    HP introduces the Slate 6 & Slate 7 Android Tablets.
    [​IMG]


    After is 2011 debacle, today HP sends a strong message declaring its return. The company will be launching two Android powered tablets, the Slate 6 & Slate 7 in February. The biggest surprise actually comes from the fact that India is at the front of line and will be the first country to receive these two models.

    Details at this point indicate a screen size of 6" & 7" respectively. Both tablets will run Android 4.2.2 with 16 GB internal memory with Micro SD Card expansion + Voice & 3G. The Slate 6 is slightly less than 9mm thick while the Slate 7 is 9.5 millimeters.

    HP already commands 32% of India's PC market and should leverage its vast network to do a mega roll out.

    HP confidence in the Indian Market mixed with some competitive pricing should blow the entry level wide open which has been stagnating due to lack of competition.

    While the renders posted look impressive and appealing, there is still no word on the what Hardware will drive these devices. Qualcomm, Mediatek NVidia & even Intel are contenters at this point.

    Yep. It's gonna be a highly skinned version of Android (with supposedly no Play Store support), and only one physical button (back button) on the screen like the Asha.

    Here's a spy pic -

    It's called Nokia Normandy in the testing phase.
