In spite of recently dismissing its plans to launch a HP Slate, followed by the trademark registration of the Palmpad, HP’s attitude towards tablets remains a bit of a mystery. However, a recent find on the company’s site (a product listing) points towards plans concerning slates. Uncovered as the HP Slate 500, the device we’re talking about might run Windows 7.

Other unconfirmed specs include a 1.6GHz processor and 1GB RAM. Could this be another name for the HP PalmPad webOS device we’ve heard about the other day? The product page of the mysterious Slate 500 also mentions two cameras and auto screen rotation, while speculations claim that the slate could use a dual touchscreeen.

The question is: webOS or Win 7?
