Video: WeTab Rev. 2.0 running WeOS 2.1.1 based on MeeGo

Here’s a long 24 minute review of the WeTab Rev 2.0 – pretty much one of the only MeeGo devices out on sale. Specs (very netbook like):

  • Atom N450
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16/32GB SSD
  • 11.6″ 1366X768 resolution
  • HDMI out
  • 2 USB3.5MMjack
  • 4 in 1 card reader
  • SIM Card
  • 1.3MP camera on front
  • 980g

Unless you’ve been watching the WeTab development, you’ll note that the GUI is quite different to many other tablets. It looks quite archaic at first but it’s actually very practical. On the side you have your navigation panel with a visual thumb scroll bar for your homescreen, shortcuts/quick settings. The middle is your homescreen +widgets.

First impression is that it’s pretty nippy. You’ll see appearing on the left side, another navigation visual scroll bar in browser mode. This means you can quickly scroll down to any point in the browser (and know where you are as you see a little preview). The rest of the browser buttons appear here too.

Screen rotation he says is “ok”…hmm…a bit too slow for me though. Pinch to zoom apparently better than the windows tablets. Performance advantage of MeeGo on atom platform.

Music player looks optimized for mouse controls :s. Gallery nice, pinch to zoom no problem. Apparently such a huge difference from WeTab 1.1.

It’s very much optimized for two handed landscape use with all controls pretty much accessible by both thumbs. Is battery life mentioned?

And this is where FireFox and Flash crashed on my browser (I don’t know why it’s more prone to die on my new laptop)…anyway, I’ll leave you guys to watch the review yourself if you want…
