WePad: Will be called WeTab at release

By Posted 7 May 2010, 18:47

With the Apple’s iPad selling well since launch and the announcement of more countries getting the device, the makers of the rival tablet computer WePad have decided in a name change.

The forthcoming device will now be called WeTab; the company statement said the name change was done to “clearly differentiate our products within the international market for tablet computers.” The company name has also changed from WePad Gmbh to WeTab Gmbh.

Amazon.de. have recently put the device up for pre-order with the 16GB Wi-Fi version selling for €449, and the 32GB 3G retailing for €569. Pre-orders will not be affected by the name change, but no shipping date has been announced yet. For more on this please visit engaget.

    The Neofonie WePad has been renamed to WeTab to ‘differentiate’ itself from the competition, where they are chiefly referring to the Apple iPad. There are no other changes to the MID’s hardware though.
