean tech company, released its own version of a tablet computer - the 'Ryonghung iPad.'

Unlike the Apple product that Ryonghung iPad is named after, the two gadgets have little in common.

According to an advertising campaign, this tablet is "popular among customers" despite only having 40 apps to choose from and 8GB of storage.
