It's an Intel powered Android based tablet pc, and it obviously looks quite similar to the iPad, but costs a fifth of the price (a smidge above US$100). It doesn't look too bad apparently, even though it seems to be much slower and notchier than the source of its inspiration, judging by the video:

Apple’s products carry a premium and supplies of the iPad have been limited but the low-priced rivals are expected to be plentiful and encourage mass adoption. Unit shipments of tablet devices are predicted to increase by 230 per cent over the next year, according to the In-Stat research firm, while Deloitte forecasts tens of millions of sales worth more than $2bn by the end of 2011.
“With pricing at around $100 and wireless broadband rolled out in both advanced and emerging economies to enable an “apps” infrastructure, this will definitely increase the size of the market,” says Richard Brown, head of marketing at chipmaker Via.
He expects its Prizm processors will be powering 50 tablets announced at Computex. Most will have limited memory and storage and will run web-based applications. With chips based on designs of the UK’s Arm and using Google’s free Android operating system, manufacturing costs can be as low as $60-$70, he says.
