Last week HP announced its business-centric Windows 7-powered tablet, the HP Slate 2. In addition to announcing it, they also gave a sneak preview of what it would be like to buy it through an unboxing video. While the video shows a prototype version of the tablet (some features such as the protective case are missing), it’s basically what you’re going to get when you purchase the HP Slate 2.
There aren’t a whole lot of extras you get with the tablet, but the stand/dock is a nice touch, allowing you to prop your tablet up for when you’re working or watching movies. The tablet looks solidly built, and the presence of a stylus should get some people excited. Other specs of the tablet include: an 8.9″ 1024 x 600 display, an Intel Atom Z760 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, Windows 7 (32 bit), Optional 3G, WiFi, a USB 2.0 port, and a 30Whr battery.
The HP Slate 2 is expected to go on sale later this year with a price tag of $699. Check out the unboxing video:Related articles:
