PC World: iPad Has Competitors

The iPad begins shipping next month, but alternatives from a clutch of competitors shouldn’t be far behind. PCWorld previews some of the options.

“Apple’s iPad will be available on April 3 and reports suggest that the product is off to a good start, with hundreds and thousands being ordered from Apple’s Web site. But the device has faced some criticism for lacking features such as a video camera, USB ports and support for technology called Flash that enables Web video.

But those technologies could be available in iPad alternatives reaching the market soon, including Neofonie’s WePad, Hewlett-Packard’s Slate, Notion Ink’s Adam and Innovative Converged Devices’ Ultra. These handheld devices have diagonal screen sizes from 7 inches to 11.6 inches and will be based on Google’s Android Linux OS or Windows 7″
