HARDWARE MAKER HP announced a slew of Android tablets on Thursday, including the Slate 7 Extreme based on Nvidia's Tegra Note prototype.
The HP Slate 7 Extreme is the followup to the firm's budget Slate 7 tablet, and is based on Nvidia's new Tegra Note reference design that combines a Tegra 4 chip with a stylus focused build of Android.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the tablet features a 7in 1280x800 resolution display like the Tegra Note, along with 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and dual 5MP and 2MP cameras. The HP Slate 7 Extreme is also the first tablet to feature Camera Awesome integration, an advanced photography application.
The second of HP's revelations was the HP Slate 8 Pro, which features a 7.98in 1600x1200 resolution display with a 4:3 aspect ratio. HP has yet to divulge full specifications, but we do know that it will feature integrated Beats Audio technology, an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor and a number of pre-loaded business applications, including HP File Manager, HP Connected Music and HP ePrint.
HP also announced the HP Slate 7 HD and the Slate 10 HD tablets today. Both tablets feature 1280x800 resolution displays, dual cameras and optional 4G connectivity. They also come with a data allowance, with HP offering 250MB of 3G+ of data per month for buyers of the tablets.
Microsoft was also in attendance at HP's announcement on Thursday, as the firm also debuted the Windows powered Omni 10 slate. This tablet boasts an Intel Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.
We're still awaiting details on pricing and availability for HP's new tablet lineup. µ
