HP 8 1401 is a cheap Android tablet that’s landed in the US

HP has added yet another Android-powered tablet to its ever-increasing portfolio today, the oddly named 8 1401. No ‘Slate’ or ‘Slate Pro’ branding here, which is something that the company has used for its previous efforts. That lack of branding may be explained by this being an even lower-end tablet than HP’s other products. Though what the 8 1401 lacks in terms of specs, it may make up for through its...

HP Slate 7 Extreme now available for $199.99

Quick: what kind of looks like a Tegra Note, has the specs of a Tegra Note, but isn’t quite a Tegra Note? Well, it’s HP’s Slate 7 Extreme Android tablet, which has just gone on sale via the company’s own online store. It could be said that this is HP’s unique interpretation of Nvidia’s Tegra Note platform slash tablet, and it certainly looks like any other Tegra Note branded by other manufacturers....

HP Slate 8 Pro and Slate 7 Plus available in the US now. Slate 7 Extreme not yet on sale

HP has started selling two of its Android tablets that were announced back in September: the Slate 8 Pro and the Slate 7 Plus (aka Slate 7 HD). The Slate 8 Pro costs $329.99, runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and features: an 8 inch Gorilla Glass 3 display with 1600 x 1200 pixels, quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor (1.8GHz), Beats Audio, 8MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 5,680 mAh battery....

HP launches three low-cost Compaq Android tablets in China

Last month, HP introduced no less than four new Android-powered tablets for the US market, and today the company unveiled three more. These, though, are meant for the Chinese market (and may one day be released in other ‘developing’ nations). They’re called Compaq 7, Compaq 7+, and Compaq 8. It’s interesting to see HP use the Compaq brand here, one that it’s gone to in the past for cheap offerings (though...

HP intros four new Android tablets: Slate 7 HD, Slate 10 HD, Slate 7 Extreme, and Slate 8 Pro

In a rather surprising move, today HP has announced no less than 4 new Android tablets: Slate 7 HD, Slate 10 HD, Slate 7 Extreme, and Slate 8 Pro. The Slate 7 HD and Slate 10 HD share many of their features, but obviously have different screen sizes: 7 inch, and 10 inch (both with 1280 x 800 pixels). They offer optional 4G connectivity, Beats Audio, front and rear cameras, and a similar design. HP says the Slate 7 HD and Slate 10 HD...

HP Slate 8 Pro surfaces through benchmark, has Tegra 4 CPU and 8″ 1,600×1,200 touchscreen

Did you know that after its failed webOS experiment, HP is back at making mobile devices? Tablets, specifically? Well, it’s true, although the Slate 7 is in no way a best seller. But that apparently won’t stop the company from launching a new, bigger Android tablet soon. It’s going to be called HP Slate 8 Pro. Since the Slate 7 is a seven-incher, we assume that the Slate 8 will have an 8-inch touchscreen. Its...

HP Brave: upcoming Android smartphone gets leaked renders and specs (Update: it’s a fake)

HP is apparently getting ready to get back in the smartphone game. This after they’ve made their debut in the tablet space once again with the Slate 7. Gone is webOS from HP’s devices, though. The mobile OS that powered the Pre and its successors has in the meantime been sold to LG, which will use it in TVs for whatever reason. Yet HP still wants to have a go at the mobile market. Just not with webOS, it seems. The...

HP unveils the Slate 21 AIO, a 21.5-inch Android-powered all-in-one desktop computer with a touchscreen

HP has just announced a 21.5-inch Android tablet. No, really. This isn’t April Fools Day. And there’s no typo, you read that right – a 21.5-inch tablet. Well, it’s being sold as a desktop ‘all-in-one’, as they say, but it runs Android, unlike every other AIO out there. This clearly shows that HP is starting to bet more and more on Android. On one hand, such a huge Android device seems ludicrous. On...

HP intros SlateBook 10 x2 with Android Jelly Bean, Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU

The HP SlateBook 10 x2 that we told you about last month is now official, as HP has announced it alongside the HP Split x2 – a 13.3 inch Windows 8 notebook. As its name suggests, the SlateBook 10 x2 has a 10 inch display (1920 x 1080 pixels). It’s powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, being “the first Android hybrid” to use this new chipset. Like Asus’ Transformer tablets, the SlateBook x2 comes with a detachable...

New HP SlateBook 10 X2 with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Nvidia Tegra 4 in the making?

HP may be readying the launch of a high-end Android tablet, seemingly called SlateBook 10 X2. The HP SlateBook 10 X2 has been discovered by German website TabTech thanks to an AnTuTu benchmark. It looks like it’s got a 10 inch display of unknown resolution, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on board. Unfortunately, there’s no word on when HP intends to announce the SlateBook 10 X2 –...
