Up until now there's been very little information available about the HP Slate. The company announced it at CES but specs, a price and a release date were kept under wraps. We knew we'd see it this year sometime, but we didn't know when.
Today Spanish Website Clipset reports that the device will launch this coming June, with a price tag of €400. Though this translates to $546, Engadget suggests that HP won't do a direct currency conversion when it comes to pricing.
Clipset claims to have word straight from HP on this one and goes on to detail some of the device's specs. If the site's sources are to be believed, the Slate will pack Intel's Atom processor, USB connectivity, a memory card reader, a rear-mounted integrated webcam and Windows 7. Perhaps most notable is the presence of Flash support, something the iPad does not have.
While the launch is set for June, European retail availability is set for "before September." No word on whether the Android version of the device will be any cheaper or if it will launch at the same time.
