The company who originally released their device as the WePad, has officially announced a name change to the WeTab. What spawned the name change of the WePad?  Was it too confusingly similar to the iPad? Or perhaps a pad was not the ultimate desired intention, and a tab would be more fitting to it’s intended use.  I mean seriously, a WePad does sound a little like a pad you are going to urinate on.  Ok, they are from Germany we can give them that, but just ask a 10 year old from North America and they could have figured it out pretty quickly.

WeTab’s press release states “To clearly differentiate our products within the international market fortablet computers,” I guess they were getting interest from other markets around the world, like drug stores and geriatric care centers.
