Interested in the mythical HP Slate, the compact Dell Streak, an Android powered micro-tablet, or something called a Netpad? Why not try an iPad?
While I wasn’t able to reproduce the advertising on Google.com, TechCrunch is right when they say that Google.co.uk results show iPad Google AdWords when you search for any of the above terms. I don’t know what Apple has to fear from the European market; the Dell Streak and gimmicky Android tablets shouldn’t pose a threat to Cupertino’s empire. I suppose it’s better to be safe than not, but it’s kind of an interesting tactic when the iPad is only the most popular thing on earth besides the iPhone 4.
