Loathe Apple iPad? HP Slate Coming With Atom And Flash Soon, Tablet War Too

ONE-XL-icon Want a tablet device like iPad but be hesitant for Flash NOT in the iPad ?  Don’t worry now, there are a number of Windows-based offerings coming soon. Spanish technology blog Clipset.net is claiming to have tested the HP Slate, which shares many characteristics with the iPad, revealing that it is set to be launched in June and will be priced at approximately €400(or about $541), and then be available for sale in Europe by September.

HP’s device is confirmed to feature an Intel Atom processor, USB connectivity, a memory card reader, a back-mounted webcam, Flash support, and runs Windows 7 — basically it has all the things people wanted the iPad to have.

I think just the fact that it runs windows 7 and flash support will be the best reason for many people to buy this instead of the Apple iPad or iPhone.

Some days before, we discussed Will HTML5 + CSS + JavaScript Really Be Flash And Silverlight Killer? , Hmm…, on the tablet market, will HP Slate surely become a great Apple iPad killer?  The answer is NO. In fact, I think most people like me, not an Apple-negative, also not an Adobe Flash negative. The buyers will buy what they need.

Apple can have ITS firmware running on ITS device of choice,  and most programs like openoffice, antivir (antivirus freeware), msn, webcam flash games can be run on windows-based device. *You’ll see that the HP Slate runs Flash from the video below. :)

Apple’s iPad is set to start shipping in the USA on April 3. WiFi and 3G versions of the device are also expected to become available in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and Switzerland in late April, with iPads going on sale in additional countries later during the year.

Anyway, in snacks, there are not only KFC but also Mcdonalds, the same with HP Slate and Apple iPad, HP Slate can undercut the price of iPad, of course the opposite is true.
