Google around and you'll find remarks about it all over the forums, here included.

This is typical:

"The shanzhai debranded Flytouch II is a product based on the original Gome Flytouch 2. I appears that there are vendors labeling a RAM upgraded variant (512MB) as the Flytouch 3. This is highly misleading, because Gome is not going by this branding. The 512MB version cannot be considered as a new generation of the Flytouch line of Android tablets, and as such should still be referred to as the Flytouch II, or Flytouch II with 512MB."

"The manufacturer name for this new product is the SuperPAD II."
Indeed......things have moved on a bit now.....there is now a similar confusion over the Flytouch 4, the Flytouch 5 and the Flytouch 6, none of which (AFAIK) Gome produce. Things, it appears, will not be getting clearer any time soon!
