The cost on this Interpad WI-FI will likely be in the $500.00 range and released this Fall. The price point puts it into direct competition with the Apple iPad, and the Toshiba Folio 100, which are more recognizable brand names, and have a wider distribution pipeline. E-Noa plans to launch a model with 3G and GPS capabilities in early 2011.
