First called the WePad before renamed to something we presume sounds less infringing than you-know-who's tablet, the WeTab looks to be like a scaled back version of the Gemini, with fewer features. But it still has the major things that the iPad lacks (camera, Flash support, GPS).
For now, it's unclear as to whether the WeTab's OS is Android. (Its product details Web page says cryptically the WeTab supports Android apps.) Even more perplexing, when German company Neofonie showed off the WeTab at a press conference, the prototype was running some version of Windows -- which was revealed when its user interface crashed.
