    The iPad Alternatives — The 'Where Are They Now' Edition

    The iPad is the king of tablets and might hold that title for years to come.

    [Germany] Fear not, the German iPad competitor, the WePad, really does exist. Over 100 journalists could prove it on Monday night in a small reception room at the Adina Apartment Hotel in Berlin.

    The WePad gets a price and launch date (update: Now with a demo of the interface!)

    The WePad made headlines a few weeks back when the tablet launched out of seemingly nowhere. It’s really the anti-iPad with multitasking, Flash, SD card slot, USB, along with the Android Marketplace, but while maintaining Apple’s sleek design.

    While every man and his dog is waiting for their preordered iPad to arrive, some Germans went their own way and yesterday presented a Slate that appears to have, well, better features. The Neofonie WePad has similar form and function as the wet dreams of our Crunchgear editors, but facts are that the German Android device has a bigger multitouch screen and a faster CPU than the iPad.
