Just when Apple is preparing for a grand launch of
iBad iPad on April 3rd, HP and Adobe have released a video demo of HP Slate running Adobe Flash, like ability to play videos anywhere on the internet (and not just Youtube), playing flash games etc.
Also, Flash will allow users to access other content-rich applications on the web such as magazines and casual Flash-based games. Not just Flash, Adobe demonstrated HP Slate’s ability to run Adobe Air applications as well. This is a clear signs of Adobe moving away from Apple-Flash fiasco and investing more time and energy towards other tablet computers.
HP is yet to disclose the pricing, availability and specification details of HP Slate, but these videos add enough traction to the growing interest of this tablet which is one of the very few ones which can run Windows 7 OS.

HP Slate Commercial
The HP Slate commercial looks ridiculously similar to the iPad ad which ran during Oscars 2010. The demo features just the screen and a pair of hands swiping and pressing the Slate’s screen.
What do you think? Does the HP Slate seem like a much better alternative to the Apple iPad?
