Nine real iPad alternatives

These products have features missing in the iPad and they're slated to ship this year

Product: WeTab
Screen Size and Resolution: 11.6", 1366x768
Operating System: Based on Linux
Communication: 3G and Wi-Fi
Ship date: August 2010

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
