    The base version of the HP Slate will retail for $549, which includes 32 GB storage, 1 GB RAM, a 1.6 GHz Atom processor, and an 8.9-inch multitouch screen at 1024 x 600 pixel resolution. A 64 GB configuration will be available for $599.

    Both versions will also include an SDHC card slot, USB port, two cameras (one external 3-megapixel and one front-facing VGA for videoconferencing usage), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, support for 1080p video playback, a dock connector for power, audio, and HDMI out to your TV, and a SIM card slot for optional 3G connectivity. They’ll both also be running Windows 7 Home Premium with a custom HP touch-optimized user interface. Battery life is reportedly five hours, which could be a point of concern as the Slate goes up against the iPad’s 10 hours.

    June Launch is Rumored

    Not bad, but with a 5 hour battery life? useless

    Useless? I wouldn't say that. That's what I roughly get out of my new Macbook Pro. Also, don't forget that it's running a full desktop OS, Windows 7. It's not designed specifically for a tablet, but I'd take that any day over a completely closed environment that also lacks basic standard features. Then again, it all depends on what you want to do with it.

    If I got HP Slate, I wouldn't use it as intensively as my Laptop, and for the purposes I would be using it (watching movies, reading ebooks) 5 hours seems a bit bad. But your right, depends on what one would do with it

    Don't forget, companies always exaggerate the battery life. 5 hours does not mean 5 hours

    i agree.
    especially since its running windows 7. i feel like its gonna be laggy and sh*t.
    battery life sucks. even if it has cameras, i still feel like the ipad is superior.

    Huh? Since when has Windows 7 been laggy? It's not laggy due to the actual os, it's due to a slow computer.
