HP Slate – Reborn Now The Slate 500 – Windows 7

Well none of us are 100% sure as to what is going on over at HP these days, especially when it comes to the previously named HP Slate running full tablet edition Windows 7. One minute it was here the next gone, just like that. Now it appears that this tablet is back from the dead, don’t worry it is not going to eat you. The guys over at IDG News spotted this 8.9 inch slate now being called the Slate 500 hanging out just chillin’ on a rather hidden HP.com page. The details are few and far between, but they do seem to coincide with all that we originally had heard about the tablet — it runs Windows 7 Home Premium, has “exclusive” HP software and two cameras, but that’s not it, IDG also realized that the Slate 500 was Energy Star certified. A listing for the same product on Energy Star’s site confirms that it will have a 1.6GHz processor. That too seems to line up with what we had heard about the Slate having a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU. It all seems to good to be true, is this the tablet us hardcore users have been waiting for, something we can actually take with us and not worry about bring a laptop because we want to edit a site, or watch flash content. Something that is made for media and productivity. Wow I know I just tripped out, I really want this thing, and I think this is the fist time that I have been excited for a Windows device. It does seem strange considering that HP filed for the trademark name PalmPad yesterday. we figured the Slate may have seen its day. There’s no telling what will happen next, but it sure is looking like a HP Win 7 and WebOS tablet may just live in harmony. It is a good day for tablet lovers.
