HP Slate 500 specs revealed — what was confirmed, plus one big surprise

One great thing from the unboxing and review video that was previously leaked was that we finally got some hard, concrete specs on the HP Slate. Previous reports had the unit pegged with a single core Intel Atom processor, a measly 32gb of storage and no clue on if it can handle any type of HD video. Well we’ve broken down the video for you and got the specs listed for your consumption. Check it out after the break.
