HP unveils four Android tablets that no one is going to care about


HP still has not given up on Android devices, and today, released four new low-cost Jelly Bean running tablets – the Slate 7 HD, Slate 10 HD, Slate 7 Extreme and the Slate Pro 8. 

The Slate 7 Extreme is nothing but a re-branded Nvidia Note from the company. The tablet packs a disappointing 7-inch display with 1280*800 resolution, a Tegra 4 SoC, 1GB of RAM, a 5MP snapper in the back and a pull-out stylus pen. The tablet should be priced at $199 as suggested by Nvidia at its launch.


The Slate 7 and 10 HD are just run of the mill tablets with a 7-inch and 10-inch screen size, respectively. The HD toting tablets have a 720p screen resolution, 1GB of RAM, a low-end Marvell processor, 3G connectivity, microSD card slot and Beats Audio.

Perhaps the most loaded tablet in HP’s line-up is the Slate 8 Pro. The 7.9-inch tablet has a 1600*1200 resolution display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, a Tegra 4 processor, 8MP camera at its back, microSD card slot, micro-HDMI port and the other usual connectivity features.

All the tablets will be running on Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.2) out of the box, with some UI customisations from HP on top of it. HP did not provide any information about the release date and pricing of the tablets, except saying that they should hit the shelves sometime in November.

None of the tablets are really impressive, except for the Slate 7 Extreme. However, the success of these tablets largely depends on their pricing and availability.
