WePad changes name to WeTab

Remember that pretty Android tablet that was announced a few weeks ago called the “WePad”?

A friend of mine is tablet shopping, and she was interested in the iPad. I suggested she wait for the WePad, and I even tried to show her how awesome this thing looked. However, when I tried the WePad website, it was down. I couldn’t find anything WePad related. Even some WePad videos that were up a few weeks ago had been taken down.  It was like the WePad had disappeared.

Then I found this. They’ve changed the name from WePad to WeTab. Speculation is that they are pre-emptively avoiding entanglements with a certain company that seems a bit more eager to sue competition.
