    Don't know what UWVA stands for - can anyone help with this?

    Not at all sure...probably relates to the digitizer being active or not, or touchscreen ability.

    maybe ultra wide viewing angle "wva" on TC4400 means it has a 160 deg viewing angle

    Indeed it is an Ultra Wide Viewing Angle screen with a WXGA (Wide eXtended Graphics Adapter) resolution 12.1" display. :)

    Wow. I've been hoping to see a new Santa Rosa ThinkPad X61 tablet with the features I want, and this HP Compaq 2710p looks to be a great 3.64 lbs competitor in the same category. It has a pointing stick (which I love), webcam, and Engadget speculates 11n.

    Do all the accessories listed in the original post come bundled with the 2710p, or sold separately? A commenter at Engadget said the 2710p is listed at one place as having up to 16hrs battery life, could this be with the second ultra-slim battery in the expansion base? Also, will there be a BD or HD DVD player or writer as an option?

    I would've liked a 2.5" HDD though, as the 1.8" drive in my current ThinkPad X41T is very slow. I also like ThinkPad's new dual-mode digitizer/touchscreen feature.

    Admittedly I also would like a built-in optical drive. To make up for its absence, I hope the 2710p truly has diminutive dimensions, and that the expansion base is a portable accessory that fits in the same dimensions as the unit itself.


    Anyways, I'm impressed with HP these days. I'm also piqued by the HP Pavilion HDX monster 20" laptop (discussion) -- too bad this one only has a touchpad...

    Can anyone confirm the details about it not having an optical drive or a touchpad? I personally hate the pointing stick and definitely need a optical drive. I was hoping there would be an intel version of the TX1000 but if this is the only announced thats been made I guess I'm out of luck.

    for those of you curious for details, i'm just quoting someone who posted a comment at Engadget. so you can't hold me to this:

    so basically, no integrated optical drive, no 11n wireless, and probably standard(ish) battery life due to the 6-cell battery

    The two pages I linked to in the original post have been taken down, but I did save both :p.

    Contains HP press release page, large res pic, and the PDF.

    HP 2710p
    Productivity with a twist.
    Weight: 1.65 kg
    Outstanding features:
    •Camera for video
    conferencing
    •Keyboard /
    handwriting
    capabilities
    •16-hour ultracapacity
    battery

    •3 Years Pick-up &
    Return Service
    ==>
    If you need a bigger
    screen or an integrated
    optical drive, or 3G
    Broadband Wireless
    connectivity, choose the
    HP 6910p.

    That is the information from HPs PDF.
    If this machine really reaches 16h and is available in Germany for a reasonable price (1400€ max.), I will definitely buy one. 8h would be enough too
    ...
    I hope the casing consists of some ultra-light metal and no brushed plastic...
    I really do not get why notebooks must not have metal cases--don´t they have strong EM fields like desktops?
