HP Slate, the seemingly superior cousin of the much hyped iPad is rumored to launch in June. ClipSet, a popular Spanish website has revealed from its sources that the tablet devices from Hewlett Packard may have a late summer launch in Europe at a price of €400 ($546).
That does not necessarily mean that price will be higher than iPad. It is possible that the price of HP Slate is synced to iPad’s $499 starting price when it launches in US and to the corresponding price points in other markets. However considering superior hardware in the form of Atom CPU, USB connectivity, memory card reader, a back mounted webcam and support for Adobe Flash, it is also possible that HP launches the device at a premium.
Can’t wait to get hold of this one. Why bother about the iPad![via Engadget]
