hp slate

We know all about the PalmPad now (or at least, a little about it), but word has come out that HP’s Windows 7 tablet, the Slate, is still alive and kicking. So yes, there will be both a Slate and a PalmPad, and it looks like both will be getting stylus inputs along with the multitouch capabilities. HP’s site lists eight different models for the Slate, presumably offering different storage capacities and perhaps versions with and without 3G. But they’ll all have an 8.9-inch screen, as well as dual cameras for webchat and photos. The tablet wars are heating up.
