HP has finally confirmed launch information and specs for its forthcoming Slate 500 tablet. ¬†We first saw the 500 at CES in January in prototype form. The Windows 7 device will be powered by Intel’s 1.86GHz Atom Z540 processor with Graphics Media Accelerator 500 chip running on a 8.9-inch, 1024×600 display .

Users will be able to purchase an optional keyboard and optical mouse, along with a digital pen. The device also integrates dual cameras, including a three-megapixel sensor on the back. All of the hardware is built into a package that, weighs the 1.5 pounds.

A special HDMI dock is available to output video to TVs, as is a pen that will work with the capacitive screen and a portfolio case.

The Slate 500 should be available online today at HP’s US business and enterprise online stores for $799. International sales will come later, and no mention has been made of a consumer version.
