The HP Slate was one of the first tablets to surface as potential iPad competitors, a video of it making it out at around the same time as the latter's launch.
Then, sometime later, the same product went through some episodes of being scrapped and un-scrapped, following the acquisition of Palm and its webOS.
Now, a Windows 7 tablet has become the subject of some YouTube videos, the latest having been uploaded just a short while ago.
The so-called business model, though still a prototype, has a configuration centered around the Intel Atom Z540 CPU, which has a clock speed of 1.86 GHz.
This chip is backed up by 2GB DDR2 RAM and paired with the GMA500 and Broadcom Crystal HD Enhanced Video accelerator.
There is also the 8.9-inch WSVGA screen and the same 60 GB of internal flash storage, plus the connectivity and I/O options.
The list includes 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, a SD card reader and two cameras, one on the front and one on the back.
As the video shows, the panel can recognize four simultaneous touch inputs and, though a bit slow, the browser can pinch-to-zoom.
Furthermore, a 2-cell 30WHr Lithium-ion Polymer battery is responsible with keeping the whole thing operational.
Finally, the packaging was pictured, along with the convenient dock that, besides letting the slate stand upright, has a HDMI connector and two USB ports.
There is, unfortunately, no way of knowing exactly when this device, loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium, will actually debut, nor at what price.
