Is That the HP Slate on HP’s Website?

PCWorld is linking to an HP catalog page that sure looks like it is for the HP Slate. Called the HP Slate 500, the page says it is running Windows 7 Premium, has a 9.4 inch screen, has both pen and touch input. Another link mentioned in the PCWorld article says that the HP Slate 500 is running a 1.6GHz processor.

It all looks quasi official and I’m guessing the button got pushed a bit early on this one. But given that we’ve been hearing about PalmPad trademarks and other HP Slate news of late, who knows.
