A couple of years ago, HP suffered one of the worst tablet-related humiliations we’ve witnessed to date, initially claiming that the webOS-rockin’ TouchPad was better than the iPad, only to sell it off for peanuts a few months later.
More recently, we’ve welcomed the Android-based HP Slate 7, and now the Americans have thrown six further shrimps on the tablet barbie. Crikey.
Rather than throw millions of paragraphs at this, I think I’ll take a page out of Engadget’s book and use bullet points. Ready? Slate denotes Android, “btw”.
- HP Slate 8 Pro: 7.98in 4:3 display (1600 x 1200 – better than the iPad mini), Tegra 4 processor, 8MP/2MP cameras, microSD.
- HP Slate 7 HD, HP Slate 10 HD: no prizes for guessing the display sizes here, and both have 1280 x 800 resolutions. Other specs include optional 4G and an unspecified dual-core processor.
- HP Slate 7 Extreme: Clearly HP can’t get enough 7-inch action (the Extreme makes three), though this one is notable for having a Tegra 4 processor and stylus compatibility. Like the above pair, it’s a 1280 x 800 resolution.
- HP Pavillion 11 x2: Rocking Windows 8, the HP Pavillion 11 x2 has an 11.6in display (1366 x 768), Intel Bay Trail processor, 4GB of RAM, up to 128GB storage, and keyboard dock compatibility. It’ll sell from $599.99 in the US – with dock.
- HP Omni 10: Here we have a 10in display (1920 x 1080), Bay Trail processor, 64GB storage and 2GB of RAM.
Phew. For more info and hands-on action, hit the blue word above.
