HP introduces 4 new Android tablets, including two with NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 chipset


HP Slate 10 HD

Even though the gadget market is flooded, HP has not been left behind as it has introduced four new Android tablets in the market leading to an expansion of its tablet lineup. The new tablets range from 7 to 10 inches with pre-installed Google Play store and select models will come with 200MB per month of free data from T-Mobile for a period of two years. The Tablets are to launch in November, though the date is not yet defined as yet.

The HP Slate Extreme, the Slate 7 HD will each feature a 7-inch display and without a doubt it has something to do with the name. The Extreme is the higher of the two with the high end features including an NVIDIA Tegra 4 ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor. It also has an impressive 1280 x 800 pixel display and sets a standard for this debut 7-inch tablet from HP. It also bags in it a stylus, front and 5MP rear cameras, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support on the connectivity end.

The HP Slate HD on the other hand which is also a 7-inch model (obviously) also comes with a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display but with a Marvell PXA986 processor. On the connectivity end the model comes with an optional 3G/4G data support and its more likely to be one of  the models to come with 200MB free data, so for the free data lovers mark this for a rainy day come November. The model also bags a Beats Audio and a 9hr battery life so for the music lovers this may just be the right tablet to bring out the audio experience that you need. The model also has front and rear cameras on the front and back for your online chat experience.

HP Slate Pro

Now to the 8-inch models, HP Slate 8 Pro features an 8-inch (again, obviously), 1600 x 1200 pixel display, NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 8MP rear camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera. Other features include a microSD card slot, micro-USB and micro HDMI port which is a big plus if you know what I mean.

HP Slate10 HD has a 10 inch screen display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and a Marvell processor, a micro SD card slot, front and rear cameras, Beats Audio and cellular data. What’s notable is that HP has openly avoided the Snapdragon processor, which most tablets on the competitors side run on. Well let’s wait for November as the unveiling may shed more light on the speed and hands-on experience.
