The WeTab is hailed as the best iPad competitor in Germany. In early September the German startup Neofoni announced plans to launch the WeTab with MeeGo. Now they can call the WeTab the World's first MeeGo Tablet. The launch of the WeTab looks to be rather bumpy though. The WeTab ships basically unfinished. According to Heise, the company had to decide to postpone the launch yet again or ship without a couple features. The missing features are Multi-touch and Flash hardware acceleration. The missing hardware acceleration causes Youtube videos in HD to stutter. The Android virtual machine is also not available yet.

The WeTab is supposed to get an update next week that fixes some of the issues. Another issue is the empty app store and that there are no books or magazines offered. It will be hard for the WeTab to compete with the Apple iPad. In my experience most consumers are no longer willing to experiment and wait for a company to fix their product. It just has to work.

The WeTab runs on a 1.66Ghz Intel Atom N450 CPU, 11.6-inch screen, 1GB RAM, 16 or 32GB storage, 1.3MP camera, up to 6 hours battery. The WeTab operating system is based on the free Linux distribution MeeGo and integrates runtime environments for various other technologies. As such, in addition to native Linux apps, many other applications can run on the WeTab, including Android apps, Adobe Air applications and MeeGo apps. The WeTab is currently launching only in Germany.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
