HP Slate coming in June for $546

The HP Slate made its first appearance at CES this year, and it looks like today we finally have a release timeframe and price for the device.  According to Clipset, a Spanish blog that appears to have access to HP and the Slate, the device will be released in June of this year for €400, or about $546.  Clipset also reports that HP has confirmed that the Slate will rock an Intel Atom and feature Windows 7, a webcam, Adobe Flash support and a memory card reader.

It’s peculiar that HP would decide to release this information through a relatively unknown Spanish blog.  However, Clipset does appear to have the best access to the Slate that we’ve seen so far.

The Slate’s release will take place shortly after the release of Apple’s iPad.  Anyone cancelling their pre-orders?

Hopefully HP will release a bit more information on the Slate at the launch date for the device nears.  The fingerprint-smudged pictures from Clipset don’t do the device justice.

i-Mobile Technology passed this Atom-powered tablet, called the Mobile Tablet PC, through the FCC today.  The device has a 8.9” touch screen LCD, 16 GB SSD, 1 GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth, 1.3 MP web cam and optional GPS.

Measuring 9.5” x 7.5” and just an inch thick, this tablet packs a decent suite of features into a compact form factor.  The design of the Mobile Tablet PC is a bit outdated, however.

There’s no word on pricing or availability for the Mobile Tablet PC, and you probably won’t see this device in stores since i-Mobile’s products are targeted at the commercial market.
