Chances Of The HP Slate Being A Competitor To The iPad? Dead!


Looks like HP Slate managed to get into the hands of real people and the verdict was: Nothing to see here. Move on.

I saw something like this happening. I was hoping HP would be able to tweak the devices to usable but that didn’t seem to pan out. The consensus on the device was that it’s just a mini netbook.

There’s no way a mini netbook can compete with the iPad. The OS is still Windows 7 and there in lies the problem. You would think Microsoft would make a more mobile version of Windows 7 to make it more touch friendly.

Here’s the mini-review. The device is not out yet and maybe can be retweaked further. We’ll see what happens.

Still hoping the Microsoft Courier can aleast be an interesting device…
