"Seemingly obtained from HP itself, the €400 ($546) price tag positions the Slate a notch above netbooks and bodes well for the expectation that it'll undercut the iPad's entry level pricing. Straight currency conversations are inadvisable in such situations, so we'll just have to wait until official stickers for the iPad in Europe are known or HP announces US prices for the Slate."
If this pricing holds true, I think I'll be going with this over the iPad. I know you can make the argument either way, but I prefer having a full OS and the ability to do what I want on the device over the easier to use, but more locked down environment of the iPad. Plus, since this runs Windows, I'll hopefully be able to tether this to my Droid without much trouble.
