Hewlett-Packard and Adobe released two videos today teaser from Slate, a tablet presented by Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's CEO, during CES 2010. We already know that the product should fight hard with the iPad in price, but that is clearly not enough.

Therefore, both companies decided to take the iPad's ?weak point?: the absence of Flash technology, in the case of the HP Slate integrated with Adobe AIR running on Windows 7.
?85% of Alexa's Top 100 use Flash on their websites.?
?75% of all videos on the web are in Flash.?
Slate can access ?the entire web, not just a part of it?.
Check out the demonstration presented by Alan Tam:

HP Slate is still awaiting FCC approval in the United States and has no forecast for market availability.
