HP Slate Slated
HP's Windows 7 slate is finally out. Originally aimed at a broad market, the $800 slate is now designed for verticals such as health care. This is similar to how mini-notebooks, predecessors to today's netbooks, were sold. The pound-and-a-half device can take input by pen or through gestures.
This could actually be a pretty cool VAR play, as resellers could build custom apps using common Redmond developer tools such as Visual Studio.
