  • The HP Slate's Future Lies Within The PDA's History

    The HP Slate's Future Lies Within The PDA's History

    Remember the Sony Clie PDA line? Yeah, the big flip-style ones. These were the HP Slates of the first half of the decade. Let me explain. PDAs were the hot gadget item before smartphones. They instantly earned the owner geek credibility points and models were coming from nearly every manufacturer between 2000 and 2004. HP had the Jornada, and later the iPAQ after buying Compaq. There was the Dell… Read More

    Yet More Pics Of The HP Slate Leak

    The HP Slate is turning out to be one of HP’s worst kept secrets as another round of honestly unflattering pics hit the ol’ tubes today. A good amount of time, so-called leaks are actually ploys from the market department, but the last few HP Slate leaks do absolutely nothing to create a positive buzz. (e.g. the hands-on video) These five pics aren’t any different. Either HP… Read More

  • Video: The HP Slate Windows 7 Tablet Gets An Early YouTube Review

    The HP Slate is a real product -- numerous mentions from HP VPs and various leaks state that -- but it's far from "official." Somehow, though, a somewhat-thorough video review was just posted on the ol' Interweb for the whole word to see.¬†Remember, this product is headed for the enterprise market and you can't even buy it, so don't get all flame-happy when you see with your own eyes that Windows… Read More

    A Massive War Is Approaching As The Tablet Market Cannot Sustain Six Separate Platforms

    Can you hear that? It’s the sound of war. Better choose your side soon, too. The tablet wars are going to get nasty. Apple’s army is prepped, already backed by over 3 million zealous iPad owners. But the Google Android horde is quickly banding together and will soon offer countless weapons from several major CE houses and dozens of smaller camps. Google is also quietly forming the… Read More

  • Is An HP Tablet Launching Soon? The HP Website Thinks So

    Is An HP Tablet Launching Soon? The HP Website Thinks So

    HP has at least a couple of tablets in development; that's a fact. There is the HP Slate 500, the Palmpad, the Android printer thing, and probably a few proper tablets not yet leaked along with the already-available convertible notebook line. So it only makes sense that the new form factor gets its own dedicated section on HP.com. Previously the convertible models were slumming with the normal… Read More

  • HP Confirmed The Palmpad's Rumored 2011 Launch

    Nothing really new besides the little tidbit of info that confirms that the HP Slate is coming soon and the Palmpad will launch in early 2011.
