Expanding on their original Slate 7, HP has introduced the Slate 7 HD and Slate 7 Extreme tablets.  Featuring higher resolution screens and faster processors at aggressive price points to the competition.   The HP Slate 7 HD features a 1280 x 800 display, dual cameras, a 1.2GHz dual core processor by Marvell and optional 3G and 4G connectivity all running on the Android operating system.  The HP Slate 7 Extreme is built around the state of the art Nvidia Tegra 4 processor and features a HD 1280 x 800 display, front firing speakers plus a precise stylus pen for enhanced productivity. The Extreme is expected to be available for $199 and the Slate 7 HD will retail for a bit less, but pricing has not been announced.  Both are expected to be available in November.

Perhaps it is coincidence or perhaps HP decided to send out samples of the HP Slate 7 Tablet to leading technology magazines at the same time, but whatever the case we've got three major tech mags all publishing their reviews of the Slate 7 within a couple of days.  The verdict?  Well interestingly they all seem to have a similar opinion of the Slate 7.  In a nuthshell the consensus seems to be that the Slate 7 has an admirable build quality and good feature set for the price but that the screen resolution and battery life are a bit lacking. 

Now whether these weaknesses are a deal breaker for you or not really depends on how much value you put in the strong points of the Slate 7.  The HP ePrint software is certainly handy and the MicroSD slot makes expanding memory very easy and affordable.  Also, coming from a big name manufacturer such as HP, customers will certainly like the guarantee that comes with the tablet.  The  1024 x 600 resolution screen does have a lower resolution than some competing tablets such as the Nexus 7 and new Sero 7, but on the flipside, some of the reviews point out that the wide viewing angles are nice.   Another strong point was the solid and high quality finish with reviewers generally liking the soft grip black or red paint on the back.  In the end, the Slate 7 costs about $30 less than the well received Nexus 7 but $20 more than the new off label Sero 7.  It'll be for the consumer to decide if the strengths outweigh the weaknesses of the HP Slate 7 Tablet.  Yo ucan read the full reviews at the links below.

Slate 7 Apps / Re: Your Device isn't compatable....
« on: May 06, 2013, 12:35:19 PM »
Not really sure.  You might be right that we'll have to wait until some of the apps are updated to recognize the device.  If you figure out a solution please let us know.

A thorough and well video'd review of the HP Slate 7 by DetroitBORG.  From unboxing to a spec review to an overview of the tablet's performance, this video review is one of the best we've seen.  Mike runs through the setup of the Slate 7 and then moves on into using the tablet.  First up we get a demonstration of Google Now and the Slate 7's speakers.  While the screen is not the highest resolution, he doesn't seem to feel it is a big issue and it does appear fairly bright in the video.  While there is some added software from HP, overall it is a near stock Android experience.  We also get a benchmark shootout against the Nexus 7, a demonstration of both cameras and he generally seems happy with the Slate 7's performance.  Overall, Mike seems to like the build quality, although he's a tad let down by the screen on the Slate 7 compared to the Nexus 7.  Still, considering the price of the Slate 7 and the included MicroSD slot, it comes out with a relatively positive review.

Along with the launch of the HP Slate 7 on the HP Website, the company has made available both a 'Quick Start Guide' and 'User's Guide', both available for download in .pdf.  The 'Quick Start Guide' is just that...a seven page mini-guide to getting you familiar with all the essential hardware of your tablet and it also walks you through basic setup and use to get you on your way.   The 'User's Guide' is much more in-depth and explores all the features of the Slate 7 in-depth, including the built-in Google apps as well as special HP apps for printing and more.   If you've already ordered your Slate 7 from the HP website or if you're thinking about purchasing one it's worth your time to hit the links below and familiarize yourself with the HP Slate 7.
