HP Releases Three New Android Tablets

Hewlett-Packard is slowly but surely making itself known in the realm of Android tablets. Just recently, it has launched three new Android tablets, namely the Pro Slate 12, the Pro Slate 8, and the Pro Slate 10 EE. The first two Android tablets from HP look quite similar to the HTC One (but much larger, of course). First off is the HP Pro Slate 12, which features a 12-inch display with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels resulting in a poor pixel density of 163 ppi. Meanwhile, the Pro Slate 8 is equipped with a 7.9-inch screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels resulting in a pixel density of 326 ppi, which is exactly what the iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3 offer. Both slates feature a dated Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM. They run on Android 4.4 KitKat and comes pre-installed with some HP apps.

Both HP tablets are also bundled with the new Duet Pen, which a potential S-Pen competitor. The Duet Pen allows you to write on any surface and have that writing automatically appear on your tablet. Other than the Duet Pen, there are no other standout features from both tablets. And if you think that HP would sell these devices at affordable prices, then you are wrong. The HP Pro Slate 8 and the Pro Slate 12 will cost you $449 and $569, respectively.

The third HP Android tablet is the Pro Slate 10 EE, which also runs Android 4.4 KitKat. Unlike the other two Pro Slate tablets, this one won't come with the Duet Pen. It packs a 10.1-inch screen of 1280 x 800 resolution, a dual-core Intel Atom processor, and 1GB RAM. The Pro Slate 10 EE retails for $279, which is still a bit expensive for what it offers.
