Rumor has it that HP’s infamous Slate PC is going to be launching in June and will be priced at $540.
The HP Slate has the ability to run Flash from a few demo videos I’ve seen and it runs Windows 7.The Slate is also rumored to have an Atom CPU, Flash support, USB connectivity, a memory card reader, and a back-mounted webcam.
The way I see it, Microsoft needs to work on the OS because I doubt users will find the UI very finger friendly. If HP and Microsoft can deliver a great experience with this Slate, Apple will definitely have a competitor to it’s iPad.
We will see if the rumors are true when HP announces the Slate.
