    The mouse is stupid IMO. Once you connect a mouse, you might as well just be using a desktop or laptop. Using it with a tablet defeats the purpose of holding it, using the touch screen and using it on the go. Aside from that, this thing is $100-$250 more than the iPad and its built in Germany by a company no one has ever heard of? Fail. The main page of it (or desktop) also looks like a giant clusterf**k with all those widgets everywhere. Plus, lets not forget Android tablets cant access the market which will make it pretty useless as an Android device.

    it will have access to android market afaik

    i thought the sliding homepage arrangement was very clever and seemed intuitive to use - obviously you could arrange the widgets in a way that would seem the most logical to you

    sure it won't sell nearly as much as the ipad because it's by a nevahood company and it's more expensive (well, than the cheapest ipad), but calling "fail" on that is just stupid - i'm pretty sure it'll be much better than the ipad, and quality is what i'm interested in, not sales
    it's like criticising rolls royce for not selling as many phantoms as vw does golfs

    i do agree about the mouse tho', that's totally pointless

    Ummm, no it won't. Only the "with Google" devices have access to the market which pretty much limits it to phones. There might be a hack come available for it but just like the Archos 5 and others, there is no Google integration at all and no market.

    We will see. You realize it may not even be released in the US?

    The US launch info wasn’t mentioned just yet so we still don’t know when or if this thing will hit the states. Hopefully it will, though. The iPad has made tablets relevant again and the WePad seems like it could easily be the iPad alternative to beat — or the Notion Ink Adam if it ever makes it to retail

    i don't really care if it (or anything else) gets released in the states or not, seeing as i don't live there...

    apart from the wepad and the adam, there's also at least the hp slate and the icd gemini that look quite promising
