After the unveiling of the Apple iPad in January, tons of rival products surfaced, more or less looking the same as the Cupertino gadget. One of those is the iiview Vpad, packing a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, a 10.2 inch touchscreen display with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and 3 USB ports.

The device runs Windows 7 Starter Edition, it comes with a mic, audio out, VGA out, WiFi 802.11n and $499 price tag for the most basic version. This one will include a 160GB HDD, 1GB RAM, a 1.3 megapixel camera and a rechargeable battery with 3 hours of functioning. A higher capacity battery will last 8 hours.

A higher end model costs $599 and comes with 320GB storage space, 2GB RAM, while the more evolved iiView Vpad supports 3G connectivity and more.
