Reflecting on the HP Slate not being dead

HPSlateHighVoltageThumb

Oh, HP Slate or, as you’re properly called, HP Slate 500 Tablet PC. Been a long road, more than ten months since you graced the stage at CES2010. In that time, you’ve died and come back more times than Michael Myers, providing me with quality distractions along the way. Here, I present the last of […]

Even Ars Technica doesn’t know Windows tablets

hp_slate_1

I am disappointed with Ars Technica this morning. In fairness, that’s largely because I hold the site in such high regard. As a “long form” blog, they typically deliver information that is well-researched and informed. Their analysis on the HP Slate, however, misses on a few details.

I had no idea the Ctrl-Alt-Del button was so ridiculous

Windows7LockScreen

Well, this is interesting. Two days after I praise Hugo Ortega for including a dedicated Ctrl-Alt-Del button on his TEGA V2, a sign of his experience with Tablet PCs and UMPCs, every hater on the Internet is bashing the HP Slate for having a dedicated Ctrl-Alt-Del button.

Rumor: HP WebOS tablet/Hurricane/PalmPad early 2011

HPSlateBigJakeThumb

They say you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket. Well, according to the latest rumor, HP is taking that idiom and running with it for tablets with rumors of the Windows 7 HP Slate 500 headed to enterprise, the Android-based eStation Zeen for printers, and now the return of the WebOS-based HP Hurricane, […]

HP eStation Zeen: Slate? Android tablet? Or something more?

HPSlateSwearThoughtYouWereDeadThumb

Finally! Another excuse to post a new “I thought you were dead” graphic for the HP Slate, now suspected of being a new tablet called the eStation Zeen that’s passed FCC certification. Or is the Zeen really a different Android-based tablet for eReading? Or is it something else, something… greater?
