HP's iPad competitor will have two video cameras

Posted: 12:44 PM ET

In an apparent attempt to steal some buzz from Apple's brand-new iPad, Hewlett-Packard on Monday released some details about its "slate" computer, which will go on sale later this year.

A new blog post and video highlight some apparent differences between the two gadgets: The HP device has two video cameras, a USB connection and also support for Flash animations.

The lack of those features has been a consistent gripe among iPad reviewers.

Like the iPad, the HP gadget is a medium-sized, touch-screen device that acts kind of like a laptop without a keyboard, and kind of like a stretched-out smartphone. In a blog post, HP vice president and chief technology officer Phil McKinney says the Slate will let people create content as well as consume it:

Think about the last time you chatted with friends over Skype on your notebook. Or uploaded a picture from your mobile phone to Facebook or Flickr. How about the last time you viewed images or video from an SD card or a USB device. We know that you expect to be able to capture and share digital content on your mobile devices. And the HP slate device excels there.

A short YouTube video posted by HP indicates the tablet-like device will have two video cameras - one for taking images of the environment, and one that captures the person holding the device. That second camera could be used in live video chats, for example.

HP briefly showed off the device at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, and has since been leaking videos with new details about how it will work. There's no word yet on how much HP's device will cost, or exactly when it will be released.

Cuando se elimina una capa de material en uno de los lados de una placa plana que contiene tensiones residuales, se altera el equilibrio de tensiones en la placa de manera que ésta de deforma tras liberar las fuerzas de amarre para alcanzar un nuevo estado de equilibrio (figura 3). La curvatura alcanzada por la placa depende de la distribución de tensiones originalmente presente en la capa eliminada, así como de las propiedades elásticas de del resto de la placa.

I haven¦t checked in here for a while as I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Together with every thing which appears to be developing within this particular subject matter, a significant percentage of opinions tend to be somewhat stimulating. Nonetheless, I am sorry, because I do not give credence to your whole suggestion, all be it stimulating none the less. It looks to everybody that your commentary are actually not completely rationalized and in fact you are yourself not even wholly convinced of the point. In any case I did take pleasure in looking at it.

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Cheers!

It’s really a nice and helpful piece of info. I am happy that you simply shared this useful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for these guidelines. One thing I should also believe is always that credit cards featuring a 0 interest often lure consumers with zero rate, instant authorization and easy internet balance transfers, however beware of the main factor that is going to void your current 0 easy street annual percentage rate and also throw one out into the bad house rapid.
