The Slate 2 is a touchscreen tablet device from HP that functions as an upgraded version of the company's Slate 500 model. Running a customized version of the Windows 7 Mobile operating system, this model features an 8.9-inch LCD display for compact, high-quality support. Incorporating an N-Trig DuoSense digitizer for compatibility with touchscreen device pens, the tablet includes an Intel Atom Z670 processor for powerful unit operations and smooth application multitasking. Text-based communication is significantly improved through Swype keyboard technology, a service that allows the user to type whole words and sentences at a time without removing their finger from the screen. Unit response is further improved by the inclusion of a 32-gigabyte solid state drive, offering instant boot-up capabilities with virtually no loading times when calling up various files. The Slate 2 also incorporates a number of state-of-the-art security features, including TPM engineering for advanced disc encryption and Computrace Pro for remote tracking and control in the event that the tablet is stolen or misplaced.
