Throughout this year we have seen the birth of many new devices. All of them are impressive, some more than others. The iPad was most likely one of the most sought after gadgets in the first half of the year, but now, there is a new contender. The WeTab. As tablet PC’s go, the WeTab is not only a marvel in technology, but also in design. The WeTab is not an ugly and cumbersome device, but it is sleek and stylish. This is probably because it resembles the iPad, though that is not a bad thing as the iPad is a fantastic piece of designing. The technology within the WeTab is truly impressive, it has a large 11.6” screen at a resolution of 1366 x 786 pixels. What will surprise most people with this device is the processor it uses. Unlike the iPad and the Galaxy Tab the WeTab uses a 1.6GHz Atom processor. This means that the WeTab is capable of doing many more things that the iPad and other rivals are not capable of doing. The WeTab has a 1 GB of RAM as it wants the multitasking to go smoothly. This WeTab is full of connectivity, with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi b/g/n and 3G if you want it (although it will cost you more). To surprise us, the makers even threw is an SD slot so you can expand the memory of this device, although with up to 32GB of internal storage, I do not know if you would need to, yet this is not the major surprise, it is the TWO USB slots that this device has that really put this device ahead of the competition.
To compete in the multimedia market, the WeTab also gives Java, Flash and even Adobe Air support. It supports most music file types as well as most video formats. Wanting apps on this isn’t a big problem either as this device runs on MeeGo, which means that it is able to run native Linux programs such as Open Office, but it will also have access to the Android store which is constantly growing. With all of the WeTab’s capabilities, and the Atom processor that it hides in its sleek shell, it would have a laptops battery life, yet the WeTab offers up to 6 hours of battery life.
There is bad news though, which, you have probably guessed is the price that it is going to sell at.
