HP tablet could sync iPad
HP today teased its slate by posting another video for the device. The new clip focuses on expansion and points out that the slate has true USB ports and even shows an Apple device syncing with iTunes running on the tablet. Theoretically, an iPad could actually sync with the HP hardware.
The teaser also shows an SD card slot, contrasting against the iPad's necessity for an adapter, and a cradle that could be used to prop up the slate while it outputs video to a TV. No details have been given as to performance, although the use of Windows 7 will likely require an Intel Atom chip.
HP has still said nothing about the ship date or the price, but Spanish executives have already claimed it would arrive in June and may cost more than the iPad, although European pricing may not directly mirror that in the US.
