iPad vs. WePad vs. Adam

I know a lot of people are waiting for iPad to come out. In the past 1 month I have come across at least 2 contenders who are sort of better than iPad in specifications but probably not design. I just want to layout the difference between these 3 players in Touch pad/ Tablet PC market.

    I currently pwn a Palm Pre, and actually love the webOS, and the abilities of a linux based OS for multitasking purposes and installing homebrew applications. Currently, I have 394 applications (some patches) installed, and only purchased 20 of theses apps.

    I have no immediate desire to buy an iPad, but I am leaning towards a HP Slate, if they plan to port webOS on it as the OS.

    However, can you provide an expanded chart that includes the HP Slate, Apple iPad, and WePad? The WePad is also drawing some interest, and may be my backup to the Slate, which is dependant on the OS.

    Thanks and Best Regards,
