      Meet the HP Slate 500

      Global Agenda credits
      There have been some leaks here and there, but now we know, based on this HP document, that it’s officially called the HP Slate 500 Tablet PC. As HP had said before, it comes with Windows 7 and is aimed at corporate customers. We’ve listed all the specs below, but some of the ones that popped out at us: it weighs just 1.5 pounds, has an 8.9-inch multitouch display and two cameras, and it takes input from a stylus, which they’re calling the HP Slate Digital Pen.

      Some more detailed specs: The 8.9-inch LED-backlit display sports a 1,024×600-pixel resolution. The 500 comes with Windows 7 Professional installed, a 1.86GHz Intel Atom Z540 processor, and a 64GB solid-state drive. Also inside: an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500, a combination stereo headphone-microphone jack, a VGA (video graphics array) front-facing Webcam, a 3-megapixel camera on the back, Bluetooth connectivity, and 802.11b/g/n wireless connectivity.

      Input devices include an optional keyboard and optical mouse, as well as the HP Slate Digital Pen. The tablet also comes with Evernote, Adobe Reader, and Adobe Acrobat built in, along with some HP-branded software.

      The big question now is the price. We contacted HP for comment and didn’t hear back right away. We’ll update this post when we do.
