It looks as though Apple’s iPad might have finally met it’s match in the WePad, who after several unsuccessful public demonstrations have finally come up with the goods, and previewed a hands-on video for us to gawp over.
Unfortunately for us English speaking users, the video is only in German, so if you have a translator handy, or can even understand German, check out the video at the end of this post. If you are unable to understand the video, it is still worth a watch as you finally get to see the WePad in all it’s glory.
The WePad does look very impressive, and shows that the Atom N450 slate has a slick and intuitive workspace, which allows the user to open several applications at once without loosing visibility of the other application.
The 11.6-inch touchscreen which was demonstrated by Neofonie shows what exactly the WePad can do, and with a UI looking as impressive as it does, the iPad could be up for some serious competition. Especially in Germany where it is expected to drop in July for â‚¬449.
A â‚¬569 version is also expected to be released with twice the storage as the first (an upgrade from 16GB to 32GB) and integrated 3G. A release for the rest of Europe has still not been confirmed.
What are you impressions of the WePad?
