Is the Shimano Action Cam a Rebraded Ion Game?

This Ion Game looks similar to the newly announced Shimano Action Cam --- any thoughts? I have not examined the specs closely, the lens is different, but the form factor seems about the same.

They share the same general shape, but are sufficiently different that calling one a rebrand doesn't have any meaning, and even a cursory look at the specs reveals them to be different devices.

that the Shimano cam can connect via ANT+'with their Di2 transmitter to integrate gear position, along with other Ant+ transmitters like power meters, is really cool, and opens up a new level of ride analysis and simulation.
