First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
HP Windows 7 Slate video surfaces

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.
