The WePad has already had to cross a few hurdles and overcome some skepticism on it's way to a release, and it's now undergone another big change -- it's just been renamed the "WeTab." According to the company, that's been done in order to "clearly differentiate our products within the international market for tablet computers." No other changes, from the looks of it, and the company says that pre-orders of the device are not affected by the name switch-a-roo -- although we suppose you can cancel if you're fiercely averse to anything named "Tab." Coincidentally, it seems that the tablet has also recently gone up for pre-order on Amazon.de, with it demanding the expected €449 for the 16GB WiFi version, and €569 for the 32GB 3G model -- still no promised ship date, unfortunately.
