HP Slate (The iPad killer) Main Specifications

CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

HP Slate is expected to be the main iPad killer and of course, it has all the specifications and background to be one. Since it is powered by both Microsoft and HP, it is going to be a killer for sure.

I spend yesterday night comparing the features of Apple iPad and HP Slate. I found HP Slate to be a great competitor for iPad.

The only thing that lacks in HP Slate is 5-Hour Battery Life (iPad provides 10 Hrs).

HP Slate

Below I mentioned some of the main specifications of HP Slate.

So what’s the price of this stunning iPad killer?

There are two versions, 32GB and 64GB. The starting model of this gadget with 32GB storage will be available for $549 and the price may increase according to additional features, says sources. So I guess 64GB model will be available for 599$.

When is it launching?

The HP Slate PC will be available later this 2010.

      I don't think that the HP Slate will actually be an iPad killer. There is one simple reason, windows. Now I don't hate windows, I prefer it to any mac OS, and Windows 7 has done a great job of eliminating a lot of the problems Vista had; but the fact remains that windows doesn't play well with weak processors and minimal amounts of ram. In this instance, 1.6Ghz and 1GB of ram is certainly not enough to enjoy the experience of windows 7. And the thought of trying to watch 1080P and not have problems seems to be idealist. Itis just not going to be able to work fluidly like an iPad does.
      But I guess we'll have to wait and see if HP has a trick or two up their sleeve for making this device work.

        Tech Sputter, I guess the combination of HP and Windows are perfect. I also think 1.6Ghz will be perfect for watching HD quality movies (I want you to remind that, iPad has only 1 Ghz). ๐Ÿ™‚

      Very interesting article. I am not really a fan of the HP Slate since I am a big Apple fan. But the Slate does look very nice and I’m sure there will be some good competition between the two brands.

      hp slate sounds good, whether it will be an ipad killer, only time will tell. However, one thing it will surely kill with its amazing high end price is our wallets…

      if only these companies can put their time and energy into producing things which are cheap and light, things would be a lot better ๐Ÿ™

      Looks much better than Ipad ๐Ÿ™‚

      One of the major drawbacks of iPad is that it’s not multi-tasking. Is it the case with HP slate also?

    • Josiah From Free ipad

      There is one thing that Apple is always going to have over any competitor, the massive applications library. HP won’t have it, obviously. The iPhone is still crushing the competition because of that darn app store.

      The specifications sound interesting and appear to give iPad tough competition, but lets see weather is HP good enough to challenge Steve Job’s marketing strategies..

    • Chethan
