HP Slate Knocked-Off Before Its Even Released

Check out photo of a Chinese knock-off of the yet to be released HP Slate.
This comes on the heels of the Slate’s leaked spec’s.

Which are as follows:
  • Display: 8.9-inch WSVGA 1,024 x 600 widescreen display
  • Multitouch support, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, pen/digitizer support
  • Processor: 1.6GHz Intel Atom Menlow Z530 CPU
  • Graphics: Intel UMA with full HD 1080p playback support Storage: 32/64GB flash, upgradeable via SD card reader
  • RAM: 1GB DDR2 non-upgradeable
  • Connectivity: 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, 3G (optional)
  • WWAN, GPS,
  • Ports: SD/SDHC/SDXC, up to 128GB, 3.5mm headphone jack, 1 USB 2.0 port, dock connector (HDMI out and conventional SIM card support)
  • Software: Windows 7 Home Premium with HP touch-optimize UI
  • Dimensions: 9.21 x 5.70 x 0.57 inch and 1.49 pounds
  • Battery: 2-cell 30WHr polymer capable of more than 5 hours of life
  • Camera: front-facing VGA and 3-megapixel webcam
And will cost just under $600 bucks! It is clear to me in the image below that HP is gunning for the ipad. I believe that the Slate has the advantage since it will be running Windows 7 and not a Cell Phone OS and therefore will offer more diversity in the applications you will be able to use the slate for. Tell me what you think of the HP Slate or ipad.

Tell me what you think? What is all the fuss about PalmPad find out on an up and coming post soon!
