HP plans to launch two new Android tablets aimed at business users. The HP Pro Slate 12 features s 12.3 inch, 1600 x 1200 pixel display, while the HP Pro Slate 8 has a smaller, but sharper 2048 x 1536 pixel screen.

Don’t get confused by the name — the Pro Slate 8 is different from the HP Slate 8 Pro which launched earlier this year.

The new tablets are both part of the HP business tablet family, and both feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processors, 2GB of RAM,  front-facing stereo speakers, Android 4.4 KitKat, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, front and rear cameras, and microSD card slots.

Both models work with an HP Duet pen, which the folks at Notebook Italia note could be a version of Qualcomm’s ultrasound pen which uses sound to let you enter text on a tablet without even touching the screen.

Other features include a microUSB 2.0 port with support for HDMI output with a SlimPort adapter, an audio jack, and an option for mobile data with a nanoSIM card.

The larger model is said to have a 12.3 inch screen, a 37 Wh battery, and 32GB of storage, while the HP Pro Slate 8 has a 7.7 inch display and 16GB of storage. There’s not as much information about that model though — HP has already removed most details about that tablet from its website.

  1. The slate is powered by ultra-mobile Snapdragon 801 chip, runs Android, and it is still heavier than Surface Pro 3 which is a full-blown PC.
