At 1.5 pounds this is an improvement and you can watch the video for a short walk through from Engadget. The screen is 8.9 and has digitizer capabilities which after many years of using a tablet, I would be lost without. It has an integrated VGA camera on the front for video conferencing and is Wi-Fi for WLAN.
They are certainly making room for all the open real estate here and getting about as slim as slim can get. The big advantage here is the ability to run corporate software and again a smaller unit to carry around. BD
Nope, you're not dreaming, but feel free to pinch yourself, rub your eyes or take a cold shower! You've read right -- the is finally official, and after all the teasing , back and forth , and ( very recent ) leaks , the Atom-powered, Windows 7 Slate will finally see the light of day -- though in a different way than originally intended. While the first videos released by HP may have made it seem like it would be for consumers, HP's tactfully changed its tune (don't forget it's got Palm / WebOS tablets on the way) and is now aiming the Slate at the enterprise and business market. Still, it will be available on HP's site for $799 to anyone who wishes to purchase one.
