HP's Slate 7 Android Red

In less than two months, April (2013) to be exact, you will be able to buy a Slate 7 Android tablet from HP for $169 USD.

Announced at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, the Slate 7 Android tablet is HP’s first consumer-level tablet device since the failed webOS-powered Touchpad.

But for that price, what will you be getting?

Nothing spectacular. The Slate 7 will be powered by an ARM Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor gunning at 1.6 GHz. That’s not in the same class as current Android tablets most of which are powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor, but for $169 USD and a 7-inch screen, what did you expect?

  1. This leaves out which GPU the device will be using. If it has a Mali 450, for example, then it would have a more powerful GPU for most applications than the Tegra 3 GPU. That would make overall performance a bit more even with Tegra 3 powered devices. On the other hand, it could have an underpowered GPU and not even be worth the price of admission (though I’d expect something at least decent).
