HP Slate 2 takes over the Slate 500

HP Slate 2I know that a number of professionals were interested in the HP Slate, and it so happens that it just got a refresh today with… the HP Slate 2. From the outside, it mostly looks the same, but there is now a 32GB option (the maximum is 64GB), the battery life has gained a theoretical 30mn and Swype for windows has been integrated, which is great because the default windows keyboard is not very good, and Swype is pretty awesome, especially on a tablet. The second upgrade is rather a good downgrade, in terms of pricing: at $699, the Slate 2 is more affordable than the Slate 500 (by $100), and we welcome the change.On the software side, HP has integrated Computrace Pro, a security software that can help track/locate lost computers. If it comes down to it, it is also capable of wiping out the data remotely. Overall, this is a refresh that makes it less expensive, more and ergonomic.
