In the wake of the death of the HP Slate and Microsoft Courier, anti-iPad tablet offerings in the immediate future are starting to look a little...thin. Chinese manufacturer Aigo hasn't thrown in the towel yet, though, and their AigoPad tablet PC looks better than ever (Chinitech).

The AigoPad will be available in 4, 5, and 7” versions. The 7” version should weigh less than 500g-less than the iPad. This tablet packs a Tegra 2 chip and a 1GHz dual-core processor. There's also a webcam, WiFi, and 3G. The tablet runs on Android OS, and the price is said to be adapted to the Chinese market-which means “super cheap”.
If a 7” AigoPad with these specs hits for $300-$400, Apple could have a real fight on their hands. In the end, it'll come down to battery life. If the AigoPad can come close (or beat) the iPad, AND brag a lighter weight and more horsepower under the hood, I have a good feeling for the product's future.
