"No watered-down internet, no sacrifices."

HP's Slate is set for release later this year, which gives Apple a head-start in the tablet PC market.

"Chip and screen advancements have given us the ability to create a product that can hit a size, weight, battery life and price point that will make this product a mainstream offering," wrote the HP rep.
