This came out in 2007 way before apple and thought of an iPad maybe before the iPhone so I think they have every right.

The idea of the product may have existed back in 2007 but probably not the name iTablet

AMtek had a product in 2007 named T200 in the product line called iTablet

I agree. Tablet based PCs have been around since 2005 or earlier. The Origami Project has been available for XP and Vista, and now 7, has does everything and more, that the iPad does. I hope the Windows PC tablet war buries the iFad. HP, Dell, JooJoo, Asus, Toshiba, HTC. Apple is in a world of hurt and competition. Archos 9 is 550, NetbookNavigator are both newcomers to Windows and theirs are already available.

ya know from a hardware standpoint, it looks cool. very stoked on the hdmi/camera/hard drive/usb adds that the ipad doesn't have. what doesn't stoke me out is windows. too bad. would make one hell of an android or webOS tablet

windows 7 might be fun, but an android tablet with all that, and connecting to the existing android market would be a direct slap in the face to that crappy ipad. oh yea, and dual cameras (one front facing) for visual calling!

Nice, looks like the ipad might be dripping blood after seeing these specs. Still though, not sure if i could cary around something like that when phones are on the brink of having similar specs.

Wow, I'm impressed. Still no front facing camera though :-(
