The company has detailed four new high-def tablets.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, HP has unveiled a quartet of Android powered tablets. The upcoming lineup includes the Slate 7 HD, the Slate 10 HD, the Slate 8 Pro, and the Slate 7 Extreme.
The Slate 7 HD features a 7-inch 1,280 x 800 IPS display along with a dual core processor. The tablet is rated for nine hours of battery life and includes Beats Audio and optional 4G support through T-Mobile. The similar Slate 10 HD has the same specs but comes with a larger 10-inch screen.
Marking HP's first foray into the 8-inch tablet market, the Slate 8 Pro features a 1,600 x 1,200 screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The tablet is powered by a Tegra 4 processor and includes an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. A microSD slot, a micro-HDMI output, and a micro-USB port are all included as well.
Finally, the Slate 7 Extreme offers a step-up in power from HP's other 7-inch options. The device uses a Tegra 4 quad-core processor and features a 1,280 x 800 display. Unlike the company's other recently announced models, the tablet also comes with a stylus.
Exact pricing for the lineup has not been detailed yet, but the tablets are all expected to ship in November.
