The HP Slate is currently the hottest possible iPad contender from the Windows camp. HP has released yesterday a new promo video highlighting several features of the Slate that the iPad is missing.
These features include 2 cameras, and SD card slot. The 3MP forward facing camera is ideal for augmented reality apps as long as the 1.6Ghz Intel Atom CPU and the Intel UMA can handle it.
In leaked HP slide published on Engadget the specifications of the HP Slate are unveiled. The slide looks real, but these days you never know.

According to this slide the HP Slate would feature a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 1GB RAM, 5 hour battery, 32GB or 64GB Flash, Windows 7 Home Premium with HP Touch UI, 802.11g, HDMI out, SD cards slot (up to 128GB), USB port, and 8.9 inch WSVGA (1024x600px) resolution.
The pricing of the HP is also stated with starting at $549 for the 32GB model. This would be indeed less than the 32GB iPad model is selling for.

The battery life of the iPad is twice as long, which is a big argument for the iPad. The final verdict on whether the HP Slate can tackle the iPad can only be handed down when we see how easy to use and fast it is.
