HP’s all new Tegra 4-powered Android tablet line is now available at Best Buy. Officially unveiled back in September, holiday shoppers perusing Best Buy’s site will find the HP Slate 7 Extreme and HP Slate 8 Pro retailing for $200 and $330, respectively.
The HP Slate 8 Pro features a familiar iPad Mini aspect ratio, carrying a 7.98-inch display with 1600×1200 resolution, 8MP rear camera/2MP front facing camera, 1GB DDR3 RAM, micro SD card slot, micro HDMI out, Beats Audio, and again — powered by a powerful NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor.
The HP Slate 7 Extreme is the more “affordable” out of the two, based on NVIDIA’s reference platform carrying a 7-inch 1280×800 resolution display, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 5MP rear/.3MP front facing cameras, micro SD card slot, stereo “front firing” speakers, and a passive stylus.
Both tablets are running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and sound like they offer a good amount of bang for the buck. Right now, Best Buy is offering free shipping for orders over $25, but — at least in my area — the 7 Extreme appears to be sold out. Anyone thinking about getting one of HP’s new tabs?
