A couple of months after it unveiled four new Android 4.2 tablets, HP has made some of them available through its U.S.-based online store. The HP Slate 8 Pro and Slate 10 HD are listed at $329.99 and $299.99 respectively, with the former offering a Tegra 4 processor and an 8-inch 1600x1200-resolution display, and the latter sporting a dual-core 1.2GHz Marvell CPU and an 8-inch 1280x800 panel.

They're joined by the HP Slate 7 Extreme — an NVIDIA Tegra Note device — which is listed at $199.99 but not available to buy directly from the manufacturer. Meanwhile the more affordable Slate 7 Plus is also available, with a Tegra 3 CPU and 1280x800-resolution screen, priced at $149.99.

HP Android tablets now available online


HP should have released these running Windows 8. The 7's are DOA, the 8 cannot compete with the Note 8 and the 10 will be passed up for the Nexus 10.

Stick with laptops and printers.

How do you know what's going to happen with their products? Are you a seer?

Actually, the 2012 Nexus 7 specs are almost identical to the HP Slate 7 Plus, and the Slate 7 is $149. Groupon has the 32GB ver of the Nexus 7 for the same price, but the Slate 7 has an SD card slot, so in my opinion, that's close to a wash.

Beyond that, the display, proc, RAM, and battery are almost identical. The HP has the advantage of a rear-facing 5MP camera. (Not a biggie for most, but it's there)
