PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Engadget has managed to get hold of a very interesting internal presentation slide from Hewlett-Packard which compares Apple's iPad to HP's very own Slate. Since we didn't yet know anything about the Slate's specifications, this one is pretty revealing. While that's interesting in and of itself, the slide is also interesting in that it illustrates so well what sets Apple apart from companies like HP.

Tablets are all hype at the moment.. the ipad is a preliminary product purely aimed at suckers... anyone of those 300,000 people who purchased one have essentially bought into an already obsolete product simply by the fact that it doesn't have a front facing camera and all the other parts that users expected would be included. So in 12 months when the new version comes out the same hype will be done but the competition from android and meegoo will be all over the place... I see these atom processor based systems as an intel buy in rather than a great product.. I mean 4 hours battery life? wtf.. probably actually end up being more like 2.5-3 if we go by what HP normally states for their laptops.. "9 cell battery 12 hours.." bought it.. more like "9 cell battery 8 hours"..

I can see a load of room for improvement and I really hope that there is more competition on alternative architectures.. we really need more competition in the processor market simply to keep intel 'nice'...
