Video Daily: The HP Slate tablet Just one day after Apple unveiled their first iPad commercial during the Academy Awards, HP is fighting back, releasing a few videos that show off the powerful features of the upcoming Slate tablet.
The Windows 7-based tablet was first shown off at the CES event earlier this year, and should be Apple's biggest rival when it is released.

"With this Slate product, you're getting a full Web browsing experience in the palm of your hand," says Phil McKinney, vice president and CTO for HP's personal systems group (PSG). "No watered-down Internet, no sacrifices."

The Slate runs Flash no problem, unlike the iPad, which is looking like it will never have Flash support.

It does look nice...just think, soon you will be able to have the whole internet with you all the time...humans would no longer need to memorize anything, simply using their slate to get whatever information they might need.

I bet this thing will stop a lot of arguments in bars and taverns.

Thumbs up on the arguments part :)

Can't see the video, does this thing look slick enough to bite? I need a photo album sort of gadget, touch screen of course.
