Until 2010 Neofonie passed most of its time under the media radar. In April 2010 it came to sudden fame for presenting a competing device to the much ballyhooed Apple iPad. The Neofonie WeTab runs on stronger hardware and uses a combination of MeeGo and Android as operating system. The WeTab was launched in Germany in September 2010.
