The iPad isn't the only hot tablet out ther. HP's Windows 7-based Slate is pretty damn sexy, and this latest video from HP's website proves it. I don't care how big of an Apple fanatic you are; that video has to make you drool at least a little bit. Especially since the main purpose of this video seems to be to highlight all the things the Slate can do that the iPad cannot.

First off, we see the webcam in action. It's pretty clear from this brief glimpse that the Slate will be a kickass AR platform. We also see the iPad docking with (what looks to be) an iPhone or iPod, and accessing iTunes. Video conferencing gets shown off, and HP makes a big point of letting us see a 16GB SD card being slotted in to the slate.

Is this video just a highly airbrushed marketing ploy? Yes. Does it work? It did on me. I am now feverishly anticipating this iPad competitor. Hopefully the rumors of a June launch will prove to be accurate.
