HP Slate, the true iPad Competitor
While folks are salivating to buy the iPad, I patiently wait for the HP’s Slate. I love the form factor of iPad. But lack of true Flash Video support means I cannot watch videos from millions of sites. Forget Dora the explorer, you cannot watch the videos from BBC / CNN / … even Teluglobe.com (if its not a YouTube embedded video) on the iPad.

We gave everyone a peek at HP’s slate device during CES 2010 and people got excited. Last month, we let you see a little more about what our slate can do – and you guys lit up the Internet with comments.
Well, we’re listening – and want to give you a little more insight. So, here’s what I can tell you for now without getting into too much trouble with my boss:
With this slate product, you’re getting a full Web browsing experience in the palm of your hand. No watered-down Internet, no sacrifices. We just posted a quick video showing some more of what that’s like as well as how the slate device will work as an eBook reader. Enjoy the short clip (and the techno soundtrack).
