I'm wondering how others think the HP Slate 500 will fit into your gadget world. My pre-slate world looks like this: * HTC TouchPro 2 Windows Mobile 6.5 phone with a 3.7 inch WVGA screen. It's my primary voice and email device. I often skim the news through mobile web sites and blogs through reader.google.com. I'm getting tired of the small size of the screen though. I keep about 1000 songs on it. * iPaq 210 Windows Mobile 6.1 PDA with a huge 4inch VGA screen. I primarily use this as an ebook reader (Laridian.com) because the screen surface area is so much bigger. Occasional web surfing. All my music (5000 tracks) is on it, but all music players on Windows Mobile are pretty much bogged down one way or another by that much music. It's often used as my MP3 player at home whereas the phone is what I use on the go. * Gateway C-120x tablet with a 12" 1280x800 screen. This is my real go-to machine for my computing needs: everything from Adobe Production Bundle to Offce, OneNote, and Logos Bible Software, where the bulk of my book library is (well over 3000 books). * Old self-built desktop system. This is my server. I remote desktop into it from the phone or pda occasionally to access Logos. It used to be my Orb server, but I haven't used that in years. It can also run my Adobe software, but it's currently a couple versions behind. Finally, it has yet another backup of my critical files, besides the USB drives, that can be accessed quickly should another device fail. It also is my Digital Audio Workstation for recording music. Modern systems don't support the PCI cards I use for capturing multiple tracks of audio sumultaniously. I see the slate as replacing the PDA entirely. Although it isn't quite as portable as the PDA, the few times I think that would be an issue, the phone can fill in. I also see it replacing most of my mobile uses of the TabletPC. I probably won't be running Adobe software on it, but Logos, OneNote, Word, and FrameMaker are definate. The slate will be the device I take to church to serve as my Bible and notepad. The slate will be the device I work on Bible lessons on and read books on. I'm not sure what to do about the TabletPC and Desktop systems yet. They are both long of tooth. I need a 64-bit system to run some of the Adobe CS5 software. The desktop will be kept around to be my digital audio workstation. Since portability will no longer be as much of a concern, the question becomes what to replace the TabletPC with. Should I get the 13.3" Fujitsu T-900, get a traditional laptop with an external Wacom tablet, or build a new desktop system? I guess it will depend on how good an experience the HP Slate 500 will be. I hoping it will be good enough that I decide I don't need any other mobile device since its much cheeper to build a desktop system. But I'm suspecting I'll end up wanting to supplement it with another convertable Tablet or at least a LapTop. We'll see, I hope.
