GERMAN TABLET FIRM Wepad is no more, having changed its name to Wetab.
The company, which is part of the German telco Neofonie, said that it was changing its name to 'clearly differentiate' its products in the tablet marketplace. "As of today we have changed the product name of our tablet computer to Wetab," it wrote.
It might be a bit late to 'differentiate' the product, as the Wetab comes in options very similar to its former namesake-no-more. Although it doesn't offer a 64GB version, Wetab is planning to release both WiFi and 3G versions of its tablet, and consumers will be able to opt for a 16GB or 32GB model.
But there are some significant differences. Wetab worked with Intel on the tablet as well as Adobe. Its gadget runs Flash as standard and has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pineview-M processor.
Other shots at the Ipad include the fact that it runs the Android OS, it has two USB slots, and it has a dock - meaning that you don't have to hold it all the time.
It is also less expensive than Apple's Ipad, priced at just over £500 for the larger model.
We've asked Wetab for a bit more information about the name change. For example, how many Apple lawyers does it take to force the change of a brand name in Germany? But as yet we have not had a response.
It might perhaps be interesting to note that until recently Wetab ran a number of articles on its website comparing its tablet to the one from Apple.
We say until recently, since if it wasn't for the Google cache of the company's website no one would be any the wiser.
