WeTab


$573.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Large 11.6" multi-touch display with 720p capable resolution of 1366 x 768px. Capable of multi-tasking. 1.3MP webcam.

The Cons:Less battery life than the iPad (6 vs 10 hours) - due in part to the larger display, full X86 processor. Heavier than the iPad - which many already consider too heavy for a pure tablet device. Not too many linux GUI applications support touchscreen, so it's kinda clumsy. Still I love it.

The WeTab is a high-level tablet PC designed to be a direct competitor for the Apple iPad. With an 11.6" Multi-Touch display at 1366 x 768 resolution, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N450 Pineview-M processor and support for Java, Adobe AIR and Flash, the WeTab tablet PC presents itself as a worthy competitor.

  • 1

    Slow, power-hungry and near obsolete Atom processor cannot match the ARM SOCs like Tegra2.

  • -2

    unknown display type - probably an inferior TN-based display next to the iPad's IPS

  • -7

    small startup device - much like with FusionGarage they do not have the size to scale and provide a competitive product
