One's big, one's small and the other's a wristwatch? That's what Phil McKinney, CTO of HP's Personal Systems Group, seems to be holding in his hand. Could it be a legit webOS tablet? Pre 2? Or a *gasp* webOSwatch?
Ever since HP's acquisition of Palm was announced in April, everyone's been clamoring about a webOS tablet. It could be very cool! And according to Engadget, Personal Systems Group VP Todd Bradley told HP employees that just such a product, codenamed Hurricane, was on track for the first quarter of 2011. Could the …
Some interesting news from Fortune's Brainstorm conference: HP VP Todd Bradley says that the company's Windows 7-running tablet, the one Steve Ballmer showed off at CES, will not be a consumer-focused product. But webOS 2.0 is arriving later this year.
Several of the HP Slate 500's leaked specs have been confirmed today, including that it will run Windows 7 Premium, sports an 8.9-inch touch screen, has a 1.6 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, and that it has two cameras—video and still.

HP is killing its Windows 7 "slate" tablet project, says TechCrunch, citing a source "briefed on the matter."
HP's rolled out another promotional video for their Slate, again—not surprisingly—highlighting its advantages over the iPad. Like a camera! A built-in USB port and SD slot! And... iTunes. Well, we'll call that last one a wash.

Well, they've succeeded in coming in at under $630, but even so the €400 ($542) price rumored for the Slate is still too much when it's coming up against the $499 iPad.
Adobe's got a video out that proves the HP Slate can run Flash and AIR just fine, thankyouverymuch. To which we say: no kidding! It's a Windows 7 device. What's of some concern might be HP's own marketing clip:
Tablets today are thought to be made in one of two ways: Upsizing a smartphone or downsizing a laptop. Many of these new tablets are decent, but both methods render something less than the perfect tablet.
Everybody's talking about tablets, especially those single-pane capacitive touchscreen ones more specifically known as "slates." The iPad is the biggest newsmaker, but there are lots headed our way (most with built-in webcams). Here's how they measure up, spec-wise:
HP just popped a video of CTO Phil McKinney demonstrating the "slate" we showed you first at CES 2010. McKinney affirms that this is not just some will-o-the-wisp, but in doing so, might've taken away some of its allure.
