We just got some hands-on time with HP's first major tablet release in quite a while, the HP Slate 7, here at MWC 2013. Watch our video to find out what it's like to hold the newest 7-inch Android...

HPs Slate 7 ist jetzt zwar offiziell verfügbar wie angekündigt, hat aber 3 bis 4 Wochen Lieferzeit. Und das bei einem absolut beliebigen 7" Android 4 Tablet mit mittelmäßiger Ausstattung. Ein erstes Hands-on vom Mobile World Congress war schon nicht besonders beeindruckend. Und ob beats audio mit zwei winzigen Lautsprechern auf der Unterseite nun wirklich so ein überragendes Klangerlebnis bringt? Was haben sich die HP Manager dabei eigentlich gedacht? Nach einem gelungenen Neustart in die Welt der Mobilgeräte sieht das für mich nicht aus. Wenigstens haben sie nicht den albernen Versuch unternommen, das Android System mit einer eigenen Oberfläche zu veredeln. Je mehr Hersteller erfolgreich darauf verzichten, desto eher hören Samsung und HTC damit auf.

They own webOS and could, if they also made impressive hardware, make it big again. They could be like apple or blackberry in proprietarynessocity but instead they make another terrible android tablet

Looks fine to me. Not sure what all the complaining is about. Probably just people still angry about the TouchPad (understandable) who think this will be the same (not understandable).

Nice heads up Michael. Sounds like a fairly underwhelming piece of kit. hehe As an aside, I wonder what make of Cutaway Classical Guitar that is on your press badge? Looks like it could be possibly a Takamine or E series Ramirez, though without seeing the headstock, I couldn't say for certain. :)

It's cheap people will buy it. Not everyone cares about monster specs

So rather than making a premium windows RT tablet, you make a piece of crap android tablet with pitiful specs to compete in a saturated and lackluster low end android market.

Tab is pretty smooth and the build wuality is very nice :D if you want is very smooth you could always root it but i havnt rooted it yet and i got it pretty cheap from the U.K its currently running android 4.1 but im hoping for future OTA updates...

Just hold it on its sides? and why the top well what if you go bike riding with a sports backpack that has headphone jack if you set it on the bottom or sides inside the backpack where the head phone jack is it will bend and mess up the i headphone jack and the slate's jack?? i believe thats' the reason why alot of people complained with the headphone jack messing up on the 2nd gen ipod touch =/

Considering the touchpad history.... And a broken HP netbook of mine....Im skeptic with this one..

Please can we have another crappy android tablet on the market? Pretty please? Thank you HP my prayers been answered!

If it ran WebOS(I can't believe HP just sold WebOS to LG!), it might have a hook for buyers, but as it is, it's just another generic Android tablet. I'd stay Nexus if I was looking for one.

Doubt it. I'll use GBP for this example (but it can be replaced with Euros). In the UK, A Nexus 7 16GB is £159. In North America its $199. Companies usually adjust to currency differences.

yeah, nothing different. Just worse because its from HP

Looks awful. And beats audio is not a selling point
Report spam or abuse
This looks way to much like some of the original android tablets. Also resembles a cheap scam type tablet... I'm sure it works well but that alone bothers me.
Report spam or abuse
Meh. The only big difference is that the Nexus is a little more powerful. The Slate 7 costs less, has a rear camera and is 1.6 GHz instead of 1.2 :)

you do have a camera on your smart phone, right? what difference does it make if the tablet has a camera or not ?
Report spam or abuse
Its practically a worse nexus 7 with a camera
Report spam or abuse
Lol, using Beats audio as a gimmick to steer customers away from Google's Nexus 7. I'd get the Nexus instead of this.

Why would HP put the headphone jack on top, if you're watching something or listening to music, the wire will hang over the screen. Sure it's better for pocket listening but who puts their 7inch tablet in their pocket as an MP3 player?!
Report spam or abuse
its a stock android exprence so thats always good to know but it does have some bad points i am used to the nexus 4 and some other "good" phones out there and the screen just feels "weird" but thats just me its not the thinest or lightest tab out there but its not bad :D thanks for reading my comment hope this helps :DD LOL such a long comment i had to post it 2 times

Awesome, may i ask if it's good in performance? fast,fluid? or laggy? Would u recommend everyone to get this if they are looking for a budget tab?
Report spam or abuse

Would be a great budget tab for around £100-ish but if its going to be closer to the £150 mark you may as well go for the nexus 7...
