Android-based iPad alternative

1&1 released an android-based iPad alternative named as SmartPad. It features 7″ LED Touch-Display (compared to 9.7″ iPad) with resolution 800×480 (compared to 1024×768 of iPad). The weight is of course also lighter (0.47kg compared to 0.68kg). Moreover, the memory is same (256 MB) but the processor is just as half as iPad (500MHz). What’s interesting is it has SD card slot (which is a must, since the included flash drive is just 1GB) and USB port. Other features are pretty similar. You can check the detailed technical specification in this page.

It is currently sold together with 1&1 internet subscription with 24 months contract.

What do you think? Will this device be strong iPad contender?
