HP has just released an update for their Windows 7 based slate tablet. The newer Slate 2 has a faster Atom processor at 1.5 GHz, Swype input support and 32GB SSD to start. They also changed the backing of their Slate 2 to be flat instead of the diamond style they had in the previous model. Still no integrated stylus slot and you’re still stuck with a disappointing 3 MP rear facing camera. On the upside, HP has lowered the starting price to $699.
