Despite the fact that it wasn’t the most popular tablet on the market HP’s TouchPad did get a ton of air time when the company dropped its price tag down to just $99.99. Of course, this price tag was due to the tablet’s demise but you most likely already know that. What you may not have known is that HP came forth to debut a tablet long before the TouchPad was even announced dubbed the HP Slate.This Windows powered tablet never hit the market for normal consumer consumption with the company instead targeting it towards the business world. Well, it seems that the tablet’s first iteration was successful enough because HP has announced today that they will be following the device up with a second generation appropriately dubbed the Slate 2.
This tablet will be made available sometime this month starting at $699 featuring an 8.9-inch display with 1024 x 600 resolution, Intel Atom processor, 64GB of SSD storage and of course Windows 7.
Will this tablet fare well on the market? We haven’t a clue but stay tuned as we’ll keep you posted.
