>flash support
>multi touch
>Atom N270 processor, running at 1.6Ghz
>2GB ram
>32gb SSD
>User replaceable battery, 4 hours life
>front facing camera
>25 x 16,8 x 2.1 cm
>and can you believe it, 3 USB ports


There's plenty more infomation and pictures here

one could argue that the ipad is a smaller and lighter, but I'd give all of that up for 7 Pro, the camera and the stats actually being acceptable.

And its got a SIM/CDMA port, so you could probably find a cheaper internet supplier than what the pad forces you into

Am I correct in saying that their website says the iPad doesnt have multitouch?
Either way, this is yet another tablet that makes the iPad look silly.

They say multi-spot isnt available on the ipad, but multitouch is. I couldnt tell you the difference though. Maybe its a bad translation? Have to ask Lebellium if it is...

ipad beats the battery
And I think that this will be even more of a rip off. Tablets in general are silly.

Unfortunately the larger screen, longer battery life, and custom touchscreen UI of the iPad are going to make it hard for tablets like this one to do well. Windows 7 tries to be everything and it's only about half there for a pure touchscreen device.

It has only 4 hours of battery life though, and costs $100 more...

Maybe i's just me...but I'd still rather get a netbook.

With the same amount of money put into a so called tablet, one can buy a decent laptop or netbook. These tablets are just a waste of money...I'd rather have a full functioning laptop...But that's just me.

Yeah, tablets is like spending twice as much money than a netbook on something that only has about half of the functionality. Touch screens are cool, but by no means should they replace a mouse and keyboard as the default means of controlling a PC - just be another way to interact with the computer as a counterpart to a mouse and keyboard.

Since the battery is changeable, that means that a higher capacity battery should be available to toast the ipad's 10hrs,......................

Hahaha it's ok I guess, if only they weren't so expensive. They have their uses though. For example, when I make wallpapers, a touchscreen would be much more easier to draw with compared to having to use a tablet (the other kind of tablet with the buttons and the pen and GAAAAH) and those themselves cost like...$700 for a good one xD
