HP Windows 7 Slate video surfaces

Real? Fake? A video on YouTube shows a purported Windows-based HP tablet in action.

Ah yes, the on-again, off-again HP Slate running Windows 7. Before CES, it was a buzz-worthy expected product, but its brief appearance in Steve Ballmer's CES keynote left some rather disappointed. But a new video making the rounds on YouTube shows what might be the HP Slate in action, running Windows 7.

The video (below) shows both a look at the supposed Slate's hardware, and what it's like running Windows 7. The tablet looks to have something around a 7-inch screen, judging from its size relative to the narrator's hand. It's hard to say for sure if the video is legit, but at first glance it seems convincing.

Keep in mind that, although it looked for a while that HP's Windows-based slate was dead--especially given that HP bought Palm--the company confirmed last month that it's working on both Windows-based and WebOS-based tablets.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
