HP said to be prepping a 10 inch Android tablet featuring a quad-core processor
There is some speculation that HP is working on a 10 inch Android flavored tablet, powered by a 1.8GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor. The tablet, said to be named the HP SlateBook 10 X2, was discovered by a German web site that discovered the slate on the AnTuTu Benchmark website. Android 4.2.2 is said to be pre-installed out of the box.

Unfortunately, the rumor did not come with a launch date or a possible price. If the rumored name of the device seems familiar, that could be due to the HP Envy X2, a Windows 8 powered slab. Meanwhile, the Palo Alto based tech giant has just released the Android powered HP Slate 7 that is priced at just $169.99. This slate (or Slate, if you prefer) offers a 7 inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600, and is powered by a dual-core 1.6GHz processor. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage that can be expanded using the microSD slot that is aboard the tablet. A 3MP rear-facing camera and VGA front facing snapper are on the tablet while the device has Beats Audio aboard.

Hopefully, we will see HP launch this 10 incher soon, which would seem to be the next step for the company to take if it wants to grow out a portfolio of Android tablets.

HP makes good printers that steal your money for ink, but they make horrible Computers. They bought Compaq for business and ruined that line ,as well as buying Webos and ruining that brand!

Meg Whitman is an idiot that has no clue on how to run a tech company. If they would have had any vision the Compaq Pocket PC would have been a tablet and a phone line of products, and they ruined that brand!

Meg cut R&D and sent 10k jobs packing off to China when she 1st took over. They are dead and uninspiring with no innovation. Not offering a windows brand tablet with their PC line is further proof Meg is lost.

I owned the Evo, Photon, and now the Galaxy S3 so don't think that I hate Android, I would just buy an Asus Android tablet before I bought an HP!

I own the NX9420 Note book that was not as good as it could have been and wish I had went the ASUS route.

Too bad because at one point they were an ok company.

My hp desktop is now 20 years old and still running - only had to put a new hard drive in it like 10 years ago. I'd take a chance on their tablet. I was looking forward to an hp phone awhile back but that obviously fell through rather quickly.

They should have developed the Touchpad with Android and it would have been way more successful. Glad they learned.
