While the blogosphere’s attention has been turned toward the upcoming WebOS Slate from HP, it looks like the company might be getting ready to launch a Windows 7 powered tablet. A device called the HP Slate 500 has started appearing on some HP web sites.
There aren’t a lot of details, but here’s what we know about the HP Slate 500 so far:
- It has an 8.9 inch display
- The slate runs Windows 7 Home Premium
- There are two cameras for shooting photos or video and web conferencing
- It will have a 1.6GHz unspecified processor (probably Intel Atom)
The HP Slate 500 will also reportedly support pen input — although it’s not clear at this point whether that means it has an active digitizer, a resistive touchscreen or some other form of touch input.
It looks like there will be at least 8 different configurations, but it’s not clear what differences will exist between these models.
