Does it have a chance?

The MasterPad Windows 7 slate is significant for two reasons. First, it has managed to outsell the Apple tablet in Germany. Second, it appears to confirm rumors from certain Tech luminary as to the true purpose of tablet computers.

In almost every category of specs, the MasterPad exceeds Apple's first stab at the form factor. It has an 11.6" capacitive touchscreen, 32-64 GB SSD, Intel Atom N450 processor and full 1080p display thanks to either a GMA 500 chip or a Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator. The MasterPad also has Bluetooth, WiFi, an accelerometer, SIM slot, SD reader and HDMI-out.

It goes on sale in Europe and the US in October. The battery life is a disappointing 4-5 hours, which goes along with a price of around $700 for the 32 GB version. Something tells me longevity is going to keep this thing from ever catching the Apple juggernaut.
