Tremendously powered Tablet flavoured with Jelly Bean
HP Slate-7 tablet sports a 7-inch HFFS display and has a display resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system and has got itself powered with a 1.6GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor assisted by 1GB of RAM.
The Slate-7 tablet from HP packs a 3MP rear camera along with a VGA front-facing camera. It houses an internal memory of 8GB along with a Micro SD Slot for memory expansion via Micro SD card.
HP Slate-7 is built especially for those who desire to flaunt their device exhibiting the most technologically advanced features and thus, is quite capable of giving a tough competition to the HCL Me Y3 which is available at a higher price and has Dual-SIM capabilities. However, it lacks a Jelly Bean OS.
A titan of Silicon Valley, HP has seen more than its fair share of struggles over the past few years. The company long has grappled with the tablet formula, though often at the mercy of whatever Microsoft pushed down from Redmond. They've launched several Windows XP and Windows 7 convertible tablets, and most recently launched a pair of Windows 8-powered tablets. But they've all been more PC than mobile device. The most spectacular of HP&...
Pros: The Slate 7 ships with nearly "stock" Android 4.1.1 and offers (in theory) better sound quality thanks to Beats Audio integration. Additionally, the tablet is well put together, with a metal band around the edges and a nice soft-touch backing.
Cons: But for all the goodness that comes with practically unadulterated Android, the tablet is a massive letdown. The screen is just awful. And so are the speakers. And the cameras. And despite internals that should compare favorably to older tablets like the
Verdict: At $169.99, the HP Slate 7 seems like it could be a good deal near the bottom of the Android tablet scene. But as decent as the implementation of vanilla Android coupled with Beats Audio should be, the experience is compromised from the start an expe...
Overall User Rating (3.7 Out of 5 based on 119 ratings)
Overall: I bought the HP Slate 7 Tablet for INR 7000/- a couple of weeks ago! The tab has everything loaded in for that price tag - i couldn't ask for more! Android means every app that ipad/nexus can have will be available on this tab.
The touch is good - may not be as fine as ipad/samsung but at that price fineness cannot be expected.
Simple to average games play like a breeze - I haven't tried heavy gaming as I'm not much into gaming.
Net browsing, e-book reading is smooth - no freezing screens etc.
Rear camera - 3MP - good and handy for my needs
Front camera - 0.3MP - for skype video calls - just ok.
8GB space - I had 6.2 GB free space when I unpacked - I still have 3.5 GB space and with the option to extend to 32GB, that'll be a lot more than my needs.
Suggestion to flipkart/WS retail: It'd be good if you can provide a combo offer with case cover - because it's a little difficult to find the right case for this tablet.
Overall, a superb tab with an affordable price tag! Happy!
Flipkart/WS retail: You just earned a loyal customer. Great job from competitive pricing to delivery!
