HP Slate and Adobe Flash

See video

It cool to see where tech and media is moving their efforts too, and right now it seems to be the tablet format.

I have seen pics of the Hp Slate before, and I can't help to say the iPad is a sexier product, but the HP Slate is definitely seems way more practical.

if you not much into tech skip 1/2 into the video, because this video runs like a rebuttal to Steve Jobs arguments of implementing Flash into its iPad platform.  

My thoughts: I agree 100% in Steve Jobs arguments against Flash, Adobe implementation of flash on the desktop is just horrible, its a complete memory hog.  But at the end of the day, Flash and Adobe Air are sort of made to look and interact great on a tablet, seriously the tablet is about consuming media, and today a huge majority of our consumption is through flash.  I did watch a video earlier this week, where the team leader for the Flash division, said they have been highly optimizing the flash plugin for mobile devices, so I can wait to see what they do, plus I can't wait to get flash on my Palm Pre.

Final thoughts: despite its lack of complete sexiness, this runs on Win 7 (which I love) and if you were able to buy it tomorrow it would work completely out of the box, vs if you could buy an iPad tomorrow you would have to wait for developers/companies to catch up or tolerate scaled up iphone apps, mmm.
