German IT firm Neofonie unveiled a tablet PC to compete with iPad at a press conference in Berlin on Monday.

The WePad sports a 11.6-inch screen, larger than iPad's 9.7-inch one, and two USB ports. Unlike the iPad, it also features a camera.

The 16-gigabyte model will cost 449 euros (W750,000, US$1=W1,122) and the company will begin taking pre-orders from April 27.
