We first saw the Neofonie Wepad at this year’s CES (see the following video shot by the guys at Neofonie), the final spec was finally announced this week, let’s see how it matches up with the iPad.

Screen size: 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display [WePad][WINS] vs 9.7-inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display [iPad]

Processor: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor [WePad][WINS] vs 1GHz Apple A4 custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip [iPad]

Battery life: 6 hours [WePad] vs 10 hours [iPad][WINS]

Webcam: YES, 1.3 megapixel camera [WePad][WINS] vs NOT YET HERE [iPad]

Flash Adobe Air: YES [WePad][WINS] vs NO [iPad]

Expansion: 2 USB ports and flash card reader [WePad][WINS] vs NONE [iPad]

Radio: UMTS modem [WePad][WINS] vs Wi-Fi + 3G (depends on model)[iPad]

Apart from the above, the WePad also features the Google Android OS (meaning access to Android Market) and open eBook standards.  Sounds neat right? The WePad is expected to be available in April (in Germany).
