HP back to tablet buiness: HP Slate 2


HP team realised that it was a bad suggestion to quit from the PC business, so last week they decided to come back in the table world. So what is the new thing about. Yes a tablet. So what are the new feature of it.
Is it an Android based ? No its not , its a Windows 7-based Slate 2.
8.9-inch capacitive multi-touch screen,
Intel Atom Z670 CPU,
32 GB of momory,
3-megapixel back camera, 

A front-facing VGA camera for video chats and calls.Yes it has HP’s Swype technology for easier text entry.
So what I feel that , they have to think twice about the OS as Windows 7 was never a great OS for tablets and they too accepted that . So hope they may target for Windows 8 for tablet release, which is expected for next year release.
What is the price of this ? HP Slate 2 starts at $699 and is expected to be available later this month. Are they assuming that they can stay with Apple iPad or Samsungs Tab family ?
