HP unveiled its first tablet PC, named as the HP Slate 500. The HP slate 500 is priced at $799 and is now available in the market.
We previously saw about the specifications of this tablet. This tablet comes with a 8.9 inch Diagonal, 1024 x 600 pixel, multi-touch display with 2GB DDR2 RAM and Windows 7. But the main disadvantage is the lack of 3G support. It would have been a better iPad killer, if it has come with a 3G support.
Carol Hess-Nickels, director of business notebook marketing at HP described the Slate 500: “It’s really like a full-function PC, it runs Windows, it will run your office applications, it just so happens to be in a slate form factor.” Hess-Nickels expects retail, healthcare and insurance companies will build custom applications to take advantage of the Slate 500’s portability and power.
