WePad Linux-based slate: Release Date and Price

Neofonie held a conference yesterday to reveal some more details about the WePad. This 11.6-inch Linux-based slate will need to be something special if it is to compete with the likes of the Apple iPad. We know that there will be more tablet devices on the market in 2010, but it is the iPad that will be the benchmark to all other tablet PCs.

Engadget German reports that the new WePad will come in two versions — both will run on the Atom N450 processor. The 16GB version will cost €450, while the 64GB version will cost €569 — this model is also HD capable. We know that both devices will not have NVIDIA inside, so we wonder what is powering the HD version model?

Those who attended the event were not allowed to get their hands on the WePad, but they were allowed to watch a number of video demonstrations. The slate uses a nice looking live widget-based GUI, and you will be pleased to know that it offers Flash Player support.

We have been told that the WePad will be ready for release in August, which we will then be able to learn much more about the device. Not certain if Apple will worry about its new competition.
