HP Slate Gets Pictured Again, WebOS-Based Tablet Called the PalmPad During Analyst Call

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Earlier today a few photos of the upcoming HP Slate have leaked out again. This tablet is going to be running Windows 7 (clearly), so you'll be able to take advantage of the infinite apps that you can find all over the web. The display is said to measure in at 8.9-inches with a 1,024 x 600 resolution. Of course, Windows 7 isn't the best tablet OS out there but it should be worth it if the price is right. Apparently, this could be launching in the next month or so. Check out the Slash Gear link below for a few more photos.

Update: According to Engadget, during an analyst call earlier today, HP's Todd Bradley actually mentioned that their company will have "a WebOS-powered PalmPad that will be set for release in early 2011." Those were his exact words. This is another HP tablet that they're working on internally but don't be surprised if they decide to change the name before it gets released. Hopefully we'll see it at CES in early 2011.

Lenovo Announces the ThinkPad Edge 11 Notebook With AMD and Intel Models

Labels: , , ,

Lenovo has just shown off their latest (don't call it a netbook) 11-inch notebook. This one's the ThinkPad Edge 11 which crams AMD single / dual-core CPU options and even Intel Core i3 / i5 options in the small body. The AMD model will start at the equivalent of $450, while the Intel model will start at around $550. The sad part about this news is that this notebook isn't going to be hitting North America because we already have the X100e.

Check out Engadget's review for it in another post. The base model they reviewed sports an Intel Core i3-U380 1.33GHz ULV CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a 250GB HDD in case you wanted to know.
