Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer debuted the HP Slate tablet computer during the CES 2010 keynote address last night, and while it was only a teaser, there were a few details and pictures available.

During what might have been the highlight of last night's speech (apparently not everyone was impressed), Ballmer hinted that we'll be seeing a prototype some time later this year. (Seriously, there haven't been enough definite release dates at CES this year.)

In what could have been a great debut (and steal Apple's thunder before they ever come out with that darn tablet of their own), there weren't many concrete details beyond that.

But what did the world learn about the HP Slate? It will run on Windows 7, runs Amazon Kindle for PC, and the color touchscreen is in between 10 and 12 inches. It also apparently plays Frogger.
