We’ve got word from one loyal reader that his HP Slate is en route from Shanghai, and he even provided us PDF proof of that fact, just to quell any doubts. We’re not sure if that’s some little slip on HP and FedEx’s part, or a sign of larger things to come (be sure to let us know in the comments if you’ve received similar notice), but for now all we know is that something enterprisey is scheduled to show up on one Dave P.’s doorstep on December 6th. Godspeed, dear tablet. Godspeed.
[Thanks, Dave P.]

Yes, the HP Slate 500 is officially backordered, less than a month after its enterprising debut, and Hewlett-Packard claims it’s because of “extraordinary demand,” a phrase that’s presently not quantifiable. The long and short of it, though, is that you’re not getting one by Yuletide if you purchase the pricey portable today, as you’ll have to wait six weeks until they’re ready to ship out. Still, if your budding business bought in on day one, there’s still a chance it might arrive in time — ours is due to our door in early December, if that gives you any idea. We’ve pinged HP for comment, and hope to hear back soon. We’ll be sure to let you know just how “extraordinary” those sales numbers might be.
