Hanvon Windows 7 Tablet vs iPad

The Hanvon Windows 7 tablet is a new competitor to Apple’s iPad and will hopefully arrive till the end of this year. Until then you can whatch this video where it competes directly with the iPad. And the Hanvon kinda busts the iPad and it might become even better when it becomes available.

The iPad clearly wins when it comes to zooming in the browser. Typing on the keyboard, and web page rendering is slightly faster than on the Hanvon, but the Hanvon comes really close. Not much difference there. But with Windows 7 you’ve got Adobe Flash support of course. So your YouTube experience is infinite better than he would get on the iPad.

Other than the restricted iPad the Hanvon Windows 7 tablet comes with an quite open operating system and is packed with a front-facing camera, three USB 2.0 ports, a SD card slot, and even a trackpad.

But see for yourself:

HP Slate dead?

Rumors say, that HP had stopped development of the Slate and killed off the project entirely. According to the rumors, HP isn’t thrilled with Windows 7’s performance on the tablet. Something I can not believe in, since netbook users know, that Win7 does perform well on low-end hardware.

The Slate was officially unveiled in January had a rumored price of $549, and was supposedly launching in June.

So far there isn’t an official statement from HP.
