Just a few hours after HP unveiled its latest video telling us almost nothing about the company’s upcoming slate PC, the folks at Engadget got their hands on a possibly leaked document outlining the tablet’s specs.

Here’s the rundown: 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouch display, a graphics accelerator for 1080p HD video playback, 1GB of RAM, 32GB to 64GB of flash storage, and a battery that should be good for up to 5 hours. Unlike a certain competing tablet, this model will have several expansion options including an SDHC card slot and USB port. It also has 2 cameras, HDMI output, and an optional 3G modem.

Engadget says the 32GB version will run $549 while the 64GB model will set you back $599.

The HP Slate will apparently run Windows 7 Home Premium, which means it will feature the operating system’s touch-friendly features including simulated right-clicking, the ability to tap and drag some content like web pages in Internet Explorer, and touch-navigation for Windows 7 jump lists and other features. It will also have a custom touch-optimized user interface from HP, which I imagine will look something like the software HP puts on its TouchSmart line of PCs.

There’s still no word on a release date.

  1. Woah woah hold on hold up….Pen digitizer support???


    (even if it has Menlow)

  2. $50 between the 32GB and the 64GB doesn’t make much sense. If HP can get that 32GB model down by another $50 they’d be at the same price as a 16GB iPad (of course I’m assuming the leaked HP Slate specs are real).

  3. Here’s hoping that RAM can be upgraded. 1GB is a deal-breaker for me (although I’m not too happy with the thing having a Z-series Atom instead of Pineview)

    1. There might be upgrade options–but the chart specifically says users can’t upgrade themselves.

  4. Nothing official for release date, but there is word that it might be June. The Win7 will also have some sort of custom HP user-interface (mentioned in the chart).
