In this MWC 2013 , HP returns to the fray in the tablet market after the failure at the time it got to take the operating system WebOS from Palm. Now, it has decided to enter the world of Android Tablet and bet on the HP Slate tablet 7 , focused on the basic range. If it goes well, you may opt to create products that meet the most demanding consumers.

First Android Tablet from HP
The HP Slate 7 is available for a very affordable starting price of 169.99 U.S. Dollars . With that number we become more or less to the idea of the niche you have decided to start. In fact, it is considerably cheaper than the Nexus 7 , a tablet with a set price for the technical features available, like its little brother the Nexus 4.
As for its specifications, the HP Slate 7 has a screen of 7 inches with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, perhaps very small. Inside, mounted an ARM Cortex A9 dual-core 1.6 GHz together with 1 GB of RAM. It also has an internal storage capacity of 8 GB which can expand via microSD cards.

As for connectivity, it has WiFi 802.11 b / g / n and Bluetooth 2.1. Similarly, features a 3 megapixel rear camera and a VGA front. Here we see clearly the intentions of HP for now, positioned as a cheap option sacrificing many options.
The HP Slate 7 weighs 368 grams and measures 10.7 mm wide. In addition, we must add that it incorporates neither GPS or NFC. Considering that manufacturers always add their own layer of customization on Android and, that therefore, receive updates later, is little competition at Nexus 7, a much more complete tablet.
Hit the market in April in the U.S. and subsequently release the rest of the world. Let’s wait to see how it behaves and see if it is worth its price.
