Yesterday we have posted about HP Slate Promotional Video, and now Engadget has leaked its detail specification that looks pretty promising.
As you can read, The green bold texts are the benefits of HP Slate and the Red texts are the threats. The result? 6 vs 4, HP Slate Tablet win the tight match. Although there are some critical lacks (the WiFi-N, battery life and the price), HP Slate Tablet is practically faster, with flash support and VGA webcam equipped.
The details of HP Slate tablet are as follow:
- has an 8.9-inch (1024×600) capacitive multi-touch-capable screen with pen/digitizer support
- a 1.6 GHz Atom Z530 CPU
- 1GB of RAM (non-upgradable)
- Intel integrated graphics
- 32GB or 64GB of flash storage
- an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card
- forward-facing VGA webcam
- and a 3MP webcam at the back
- an accelerometer, 802.11 b/g (and not n) WiFi
- Bluetooth with optional 3G, WWAN & GPS
- one USB 2.0 port
- One 2-cell battery for up to 5 hours of operation
- HP’s Slate measures 150 x 234 x 14.7 mm
- weights 670 grams
- Runs Windows 7 Home Premium

Although the detail specification and pricing has been unveiled, the availability remain undisclosed (some said is in September). It’s bad because iPad could just monopolize the market and make their debut successful if HP cannot launch Slate Tablet immediately.
