The long-awaited HP Slate unveiled

Ah, the HP Slate. You wowed the crowds at CES in Spring, you took a little steam out of the iPad's launch. And then you vanished.

And now, you're back! You're still running Windows, but perhaps as a result, you're only being marketed at business. You're slim, and quite sexy. But you seem a little slow-running.

Engadget has a nifty video of a Slate being unboxed and fiddled with a bit. We think it's a nifty piece of kit, but, to be honest, Windows 7 doesn't handle touch much better than Windows XP did.

But this is just a prototype. We'll see how the Slate fares when it's released for reals in a few months.
