HP may not yet have a product shipping but they’re going to show you mock-ups.

The HP slate may not be shipping and there may be another slate overshadowing it this week but HP (NYSE:HPQ) wants you to know it runs social networking apps. The slate, which has a 10-inch screen, will run Windows 7 and should cost a little under $600 when it is released this summer.

I would love to see other players in the slate space but what I’d really love to see are slate players who are shipping. I think the major manufacturers pussy-foot around too much when it comes to releasing products and then release too much collateral on the run-up to launch, thereby destroying any anticipation. This is definitely a case of poop or get off the potty, HP. Let’s see the goods.
