At this stage, it feels like a launch for HP's Windows 7 slate might never come. We've heard plenty of talk about WebOS devices since HP purchased Palm earlier this year but we've heard very little about the company's plans for Windows devices. Back in July the company said the Windows tablet was still alive but as an enterprise product that could possibly launch in the fall.
Keeping the hope alive is this video from a YouTube user who claims to have an early HP Slate model. He's posted a review of the device to the video-sharing site and though it's a little on the short side (four minutes), he's pretty thorough and gives us a decent look at the ever so elusive Windows tablet.
Check it out and let us know what you think! Will you consider buying one if/when HP releases it?
For now I will stick with my iPad, but I look forward to more Windows offerings.
The iPad, while great, (I own one too) is not a real computer. In the moments I attempt to be productive on my iPad, I spend literally hours looking for Apps and work a rounds to do what I want it to do. It seems we are becoming a nation that wants dumb down Apps over real, well done software.
Ugh oh... This will never sell... No wonder HP pulled the Win 7 Slate off the market.
