CTL 2goPad SL10 Pro Offers HP Slate 500 Some Competition

By  |  8 Comments


The CTL 2goPad SL10 is a full Windows 7 slate that utilizes an Intel Atom processor and a capacitive 10-inch touchscreen display. Liliputing notes that “it’s one of the better Atom-powered Windows tablets I’ve used,” although it can be sluggish at times. The base model sells for $549 while the Pro model sells for $799, about the cost of the HP Slate 500, but adds in a number of accessories and 3G mobile broadband, a feature that the HP tablet lacks.

For the Pro model, you’ll get Windows 7 Professional as well as a capacitive touchscreen stylus, which isn’t as accurate as the active digitizer pen utilized on the HP Slate, but you’ll also get a Bluetooth keyboard as well as integrated 3G. Also, the Pro model will come with 2 GB RAM and a 64 GB SSD drive.

Connectivity to the device could be done via WiFi b/g/n, or through the 2 USB ports or SD card reader.

    No active digitizer? Not a competitor for the HP 500.

      I agree.

      Only one camera as well.

      HP 500 includes dock.

    That was my instant reaction as well – no active digitizer, not a competitor in the least!

    I have a slate and can confirm that without the digital pen … no competition.

    The other comments hit the nail on the head.

    I keep on asking, ‘Why hasn’t the likes of Toshiba come up with an active digitiser slate?” They have the expertise, the reputation and a corporate presence, or haven’t they?

    My dream: good notebooks at home/aprtment and the office, slate in between, synchronise with both via Dropbox and/or Windows Live, slate sits next to me at work and play.

    No active digitizer = fail for Windows 7. There is NO justification for using Windows 7 as teh OS if you are not going to have accurate pen input.
