HP (Hewlett Packard) is bringing it’s new tablet HP Slate at mere $169. The new HP Slate is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. It is the cheapest, and smaller tablet by the company at this time, unlike it’s unsuccessful TouchPad tablet launched back in 2011. HP is also planning to bring a new range of Android powered Smartphones later in the market.
HP has learnt a lot from it’s failure with TouchPad tablet and changed it from it’s own software to the most popular Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. HP might bring some more tablets running Windows 8 or Windows RT in the near future, although it has some of it’s previous slates already running Windows.
Alberto Torres, working for HP mobile devices says, “When we looked at creating a real killer product for consumers, a very portable, very entertainment-focused device, we thought that Android was the better choice. Of course, we continue to work closely with Microsoft on other products as well.”
There is no word from the company regarding the features and specifications of it’s upcoming range of Smartphones except that they will be running Android OS. The new 7 inch HP Slate possesses a stainless steel framed body with a soft touch back. The tablet has a 3-megapixel rear faced camera as well as a secondary camera for video calling.
HP Slate 7 Features includes
- A dual-core ARM A9 processor
- 7-inch IPS display
- 3 Megapixel rear camera
- EPrint app

Beats audio provides an enjoyable good quality of music experience and ePrint app allow the user to print from the tablet using Wi-Fi connectivity. The new HP Slate 7 will release in the United States next month for $169 and later in the Europe and rest of the world. The price is revealed only for the U.S. market as of now. The price of HP Slate 7 for the rest of the world will be revealed around it’s availability.
