The HP Slate had created a flurry of speculation and unbridled interest when it was first announced. It was not only die hard HP fans, but also those who are not known to be keen followers of Apple and its iPad that had pinned their hopes on the Slate to turn the tide in their favor and not let the iPad walk away with the most-sought-after-tablet crown. But then, HP had other ideas and while the Slate did become a reality, it was meant to be used only in the enterprise sector.
And while we already know the Slate has launched and pre-orders have already started to be shipped, there is news right now from an early buyer having received notification stating his Slate is now being shipped. It won’t be too late before the device eventually makes it to his home.
