HP Slate Tablet Specs: Do The Pro’s Outweigh The Con’s?

Yesterday we posted an article which confirmed the upcoming HP Slate’s pricing and specifications, and I must say that most of the specifications were pretty impressive.

As the Apple iPad has in some respects set the standard for future tablets the pro’s and con’s will be determined by how the two devices compare, at a glance it looks as if there are more pro’s then there are con’s.

The Intel Atom Menlow Z530 (1.6GHz) processor is a huge pro when compared to the iPad’s 1GHz Apple A4 chip, also the Slate’s ability to playback 1080p HD video is great compared to the iPad’s 720p capabilities.

Other pro’s include the Slate’s wide range of ports, these ports include plenty of memory card formats along with a single USB 2.0 port. Also worth a mention is the VGA webcam, 5 megapixel camera and pen support.

There are however a few con’s, the battery life is not as great as the iPad’s nor is the screen resolution, also the Slate will apparently not feature 802.11n connectivity, but will cost more than the lowest-priced iPad.

Do you think the pro’s outweigh the con’s?
