    I doubt it is from pressure from Apple as much as a need to be more than an iPad Too. I am sure that any attempt to use the name WePad would bring about copyright infringement challenges, but can any competitor be taken seriously with an obvious ripoff name. It sounds like a cheap chinese knockoff. And there is no advantages to the name. iPad is a link to the traditional naming plan of Apple. A new product needs to have a distinctive name.

    Why do you say that?

    Seems to me that the specs are much better and the price is significantly cheaper (at least in Europe).

    Neofonie's WePad is just a copy cat. I would say that Apple iPad is better compared to the WePad. I would still pick the original creator and give credit for its brilliant ideas. Of course, I won't go for the second best. I would definitely choose the best!

    I guess you'll be buying a WeTab then.

    I thought we didn't have "kick a downed man" threads on Apple sites and that it was a behavior for the opposing side...

    I watched the WeePad video. All I saw was a video monitor looking like an iPad bit streaming nonsense. In other words I saw no 'real' life ineraction with the device.
