I realise comparisons to another "Pads" are unfair, especially given the Tablet Wars I just invented by saying Tablet Wars haven't even officially started, but surely the WePad's name is some kind of backhanded compliment/joke from its creators at Neofonie?
I hope it is, because WePad makes it sound as if Neofonie took a "find and replace" filter to a certain other soon-to-be-released tablet and called it a day. Unfortunate, as this tablet could potentially carve itself a niche identity as a capable, large-screened Android device.
Now, it's just a render we see here, but the render runs Android with access to the Android Market. Beyond that there's the aforementioned near-laptop-sized display (1366 x 768, FYI), 1.66Ghz Atom N450 processor and a GMA 3150 graphics card. Also, webcam! Which is not present in a certain looming, ballyhooed and currently available for preorder pads from places like Cupertino.
There's also a shopping list of other hardware features that this pad isn't going without at launch. Features like USB ports, UMTS modem, widgets up the wazoo (see pic) and a slightly less-than-impressive six-hour battery life. [WePad via Engadget]
