  1. Engadget has scored an internal HP document that reveals and otherwise confirms most of the Slate's specifications. Presumably intended for employee eyes only, the slide shows a side-by-side comparison of the Slate and iPad, complete with major pros and cons highlighted.

    I want this, very badly.

    Time to start saving up.

    But the cheapest one is a 16GB, the HP has 32GB so it is $50 less than the 32GB Ipad Apple is selling.

    Also if HP would have also released a 16GB I think it would have been $50 less than the Ipad

    I agree however I'm going to wait and see who else comes out with a product.

    Now this is a product i would like to by.

    and it can actually do 2 things at once! :)
     
  7. A brand new tablet with a wireless b/g in? WHY???????

    I will not buy anything that does not have wireless n because a single "g" client on my 2.4GHz "n" network will degrade the performance of all clients to "g" speeds. Upgrading to a mixed 2.4/5GHz network is too much for what I need it.

    Guest - Wireless 'N' should be demanded for Slate. I can't believe that HP would let that one slide. That alone is the one major hesitation point. But perhaps an Mvix Nubbin can make up for that downfall? http://www.mvixusa.com/product/nubbin

    So Slate wins at:
    Web Browsing (with Adobe Flash and Air support)
    Price at 32 GB
    CPU
    GPU / Graphics
    Connectivity
    Camera
    ...and I'd argue the OS is superior as well.

    Loses in:
    Battery life
    WiFi support
    Display size

    If a Nubbin can work in Slate and fix the 802.11n issue, I don't see many reasons to favor the iPad.

    IMO: HP Slate, plus HDTV Media Dock FTW!
