Pioneer Computers has their own iPad rival rolling down the line. Gizmag reports that the company will be releasing an 11.6" Windows 7 slate in the near future. It'll have a capacitive touchscreen, 64 GB of storage space and Ion graphics. Expect an Atom N450 processor, (optional) GPS & a built-in 1.3 MP camera.

There'll be 512 MB of RAM and full 1080p support. The ePad has a 3-axis G sensor and an LED backlit display. It is just .55" thick, barely more than the iPad. There will also be 32 GB and 16 GB options, b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1. Add in USB slots, HDMI-out, and a 6 hour battery for a very solid package.

The ePad launches in September for around $622, starting. That is pricier than Apple's offering, but the sheer number of features this thing packs might be enough to counter that.
