I can't understand why people are so taken in by the hype in the first place.

Because a part of each of us enjoys the thrill of it, I suppose, the feeling that outrageous expectations might be fulfilled - hype is its own kind of insubstantial pleasure...

True enough. The child-like side wins over the rational, in these cases.

A lovely way to phrase it. But the best ever feeling is being bowled up completely unexpectedly.

HP mimics, mocks iPad with Slate demo video

While we still don't know when Hewlett-Packard's Slate will be for sale, thanks to two new videos, we certainly know more about how HP feels about Apple.

Just hours after Apple revealed the first iPad commercial, HP has followed with a pair of video demos showing off its own touch-screen tablet, the Slate.

The first video, embedded below, feels remarkably similar to Apple's own ad, just sped up and with backing music that's a little harder-edged than Apple's usual choice of cutesy indie pop. Like the iPad as well as iPhone and iPod Touch ads, the demo features just the screen and a pair of hands swiping and pressing the Slate's screen. The similarity between the demo videos of the two competing devices is made easier considering that the iPad and the Slate also look a lot alike. Check out the video, and you can judge for yourself:

Picked one up in Boston yesterday. 64Gb. Watched lots of vids on the way home. Very good battery life. Didn't even drop below 50% after a 5 hour flight!

Its not that bad an idea as a slate was what one used in school to write on before paper was introduced... ask Termi, he must still remember them

I'm still 50/50. Every time I think I want one I'm reminded of how hard it is to get stuff like videos onto the device. Hopefully a better alternative will surface over the coming months that plays divx files automatically.

Though I'd say it would be excellent to use for surfing the web in the evenings or at the table during meal times.

Apparently its a hit and they are projecting 5M sales and there are other devices on the way from other manufacturers. IT may herald a time of another new media device.

Hmm only 10 hours battery life.Awkward to type horizontal and when you turn it on it's side it is then difficult to see.

HP's iPad competitor will have two video cameras

In an apparent attempt to steal some buzz from Apple's brand-new iPad, Hewlett-Packard on Monday released some details about its "slate" computer, which will go on sale later this year.

A new blog post and video highlight some apparent differences between the two gadgets: The HP device has two video cameras, a USB connection and also support for Flash animations.

The lack of those features has been a consistent gripe among iPad reviewers.

Like the iPad, the HP gadget is a medium-sized, touch-screen device that acts kind of like a laptop without a keyboard, and kind of like a stretched-out smartphone. In a blog post, HP vice president and chief technology officer Phil McKinney says the Slate will let people create content as well as consume it:

Think about the last time you chatted with friends over Skype on your notebook. Or uploaded a picture from your mobile phone to Facebook or Flickr. How about the last time you viewed images or video from an SD card or a USB device. We know that you expect to be able to capture and share digital content on your mobile devices. And the HP slate device excels there.

A short YouTube video ( AeDalRBjyJo ) posted by HP indicates the tablet-like device will have two video cameras - one for taking images of the environment, and one that captures the person holding the device. That second camera could be used in live video chats, for example.

HP briefly showed off the device at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, and has since been leaking videos with new details about how it will work. There's no word yet on how much HP's device will cost, or exactly when it will be released.
