The Neofonie WeTab gained grabbed a lot of headlines when the company first introduced it a few months ago. And why not? The tablet is kind of everything the Apple iPad is not. It has a nice big 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel HD capacitive toushcreen display. It supports HDMI output, has 2 USB ports, and a 1.3MP camera. It also packs 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.

The tablet also has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, which means it can run a variety of operating systems including Windows, Linux, or even OS X if you care to hack your way into creating a hackintosh tablet. But while early reports suggested that the tablet would run a custom version of Linux or even Google Android, it looks like the tablet will actually ship with MeeGo Linux and a custom widget-based user interface running on top.

Johannes from grabbed some one-on-one time with the latest version of the WeTab, and he shot a little video, which you can check out below. You can also find more photos at

    1. LOL. Brad has a tendency toward typos (I do too). However, Brad also provides the best-in-class tech coverage. I’m more than happy to blow off a typo here and there than deal with the nonsense “content” on most sites(thorough spell-checking is about all they do offer).

      Oh yeah, cool video. I hadn’t seen they yet, so thanks.

      1. Aww, shucks. And believe it or not, I appreciate it when people point these out — as it makes it easier for me to find and correct typos and make the site prettier for everyone.
