Review HP Slate 2 Wi-Fi + 3G Tablet


A test of patience. With the Slate 2, the manufacture HP targets

Good manufacturing; Passive cooling; Fast SSD; x86 Platform; Integrated UMTS; Diverse security features

Quite bulky and heavy; Very low performance abilities; Dark display with TN panel; High generation of heat; Windows 7 for tablet use only recommendable in limited circumstances

With comparable equipment, but somewhat larger 10-inch displays, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 and the Dell Latitude ST compete for the favor of the business shoppers. Other Windows tablets like the Acer Iconia W500 aim more for the private sector.

HP Slate 2 vs. Samsung Series 7 Slate


Companies that need Windows-7-based tablets have two very different choices in these new devices

Good performance, bright screen, reasonable battery life

Expensive, heavy for a tablet, dock wobbles slightly

These are two very different tablets. The HP Slate 2 is lightweight and a good traveler, but it has barely enough processor power and memory to handle Windows, and the 8.9-in. display can feel cramped.

HP's Slate 2 is a neat and compact 8.9in. Windows 7 tablet, although it's short of CPU muscle and has limited internal storage capacity. We'd prefer mobile broadband as standard rather than optional, while battery life could be better.

Compact, with robust build quality ; Touchscreen navigation via finger or optional stylus ; Optional docking stand

Limited internal storage ; Mobile broadband is optional rather than standard ; Battery life could be better ; Processor is underpowered for some tasks ; No Ethernet port on tablet or optional docking stand ; No keyboard dock

With the iPad well established in businesses and Android tablets such as the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime offering a solid and workable keyboard dock, you might wonder whether the good old Windows-based tablet has any traction at all for modern...

Small and portable, runs fullWindows applications, dock offers additional ports including HDMI, solid build

Short on internal memory, no Ethernet connectivity, Atom processor is a little sluggish

The HP Slate 2 is a solidly built 8.9in Windows tablet responsive to both touch and stylus input. Business customers may be drawn by its small size and portability, plus support for full Windows applications. Modest specifications mean it won't suit...

Smaller than it looks in photos and a great deal of the memory is already used up straight out of the box. The touch screen is slow to respond and resolution could be improved. Still way better than an iPad however.
