HP Slate 2
Released November, 2011
The Pros:Battery capable of powering the device for up to six hours (good for such a large screen). Front-facing VGA webcam for videoconferencing. Have the option of Swype text-entry system previously seen on Android devices.
The Cons:You can essentially get a pretty powerful i5 laptop at this price. The same under powered 3-megapixel camera as the one on the Slate 500.
