The HP Slate - An iPad Competitor?

HP doesn't seem to think so. With the popularity of the iPad (46k sold per day) I would think HP would order a production run of more than 5,000. If they don't have faith in their own product, how can the consumer?

HP Sells 9,000 Slate 500 Tablets, Twice What It Expected:
HP sold twice as many Slate 500 tablets as expected, Engadget reports.

An Engadget source says HP ordered a 5,000 unit production run of the enterprise focused device. But it's had 9,000 orders come in.
For huge companies like HP and Microsoft, the sale of 9,000 more PCs is nothing.

For context, Apple sold 4.19 million iPads last quarter, which roughly equates to 46,555 iPads sold every day.
