Apple iPad vs HP Slate comparison
With the release of a new video demonstrating the formidable capabilities of the upcoming HP Slate tablet PC, followed by the leak of a document comparing the specs of the HP Slate and the Apple iPad head-to-head, battle lines are being drawn and passionate opinions expressed regarding which is superior. The problem is that the comparison is an apples to oranges one between devices with different target audiences and intended purposes.
It is understandable to some degree because so much has been written (much of it by me) about the pros and cons of the Apple iPad as a business tool. Business professional purists are quick to condemn such claims, though, and equally quick to point out the many ways that the HP Slate, or any tablet not from Apple, is a real computer–more suited for grown-up business tasks. The thing is that both can be right and the two points of view are not mutually exclusive.
Either way, both the Apple iPad and the HP Slate appear to be very capable devices that deliver what their target audiences are looking for. Just stop trying to compare them head-to-head because there is no “right” answer.
