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.


  1. What I find interesting is that the HP catalog page lists:

    WHAT’S IN THE BOX: headphones

    nothing else….some interesting headphones

  2. Pen support is HUGE!
    At 1.6GHz I would say atom N455, though the N550 would have been fantastic.
    I’m just concerned about the screen size: hope there will be an 11-inch version in the future.

  3. Please note, these specs are exactly what was revealed in HP internal documents before the project was shelved and/or delayed. The catalog entry is a new find, but the entry doesn’t share anything new, except possibly that it will come with headphones.
