The HP Slate 7 Android tablet didn't quite make our list of the best Android tablet for the price — that prize still goes to the Nexus 7 — but it's a wee bit more palatable now that HP has shaved $30 off the top. You get that discount up front, too, which always is a bonus.
That doesn't necessarily make it a better tablet, though. "In reality its an amalgamation of miscalculations that come out as a disaster of a device and a waste of silicon and dollars" is how our own Derek Kessler put things in his official review.
If you're looking for an inexpensive Android tablet, well, the Slate 7 fits that bill. But for another $60, you can still get so much more.
