HP Slate – Fiction or Non Fiction?

We’ve seen some talk about the HP Slate coming back.  It was canned several months ago, but just recently we’ve started to hear about reviews and product spotted out in the wild.  Most recently is a blog post from Engadget [source for these images]:

It’s well known the Slate was canceled back in March and I find it very unlikely the company would about-face yet again to re-launch the tablet PC. My theory is the guy posting video on the web, is a guy who got his hands on a prototype unit while it was in development.  The HP Slate most likely had hundreds if not thousands of prototypes made and clearly some of them have leaked into the public sector. The HP Slate shown in the video on Engadget’s site does show so interesting tips.  For example the processing time to switch between landscape and portrait.  We also like the SD and USB connectivity along with nice dock station for the tablet PC.  In our opinion, these to features alone, set it apart from the iPad product.
