[DT] HP to release Slate 2 tablet with Windows 7 and stylus

After a rough few months, HP has jumped back into the PC arena with the Windows 7-powered Slate 2 tablet for business.

Just a week after Hewlett Packard announced that it would stay in the PC game, the lumbering electronics giant has unveiled its latest attempt at a winning tablet, the Slate 2.

Unlike the apparently defunct, webOS-based TouchPad tablet, the Slate 2 will be powered by Windows 7, and sport a 1024 x 600-resolution, 8.9-inch N-Trig multitouch display.

Most of this is quite similar to the Slate 500, which HP released last year. Upgrades to the Slate 2 include a faster Intel Atom Oak Trail Z670 processor, a 64GB mSATA drive, a longer 6-hour battery life (up from 2 hours) and a Swype keyboard. Oh, did we mention it has a stylus? Yeah, it does.

Also like the Slate 500, the Slate 2 is specifically designed for the enterprise, and includes a variety of heavy-duty security features, like a TPM Embedded Security Chip and BIOS support for Computertrace Pro for secure remote file management.

“HP is dedicated to the tablet PC category and continues to listen to customers and improve the product in ways that best address their business needs,†said Dan Forlenza, vice president and general manager of HP’s Commercial Managed IT Segment. “The HP Slate includes the right mix of rich features, support for custom-built applications, and the security and connectivity needed for today’s highly mobile and rigorous day-to-day professional environment.â€

We haven’t yet had a chance to try to the Slate 2, but from the spec list, we can’t imagine this tablet will make much of a splash. And because of this, it’s surprising that this is the first PC product HP chose to release after the future of its entire PC division hung in an unstable limbo. Perhaps the company is simply trying to get its old products out the door so the company can start fresh. But we were really hoping they’d come out swinging. This is more of a play slap.

The HP Slate 2 will be available worldwide for $699 later this month.

Win tablets are actually a bit rare but this should be Win8 or at least come with free upgrade to it.

And at $700 is there a chance it will have Kal El? One can live in hope

I know its a different tablet. I just wrote the wrong thing. On the older tablet people were trying to put android on there. I'm surprised that they didnt try it on here.

Wow, did HP learn nothing from the webOS fiasco?

To be fair this is more of an old school tablet(full computer in tablet form w/ stylus), but those were never really popular in the first place.

You guys know, they made a tablet with Windows 7 before the HP TouchPad right? ...

Called the HP Slate 500. It was marketed towards Business users and not the general public.

Really bro? It's not the old Atom, it's the new Atom.
A lot more powerful than what comes in most tablets.
