  • WeTabs' drawbacks way outweigh advantages over iPad

    Drawbacks:<br>1) <b>like twice shorter time run on the battery;</b><br>2) display is no IPS -- second rate quality (colours and contrast get lost at angles);<br>3) it is heavier;<br>4) bigger size (and significantly);<br>5) almost no choice of available software applications;<br>6) no way to access the biggest media portal worldwide -- iTunes;<br>7) raw, immature OS.<br><br>As I said, WeTab has its advantages, but comparing to some of drawbacks listed here, to most mass buyers those advantages are <b>meaningless</b> in significance.

      No iTunes is a disadvantage??! Interesting notion. I love how half of what you said is just talking points. The iPad is heavy enough and large enough to be awkward when using it, so a little heavier and larger is insignificant in my mind.

    The TV OS is nice, but the device is bulky. It should really fit the Nettop form factor, not the TiVo / Boxee / Sat Box form factor. An eMachines ER1402-05 or EL1333G-03w would fit the home better than another box.
