Apple iPad fans Maybe in the Wrong line for the Ultimate Tablet PC—WePad

Already sweating while in line for the iPad release today? Too bad you missed this one. From a German manufacturer Neofonie, WePad truly trumps iPad in more ways than one. Packed with features that made you doubt iPad’s vivacity, Neofonie’s Wepad would have turned heads if this one got a fair share of publicity buzz that iPad received.

Some would think that the 120g added weight (170 g for the 3G version) to this device is definitely a letdown, but with the added features not found in iPad, WePad should make up for it. Armed with a bigger 11.6” display, it also offers a much power-packed processor using Intel’s 1.66 GHz Atom 450 Pineview-M. It also offers versatile connectivity by adding USB support, a card reader, and a SIM slot to name a few. Social Media advocates will be thrilled with the built-in camera, a feature not included in iPad but sells as an additional adapter. It also supports Flash formats, a feature that Apple clearly considers as not suitable for their iPad.

Although Intel Atom can be a disappointment when it comes to handling video intensive apps, WePad boasts of having multi-tasking features. This is something that many critics have pounded iPad for. Running on an Android OS on a Linux environment, this serious contender grants its users more flexibility with Android apps and Adobe Air programs from Neofonie. This also means applications can be loaded after being purchased. WePad has its own WePad AppStore and can access Google Android Marketplace.

It also supports all open formats for eBook reading and also WePad’s own WeBook format. Something that seems to be a strong suit for the European publishing industry that refuses to be strangled by Apple’s App Store control.

The battery seems to be WePad’s caveat promising only 6 hours of running time.

Unfortunately there is still no official news about the price of WePad. Hopefully though, it will be on the market for a more competitive, if not a much lower, price. But hey, you are willing to shell out as much as $730 for iPad’s seriously lacking tablet PC. One thing for sure though, it’s not even a PC without having multi-tasking options. In that alone, WePad takes the crown. But, it is an Apple, you say. This one is a Neofonie WePad, a name that just might topple down iPad.

On a side note, ever wonder why Europeans prefer to start with WE than I?
