Well, who expected HP to unveil 4 brand new tablets with Android and some of them packed with good features? They actually did that today and let’s check out these devices in the following lines. By the way, the new model names are HP 7-HD, 7-Extreme, 8-Pro and 10-HD.


The HP Slate 10 HD packs a 1280 x 800 10 inch display and entry level specs. Inside there’s a Marvell PXA986 processor and this device, as well as the Slate 7 HD adopt plastic backs and the same CPU. We’ve got built in 3G cellular support, front and rear cameras and microSD card slots. There’s Beats Audio support on board as well.


The Slate 7 Extreme is clearly higher up the food chain, with a Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, always on HDR camera features and the virtual “Ink” feature for stylus users. The device has front speakers and it comes with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. The HP Slate 8 Pro has the best bargain, since it packs a 7.9 inch 1600 x 1200 pixel display, making it a clear iPad Mini 2 rival.

This one also has a Tegra 4 processor and it provides a 4:3 aspect ratio, that makes it better to read documents. HP seems to have chosen stock Android for these devices, keeping them as clean as possible. Some models of the HP Slate 7 HD and HP Slate 10 HD will come with 2 years of free mobile Internet service, of up to 200 MB of 4G data per month.
