Tech News: HP Slate 7 with Beats Audio Android Tablet

HP has lately returned to the buzzing world of tablets by introducing, not webOS, but an Android tablet. This upcoming product, named Slate 7, is an ideal 7-inch tablet with an incredibly low cost of $169, which stands at $30 less than Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus.

Features:

The HP jelly tablet is expected to launch in the U.S. this April. This eighth of a pound (13.05 ounces), weighty device is lighter than Fire HD (13.9 ounces), but an ounce heavier than Nexus 7, and boasts Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 1GB RAM, and solid memory storage of 8 gigabytes. But the conspicuous feature that really distinguishes it from Nexus 7 is the microSD card slot in addition to a micro USB port.

The 4.1 Android HP Slate 7 tablet, available in red or gray, has a stainless steel frame with a handsome soft touch rubber back, and under the premium exterior lies a 1.6 GHz ARM Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor that claims to offer swifter performance in comparison to the quad-core Tegra 3 of the Nexus 7. The 10.7 mm thick device comes with a three MP camera at the back, an upfront VGA webcam, and 1024 x 600 resolution with High-aperture-ratio Field Fringe Switching (HFFS) technology that, in accordance with HP, will feature wide viewing angles. The company claims the tablet will have five hours of battery life.

The Slate 7 really stands out for its embedded Beats Audio, which is capable of producing an extra racy and more robust sound. Beats Audio processing not only buoys up a set of stereo speakers (located at the bottom), but also instigates use of earphones. Another exceptional feature is ePrint, which sets the Slate 7 apart from other tablets, providing you the facility of wireless printing. Furthermore, the software is customized to some extent so as to amalgamate Beats and ePrint right into the OS, letting other apps access their functionality.
