Thanks to a leaked slide from HP, we now know the company is working on a Windows 8-based tablet that is destined to be thinner than the benchmark: Apple's iPad. HP Slate 8 will sport a 10.1-inch display and have battery life hovering in the 8-10 hour range according to a "trusted" source of Neowin.

The slide pushes the Slate 8 as a business device, where its specifications point to it being capable of multi-touch or digital pen input, as well as enterprise level docking. Another bit teased is "outdoor viewing option", which has me scratching my head. HP lists its features of "Portable" as the 8-10 hour battery life, 9.2mm thin and weighs in at only 0.68kg.

 

HP CEO, Meg Whitman said earlier this year that HP would release x86-based PCs by the end of this year, with the Slate 8 being a possible candidate. No more information is available, but it's great that these Windows 8 tablet leaks are happening, it's only going to amp the competition up, significantly. I expect more and more leaks leading up to, and after Computex.
