HP's Slate Device Runs The Complete Internet -- Including Flash!

We gave everyone a peek at HP’s slate device during CES 2010 and people got excited. Last month, we let you see a little more about what our slate can do – and you guys lit up the Internet with comments.
Well, we’re listening – and want to give you a little more insight. So, here’s what I can tell you for now without getting into too much trouble with my boss:


With this slate product, you’re getting a full Web browsing experience in the palm of your hand. No watered-down Internet, no sacrifices. We just posted a quick video showing some more of what that’s like as well as how the slate device will work as an eBook reader. Enjoy the short clip (and the techno soundtrack).




But that brings us to something bati555 and others asked on Youtube: “Does this thing have flash support?”
A big bonus for the slate product is that, being based off Windows 7, it offers full Adobe support.

To demonstrate that, here’s a second video with Adobe’s Alan Tam. He shows Adobe Air and Flash in action on the device: Video playback from MTV.com; A Spongebob Squarepants game (most casual games on the Web run in Flash); photo editing at Photoshop.com and reading the digital version of the New York Times.




pcfix411 asked us to “keep these coming into YouTube.” Ok, we will! In the mean time, sign up for updates on hp.com/slate. Or go on Twitter, YouTube, and our forums. Let us know what you think and what you’d do if you had a slate.
Oh, and our friends at the FCC want us to let you know that this device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission.  This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

I am so happy that this supports Flash, I am such a huge fan of it.  If we could only get Apple to follow suit.  I'm in the process of redoing my whole web site  because Flash just isn't supported by all our "speciality" devices.

I was very pleased to find this site.I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely enjoyed it..Apple's iPad, it's a beautiful iTunes platform as envisioned; nothing more and nothing less. With or without Flash-based video, I believe it will be a runaway success in the Apple marketplace and will only help the entire personal computing industry advance the touch/gesture UI in same way that the iPhone helped to advance the smart phone market. cheap shoes online

It was only a matter of time before this idea spread across the manufacturers, I now believe that a similar unit is available in Asia for $35 !

The flash integration is absolutely key for me. I purchased an IPad and its ok but I'm unable to trade on binary options trading platforms like OptionBit and Anyoption because the charting functionality is flash based.

Why won't HP just release the Slate already. I've got lucrative business ideas/opportunities hanging off this.

Great! I truly believe this could easily outforce the ipad. And I am very happy for that:-) HP is my favourite manufacturer of computer electronics. And I just love my old nx 6125. :-) - Ray J. from Kontantkort

HP has been teasing us with Slate prototypes all summer. WHEN WILL THEY BE ON THE SHELVES?

The most beautiful thing about it is a flash support! That is for sure. I had a lot of problems trying to run flash content on iPad. And once I had to show my thesis to my lecturer and something was wrong with internet and I simply couldn't download it. So I believe usb port on Slate will proove its usefulness!
