We first got word of the WeTab (previously called the WePad) back in May, where we were led to understand that the 11.6-inch tablet would be running via a Linux OS and was all set for a July launch.

And, after a number of delays the tablet has turned up at IFA, and it is indeed running Linux.

But it is the Linux version that is most intriguing, for the WeTab OS is based on MeeGo - Intel and Nokia's joint OS effort.

And, by the looks of the video it all runs pretty smoothly.

The desktop looks a bit messy with all the widgets scattered about (Pocket-lint insists on a tidy desktop), but the mapping overview of all the homescreens down the right hand side is a nice touch.

The video shows that the web browser is capable of running Flash, and the inclusion of Open Office makes the WeTab a serious competitor as you'll be able to use it for more than simple media playback and web browsing.

It also boasts a webcam, a HDMI port, two USB ports, an SD memory card slot and a SIM card slot.

We already know that the WeTab is packing a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor with 1GB of RAM. There's also 16GB of flash memory on board too.

A September launch is planned and we had previously heard that the WeTab would sell for around 449 euros.
