I think most of us knew when the iPad finally debuted that there would be a wealth of new tablets coming to market shortly to compete against it. Most manufactures try to come in under the price of the Apple offerings because consumers are often more likely to go with Apple over similarly price competitive products.




A company called iiView has unveiled its tablet offering called the Vpad. The tablet is from a brand that is not well known so you might expect the machine to be undercutting the iPad price significantly. The machine is more like a netbook than the iPad with an Intel Atom processor and VGA out along with USB ports.


The screen of the machine is 10.2-inches with a 1024 x 600 resolution. Model 1 of the machine has a 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, and WiFi for $499. Model 2 gets a 320GB HDD, 2GB of RAM, and WiFi for $599. Model 3 gets a 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, and 3G for $599. Model 4 gets 320GB HDD, 2GB of RAM, WiFi, and 3G for $699. All models run Windows.
