The Slate 7 is the newest Android tablet from HP.  The Slate 7 has a “fully-featuered” 7″ screen and front and rear cameras.  The back is made of painted stainless steel, which probably explains why this small tablet weighs 13 ounces.  This tablet runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and as HP says, it’s capable of running anything you find in the Google Play store.  Beats Audio means the Slate  7 produces “the best sounding, richest audio available on a tablet.”  It will be available in April 2013 in the US, and it will have a $169 starting price.  Read the full press release here.

    micro-USB port
    micro SD expandable card slot
    1024 by 600, High-aperture-ratio Field Fringe Switching (HFFS) panel) Whatever that means… 🙂
