HP Slate To Launch For $549? Specs Compared To the iPad

Labels: , ,

This new chart (above) clearly shows off the differences between the HP Slate and the Apple iPad. The chart is pretty self-explanatory, and it spills out all of the specs of the HP Slate. It's rumoured to be launching at $549, so it's only the 16GB WiFi-only iPad that can compete with the price. The $549 model will reportedly feature an Intel Atom Z530 1.6GHz CPU, integrated Intel UMA graphics, 32GB of flash storage, 1GB of RAM, an SDHC card slot, a USB 2.0 port, two cameras (front-facing and on the back), a SIM card slot, audio jacks, an HDMI output, and a 5-hour battery life. The more expensive $599 model will feature 64GB of flash storage. Now that we know the specs let's see how it works in the real world.

Labels: , ,

If you're looking to jump onto the Bada bandwagon but you think the Samsung Wave is a bit too expensive then you're in luck. Samsung's next 4 Bada phones will get cheaper and cheaper. The next one will be a full touchscreen phone, while the next two will sport slide-out QWERTY keyboards, and the last one will be another touchscreen phone.
