    Hello,

    I've seen that the tablet WeTab is android powered. However there is OpenOffice on it. How can this be possible ? OpenOffice is not available for android !

    well thats because the wetab operates on a linux-based os not android and sure they are similar but they are not exactly the same

    I saw that this tablet was on Android somewhere ( or maybe I've dreamed it ?). Now it's clear. Thank you.

    no your right a lot of places have it listed as android because it is suppose to be able to run android apps, so i guess its more like a hybrid os

    The specs clearly state that it is x86. If it's Android, it wont be very good.

    Openoffice will have to run in Windows or Ubuntu.

    This is like a netbook without a keyboard. Think dual or triple boot
