Looks like the specs for the HP Slate just got out thanks to Engadget. A memo was “leaked” and shows the specs of the HP Slate as well as the price and a comparison to the iPad. The specifications are as follows:
- Display: 8.9″ Capacitive multi-touch display
- Processor: 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor
- Storage: 32GB/64GB Flash memory with upgradeable SD card
- RAM: 1GB RAM
- Ports: HDMI Output, headphone jack, USB port
- Front facing camera and outward facing camera
- Price: $549-$599
The OS is obviously Windows 7 but HP is working on a UI of their own to make the device more finger friendly. It’s going to be an interesting thing with HP vs Apple. Many people will claim that this is a true tablet/slate PC and people will say Apple has the upper hand with their app store.
When the device comes out, rumored to be in June, expect a lot of sparks to fly from Apple fanboys and PC heads.
