HP Unveils Business Tablet PC

The newest iPad challenger, the HP Slate 500, runs a 1.86 GHz Intel Atom Z540 processor and includes a hefty 2GB of RAM.

Challenging the iPad's multimedia offering, the HP Slate 500's two cameras include an outward-facing 3 megapixel camera, and a VGA Webcam on the front of the device designed for applications such as video conferencing.

HP has released the latest entry into a fast-expanding tablet market, unveiling this week the Slate 500, a Windows 7-powered mobile device geared expressly for business users.

The long-awaited device, HP's first tablet computer, is available for purchase immediately through the company's website and its distribution partners, retailing for $799. On Friday morning HP's website listed a ship date of Nov. 12.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer first showed off a prototype of an HP tablet powered by the software giant's forthcoming Windows 7 OS back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but that consumer-oriented device morphed in the time since into a business-oriented model.
