So that company, what was the name of that company? Let me remember….ah! It was called Neofonie. They are making the WePad, at this point such a hyped tablet that it could possibly rival the iPad straight in the face. But now maybe due to pressure for the word “pad” from a little company named after a fruit in Cupertino, they have changed that mildly-awesome name to the sucky McSuck suck name “WeTab”. So instead of “pad”, like iPad, it’s “tab” like the word tablet. Now let’s figure out why this happened:
On their Facebook page they announced the following in German, since the company is (from Germany):
“Liebe Freunde, im Zuge der Umbenennung des WePad in WeTab gestalten wir heute die gesamte Außenkommunikation entsprechend um. Diese Fanpage bekommt in wenigen Minuten einen neuen Namen und ist dann unter facebook.com/wetab erreichbar. Ihr bleibt automatisch Mitglied und wir hoffen, Ihr bleibt auch Fans des WeTab. Das Tablet bleibt das Gleiche, nur der Name ändert sich.
Viel Spaß hier weiterhin,
It basically means “we suck, and we had to change the name to WeTab instead of keeping WePad.” Okay, it doesn’t exactly say that we suck, but it does translate to that they had to change the name, and they didn’t clarify why. So that’s that, I suppose. Actually, no it isn’t. A fan recently uploaded a new company logo to WeTab’s Facebook page:
I totally agree with you.
