WiiPad/Zenithink Versus the iPad

So, you want to know how the new WiiPad (with internal components manufactured by Zenithink) stacks up to the iPad? Look no further. Shipping at around $250, the base model of this device is much cheaper, lighter, has a slightly larger screen, and gives you the addition of USB connections that the iPad doesn’t ship with out of the box. Unfortunately, it has a slightly weaker battery life, a resistive touch screen, and no wireless-N, yet. It also currently doesn’t ship with anything more than 2gb of onboard memory, and Android is supposed to be available as of next week. For half the price, would you take the plunge?
