We’ve just managed to score the full list of HP Slate specs, plus a pricing and even a comparison chart between the two. Apparently, the leak was due to HP employees, who leaked an internal Slate presentation that compared the device to the iPad, as you can see below. The device will cost $549, in the 32GB flash storage version, or $599 in the 64GB version.
HP’s new product comes with a 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouch display, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor with UMA graphics, 1GB RAM (no upgrades available) and an accelerator for 1080p video playback. There’s also an SDHC card slot on board, two cameras, a SIM card slot, an USB port, a dock connector (power, audio and HDMI out) and the tablet will run Windows 7 Home Premium.
All of these are unofficial details, but, as you can see in the image above, the HP Slate is better than the iPad in many areas, specially as far as processing power, the number of ports and cameras are concerned. Which one will get more sales before the year end?
