Steve Ballmer shows off HP slate prototype

Tonight Steve Ballmer showed off briefly a prototype slate running Windows 7 from HP. No more details on the device itself, other than what Ballmer showed off. The device is about the size of a Kindle though it supports color, Windows 7, touch, an accelerometer, and of course, apps that run under Windows.

Steve suggests the device will be released sometime this year.

I’m so much looking forward to more details about the HP slate.

Is it a Kindle killer? Or an Apple tablet killer? We’ll have to see when the product actually ships. Hopefully, it’ll support ink–or at least have apps that support ink–because that’s one great differentiator for Microsoft Windows.
