[citation][nom]drakefyre[/nom]Why can't these companies show just a little bit of creativity? What's with the pad nonsense? Make up your own name people, imitation is just another form of flattery. These types of naming schemes just make Apple look good and other companies look like they are playing catch up, which they sort of are, but they shouldn't be so obvious about it.[/citation]
You realize this is Lenovo right? The company who has been using the name ThinkPAD for years? As in WAY before Apple released their iPad, and even before Lenovo bought the devision IBM used the name ThinkPad, seems to me the one imitating is Apple. LePad (needs new name BTW) can be seen as an extension of their laptop ThinkPad line and nothing to do with the iPad.
