Still waiting for that iPad you ordered to arrive in April? Too bad you didn’t know that the WePad existed, a pretty decent tablet that easily rivals Apple’s product. The Neofonie WePad has a similar form factor to the iPad, but it comes with a bigger multitouch display and a better CPU. Plus, the device runs Flash, packs USB ports and expandable memory.
If this wasn’t enough, the WePad supports multitasking, packs a webcam and you have to know that this German tablet runs Android. Another advantage of this product is that it’s supposed to his the stores in Germany faster than the Apple iPad and with a lower price. Another interesting aspect of this device is the fact that it runs a Linux derivate with Android on top.
The WePad’s specs list also includes a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N450 Pineview-M CPU, 16GB NAND Flash memory, a SIM card slot, Adobe AIR support, Android Marketplace support, eBook compatibility, Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi N and optional 3G. This device measures 13mm in thickness, weighs 800 grams and its battery life is about 6 hours.
With all of these cool features listed, who wants to buy the iPad any more? We have to mention that Neofonie GmbH, Wepad’s maker has a 12 year old expertise in the field and they’re also involved in the software market, running a search engine called WeFind.
