If you are in the market for a new Slate Hewlett Packard has finally put its Slate 7 and Slate 8 up on sale that are ready and available for you to purchase. HP is selling the Android tablets on their own website. The Slate’s were scheduled to release in November but HP barely missed that deadline.
The Slate 7 Plus from HP is an Android Tablet with a 7 inch touchscreen and 1280 x 800 resolution. It is also powered by Nvidia’s quad core Tegra 3 processor. While it is the cheapest of the three this comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of memory, microSD card slot and a 5 mega pixel camera. Again while it is not the best specced Slate it comes in at just $150 so it is very reasonably priced.
The second of the Android tablets being offered up by HP is the Slate 7 Extreme. Unlike like the Slate 7 Plus this comes with the Nvidia Tegra 4 chip and 16GB of internal memory. You get a micro-HDMI out socket, a stylus and this Slate has a set of forward facing speakers. This HP Slate 7 Extreme is priced at $200 and last check was already out of stock on HP’s website.
To round out the set HP also introduced the Slate 8 Pro. This of course comes with 8 inch screen and for those you don’t think the 1280 x 800 resolution is enough you will be happy with the 1600 x 1200 screen resolution on the Slate 8 Pro Android tablet. This also comes with the Tegra 4 chips and 1GB of RAM with 16GB of storage.
Other features for the Slate 8 Pro from HP are the 8 mega pixel rear camera, better battery and Beats Audio. To get these upgrades you are going to have to pony up and pay a little more as this Slate will set you back $330. All three of the HP Slates fine Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for the operating system.
If you are interested in these new Slates from Hewlett Packard get over to the website while some are still available for purchase. The Slate 7 Plus and Slate 8 Pro are still there but as mentioned the Slate 7 Extreme is out of stock and there is no word on when this particular Android tablet will be available.
