HP Slate 7
Hewlett-Packard got back into the tablet game in a big way Sunday, introducing its first Android tablet. The HP Slate 7 comes with the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 operating system and a 7-inch display, plus an affordable price tag -- starting at $169. The tablet features a dual-core 1.6GHz chip based on ARM's Cortex-A9 architecture, plus 8 GB of storage, 1 GB of RAM and microSD support for expandable storage. The Slate 7 comes in a stainless steel frame and packs a 3-megapixel camera on the back and a VGA camera on the front. HP's Android tablet will go head-to-head with other smaller Android tablets such as the Amazon Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7. The HP Slate 7 will be available in the U.S. starting in April.
