HP Slate specs leak, get compared the iPad

Uh oh! Sounds like someone is going to be in trouble. The word is out on the probable spec and pricing on the HP Slate, and HP is definitely aware of the iPad. Obviously an internal document, it’s very interesting to see exactly what HP considers a threat, and what they consider to be an advantage.

Looking at this, I think I’ll be buying a Slate. HP looks to have a better processor, more ports, and (more) open operating system. I think it just goes to show that while the first salvo in the tablet wars has definitely been fired, it ain’t over yet.

Oh, and $549 for 32GB version? Nice!
