HP launched its first PC tablet, Slate 500

Hewlett-Packard, the biggest computer manufacturer in the world, had launched its first PC tablet, Slate 500, at a price of $799 and based on Microsoft Windows 7, for the corporate sector.

The device produced by HP is based on the same version of Windows 7 used by many companies on their standard PCs.

Slate 500 has a higher price than the products of other companies such as iPad, Apple, which kicked off the frenzy Tablet PC earlier this year.

HP comes with a multi-touch screen of 8.9 inches, a digital pen and has a storage capacity of 64 GB of data. The battery has a range of five hours.

The device is not equipped with a cellular connection to high speed like iPad, Galaxy Tab, the Samsung, and Streak.

HP plans to launch a new PC tablet next year, more oriented towards media, which will look very different from Slate.
