German technology company Neofonie is betting that its new tablet computer can ride the wave of iPad popularity. The first step toward getting attention is the name: the WePad. Only selfish jerks would get an "i" Pad, right? If you want to be included in the crowd you'd obviously opt for the WePad. iPad knockoffs are sure to become even more common if the iPad itself proves a success.

The design is very similar to the iPad, with a single flat touchscreen. The WePad appears to be a little bit larger than the iPad. iPad knockoffs are something to look forward to; they may improve upon Apple's innovation.
