The HP Slate 7 boasts a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024x600 pixels and is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. The tablet comes with 8GB built-in storage, Beats Audio speakers, micro USB port, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA camera on the front for video-calling.
HP's first Android tablet is powered by ARM Dual Core Cortex-A9 1.6 GHz processor and offers Google services like Google Now, Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive and Google+ Hangouts.
"To address the growing interest in tablets among consumers and businesses alike, HP will offer a range of form factors and leverage an array of operating systems," said Alberto Torres, senior vice president, Mobility Global Business Unit, HP.
"Our new HP Slate7 on Android represents a compelling entry point for consumer tablets, while our ground-breaking, business-ready HP ElitePad on Windows® 8 is ideal for enterprises and governments. Both deliver the service and support people expect from HP."
The tablet is priced aggressively in the market to take on other contenders like Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD. The tablet is priced at $169 and will be available in the market in April.
