We still know very little about the upcoming HP slate. It's going to be extremely slender, and it has a design form at least as good as the iPad. While we know roughly what the Slate will be able to do (watch movies, read magazines, surf...) we don't know much about its hardware. Now a new demo video (via Engadget) has emerged, giving us a better idea of how this gadget will work.
First off, the UI looks surprisingly good. Windows 7 is still the underlying OS, but the Slate has a UI design all its own. The most exciting thing about this tablet still has to be the fact that AdobeFlash will be working on it at launch. The Slate's onscreen keyboard looks a little lame, but there has yet to be a tablet made with a good keyboard.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
