For that price you get a tablet with a 1.6 GHz Rockchip RK3066 dual-core processor, Android 4.1 software a 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. There’s also a 16GB model which now sells for $170.
Even at those new prices, the HP Slate 7 might not be the best deal around. The $199 Google Nexus 7 costs more, but has a higher resolution display and faster processor. Amazon is currently selling the Kindle Fire HD for $169 and up. And you can pick up a Barnes & Noble NOOK HD for $129.
Unlike some of those tablets, the HP Slate 7 does have a pretty pure Android experience rather than a custom version of Google’s operating system. It also has a microSD card slot for extra storage.
But the HP Slate 7 gets just up to 5 hours of battery life, which is pretty poor by today’s standards.
For the most part, the Slate 7 has the specs of a Chinese tablet that you could buy for under $100. It just has the HP name thrown on.
If that matters, I suppose it’s nice to know that you can now buy one for $30 less than the original list price .
