Among other announcements, Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer tonight unveiled a “new touch-enabled slate PC from HP”.   The demo was pretty anemic, only showing a clunky Kindle application and fumbling around a video application which clearly didn’t work like it was supposed to.  We wonder if anyone was calling this a “slate” a month ago? 

That being said, Robbie Bach brought it with Project Natal based XBOX 360 which wil be available by next Christmas. (image via Engadget).  Short video of HP Slate below.
