A recently discovered listing on the HP website has restarted the rumor mill for the HP Slate, the PC maker’s supposed Windows 7 tablet.
PCWorld has uncovered a now-removed webpage on HP’s website that lists not one, but eight different version of the “HP Slate 500″ tablet. Energy Star also lists the product on its website.
Here are the specs, according to HP and Energy Star’s websites:
- Runs Windows 7 Premium
- 8.9″ screen
- Two cameras: video camera for web conferencing and a still camera
- Works with a stylus/pen interface
- 1 GB of RAM (for reference, the iPad has 256 MB)
These numbers fit a previous HP Slate leak from April. In fact, they’re identical. Despite this recent discovery though, we doubt a Windows 7-based HP tablet is coming anytime soon.
