    Default Replacement battery on HP site

    OK, this is weird - HP's website is now showing a replacement battery for the HP Slate 500:

    HP WM06 Notebook Battery (BQ351AA) specifications - HP Small & Medium Business products

    HP WM06 Notebook Battery (BQ351AA) - Specifications and Warranty

    Compatible products for:
    HP WM06 Notebook Battery (BQ351AA)

    Business Laptop and Tablet PCs
    HP Slate 500 Tablet PC

    So is it user-replaceable?

    How?...the back is a single textured surface....any attempt to replace the battery looks more like a voided warenty nightmare in the making.

    Something's not right. Based on the dimensions listed on the web site, the battery is larger than the Slate itself. With this and the incompatible power adapter still listed on the web site, it seems that HP's left hand doesn't know what its right hand is doing.

    I suspect that the HP database is fouled up. The power supply they were showing was also incorrect. If I had to guess, it thinks the HP Slate is just another version of the HP Mini (which is also why the Slate shows up in the Mini category).
