Discussion in 'HP Slate' started by jgjackson, Oct 28, 2010.
Well, I'm not holding my breath while waiting. Maybe by the first of the year???
Only concerns I have with the Slate 500 is it's not a dual core atom or ulv cpu and it has a super glossy screen. That's it.
I got the HP Holiday Guide in the mail yesterday. The TM2 is advertised, but the Slate isn't. Seems to be aimed at Home users. I wonder if EliteBook owners will be receiving the Business version of this Guide? If so, I'm curious to know if the Slate is showcased anywhere. It's a "holiday" guide -- after all.
I get small business updates from HP and the Slate was featured on the last one ... backorder notice and all.
I'm waiting to hear that somebody has gotten tracking information tomorrow.
I just saw that HP authorized the charge on my card on 11/27 - Saturday. It's the only time they hit my card (I placed my order on October 28th) - so we'll see what happens this week.
No new charges on my American Express. The order status link that HP provided has stopped working however. The link is dead.
Order status page is sort of working again. I can get the summary-my order should have been delivered today! Haha! But when I click on the order number the server gets an internal error. My bank has another authorization pending. Never had that happen on a Sunday before. Usually they did that on Friday.
N-Trig has now posted four updates/downloads for the Slate 500...

Good find...reading tea leaves can drive one nuts, but at least N-Trig expects HP to release a Slate some day.
Well, no email nor real update to the order page (just cycled over one day to show planned delivery today), but it is early yet. I suppose they wouldn't send a shipment email until actual shipping, so I guess there will be more time to see if that phone rep was right last week (for new readers, I was told by the 800 number folks last week that my Slate would ship from El Paso, TX on November 29, with delivery on 12/1).
When I googled HP Slate 500 news this morning this article came up, dated Nov 22. Or so google dated it, no date on the article.

But it refers to "when it is formally released on Monday".
