This is a bit like a battle to end all battles, in one corner is the recently released Apple iPad, while in the other is the soon to be launched HP Slate.
Which device would win in an all out face to face battle?
It seems that someone has already done the homework on the two devices and if we are to believe in the figures given them it would seem that, the HP Slate should be coming out as a clear winner.
Features of the 8.9 inch HP Slate:
8.9 inch 1024 x 600 capacitive multitouch display, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor with UMA graphics and an accelerator for 1080p video playback (we’re assuming it’s a Broadcom Crystal HD chip), 32GB of flash storage and 1GB of non-upgradeable RAM. There’s also a $599 version with 64GB of storage, and both models will have a five-hour battery, an SDHC slot, two camera, a USB port, a SIM card slot for the optional 3G modem, and a dock connector for power, audio, and HDMI out
