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.

Overall Expert Rating (3.2 Out of 5 based on 6 ratings)
At $170, you`d expect the HP Slate 7 to be stripped of a few features; however, HP takes this a bit too far. The Slate 7 includes only 8GB of storage, and it has no gyroscope, no GPS hardware, poor camera quality, a slightly (but significantly) older......
Pros: The HP Slate 7 is a durable 7-inch tablet, includes an expandable storage option, and has good gaming performance. Beats Audio effectively enhances bass-heavy music through headphones or earbuds.
Cons: The screenu2019s resolution is eye-squintingly low, large apps take a long time to load, and its cameras produce washed-out, dull-looking shots. Also, thereu2019s no GPS, and Android 4.1.1 can feel a bit archaic compared with newer versions of the OS.
Verdict: The HP Slate 7 strips out way too much to make its low price, and what`s left can`t compare to the Nexus 7`s offerings....
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...
HPâ€™s first go-around with a tablet didnâ€™t actually go so well. The webOS-based TouchPad didnâ€™t last long and was quickly discontinued. However, the company is back with another slate, only this time itâ€™s running the more widely-adopted Android operating system, and it seems as though HP wants to give tablets another whack with its first-ever Android tablet, the Slate 7. We took a peek at it during CES 2013 back in Janu...
Budget tablets arenÃ¢Â€Â™t what they used to be. Where they used to have diabolical screens, poor build and ropey third-party app stores, today they offer an experience comparable with tablets double the price. The HP Slate 7 is a 7-inch Android tablet that wants to undercut many of the the biggest names, including the Google Nexus 7. But does it cut one corner too many in the process?HP Slate 7 Ã¢Â€Â“ Design and Features...
After its aborted efforts with WebOS and the TouchPad two years ago, it appears that HP thinks now is the time to get involved with tablets. Here is the Slate 7 - a 7-inch tablet running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. And why not? After all, though we think of tablets as a market that`s `Apple plus others`, it`s worth remembering that it`s actually in its infancy both in terms of the technology itself and the number of people globally that actually have...
