HP soon to release its Windows 7 based Slate 2
Turns out, despite abandoning the TouchPad, HP is not done yet with tablets, as it recently announced a new tablet, branded “Slate 2″, which means that its a continuation of its Windows 7 Tablet ‘Slate 500′.
The 8.9″ device features 1024×600 N-Trig display and a Swype Keyboard. Its hardware consists of 1.5GHz Atom Oak Trail, 64GB mSata drive, and a TPM chip. The device includes two cameras, a rear 3MP camera, and a front camera for video conferencing. The device also includes a bluetooth keyboard dock, a black cover, and 6 hour battery. Oh, and it also includs a Stylus.
Not a high end tablet really, but the price is appropriate, at 699 Dollars. The relase date is expected to be in November.
Looks like HJP is rejuvinaitng its tablet department, as CEO Meg Whitman, says that we will see “plenty of tablets” from them when Windows 8 is ready
