The iPad is a fantastic looking device but with so many manufacturers jumping on the tablet bandwagon it’ll be interesting to see what influence Flash support will have on consumers looking to make a purchase. Unlike the iPad, HP’s Slate will run the full internet, which means full support for Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR.

In the video above, Alan Tan, product marketing manager at Adobe demonstrates Flash and AIR applications running on the Slate. It’s a nice looking device and the performance on the whole seems to be very good. Let’s hope HP get the price point right and that it appears nearer the first half of this year rather than the second.
