HP has announced their new, soon to be released tablet called the HP Slate. It has apparently been shifted from a consumer device to one aimed firmly at the enterprise.

It’s got some impressive hardware specs, not least its 2GB of RAM, front and back cameras, and an active digitizer. Here’s what makes it an entirely uninteresting rival in my book – it runs Windows 7.

I still think Windows is in need of some slimming down on the desktop, no way I want to see it on a mobile device. I think Apple’s whole ‘Back to the Mac’ concept, with elements of iOS flowing back up to their desktop OS makes much more sense than trying to cram any full-blown desktop OS (and especially Windows) into mobile devices.
