— Original Report —

An HP Windows 7 tablet prototype has been spotted on YouTube in a four-minute clip dubbed “Hp Slate review.”

The user, who goes by the YouTube handle “x313xkillax” claims he received an advanced unit of a tablet device labeled “Property of HP – Prototype – Not For Sale,” sporting a large HP symbol in the center and what the user describes as a “nice rubbery plastic texture.”

The tablet PC features a 3MP rear digital camera as well as a front-facing camera, SD card slot, on-board mic, USB jack, home key, and ctrl-alt-dlt key. The user describes the tablet as thin and “lighter than the iPad.”

From the review, the Windows 7 load time seemed approximately 30 seconds, and the web browser (IE) speedily loaded pages, including YouTube.

The user did not reveal any additional specs, including screen size, which seems comparable to the iPad’s 9.7-inch display, pixel density or processor.
