A Taiwanese electronics company is caught in a controversy after using Steve Jobs' image to promote "Action Pad", an android- based tablet. In the commercial, Taiwanese comedian and impersonator Ah-Ken, dressed in Jobs' trademark black turtle neck sweater and blue jeans and sporting angel's wings and a halo, is shown praising the Pad.
The tablet features a multi-language dictionary and runs on Google's Android OS.
"Thank God I can play another pad." the character imitating Jobs says.
The "Action Pad Taiwan" commercial posted on YouTube, though has no reference to Apple or Steve Jobs, has attracted wide criticism on the site.
"Steve Jobs always promoted things that were good for people, Apple products, so his image can also promote other things that are good," said Chelsea Chen, a spokeswoman for Action Electronics was quoted in Reuters.
