WePad made by the company Neofonie in Berlin, Germany just announced via a press release that it’s just been renamed WePad to WeTab. According to the company, that’s been done in order to “clearly differentiate our products within the international market for tablet computers.” Actually we think they want to avoide any clash with Apple.

WePad is now WeTab
Berlin (Germany) – May 7, 2010 – To clearly differentiate our products within the international market for tablet computers, as of today we have changed the product name of our tablet computer from WePad to WeTab. Similarly, the company formerly known as WePad GmbH will now trade under WeTab GmbH. This change only concerns the name of the product and com-pany. All other particulars and pre-orders are not affected.
More Details About WeTab:
WeTab Runs on Open Source Google Android. It features the largest display in the burgeoning slate industry with a 11.6″ display with 1366×768, resoulution. It has a rather quick 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, a 1.3 MP webcam (for instant messaging and Video Conferences), two USB sockets, a flash card reader, integrated WWAN modem, and GMA3150 graphics. With the two USB sockets we imagine that the WeTAB will allow external devices such as USB keyboards, USB drives and more. Finally it has multi-tasking support, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, optional GPS, an ambient light & motion sensor and an internal fan.
Coincidentally, it seems that the tablet has also recently gone up for pre-order on Amazon.de, with it demanding the expected €449 for the 16GB WiFi version, and €569 for the 32GB 3G model — still no promised ship date, unfortunately.
