HP To Launch Slate 500 For Business

After much waiting, HP finally announces that it is launching the Slate 500... for enterprise.  It will run Windows 7 Professional so this is not a loss for consumers.  In addition, the price tag will be a staggering $800.  The HP Slate will sport an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display. It will sport a 1.86GHz Intel Atom Z540 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 64GB solid state disk. It will also have a 3MP camera on the back and a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.

Included with the tablet will be a docking station and case.  $799 is high for the consumer market but maybe fine for the enterprise market.  The consumer market will fortunately see a WebOs version sometime next year.

Its hard to make an argument for a Windows 7-based tablet.  What are your thoughts??
