Recently Engadget has published the following comparison tablet reveling for the first time the HP Stale Specifications.

Slate will run $549 in its base configuration, which has a 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive multitouch display, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor with UMA graphics and an accelerator for 1080p video playback (we’re assuming it’s a Broadcom Crystal HD chip), 32GB of flash storage and 1GB of non-upgradeable RAM. There’s also a $599 version with 64GB of storage, and both models will have a five-hour battery, an SDHC slot, two camera, a USB port, a SIM card slot for the optional 3G modem, and a dock connector for power, audio, and HDMI out.

The HP State has all the conditions to be a winner. Using W7 gives the Slate the advantage of covering what the iPad can’t cover: daily work. Now, the iPad is using a touch friendly and really easy to use OS. Very light and as result the performance is great. The question is, can HP create an UI with a performance good enough to compete against the iPad? I hope so. The second question is boot time. Nobody has said anything about this topic. How HP will fix this issue? A dual boot? More information is needed. The specifications are good, the design is good and the marketing camping behind is good. Oh! and the price is good too! All the ingredients to become a winner.

    Interesting if it is true.

    this would be terrible if they cancel this just for the battery life.. I would buy 2 of them faithfully just to get all that quality.. Hope they show up and show out!
