HP Slate 7 tablet

It took HP more than two years in order to debut in the market segment for Android running tablets. I guess they finally understood that their operating system, the webOS, is not a match for Android OS. So, they switched to Android, and they sold the webOS rights to LG, a company that will use it in their next generation of Smart TVs.

The first HP Android tablet is called Slate 7 and it is a mid-level device. Slate 7 is equipped with a 7-inch LCD screen that has a resolution of 1024 x 600, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal space which can be expanded up to 32GB thanks to the microSD slot.

Slate 7 weighs 370 grams, measures 10.7 mm thickness and comes with a battery that allows up to 5 hours of video playback. It also features 2 stereo speakers with Beats Audio technology (the technology used by HTC devices). The cost for Slade 7 is around $170, and it will be available in stores starting April 2013.
