I'm guessing those that have a problem with the regular Tegra Note's build quality will want the HP Slate 7 Extreme. It's identical in all of it's specifications except the shell it comes in (at least to my knowledge). If I were in the market, I would be torn between the HP Slate 7 Extreme and the Dell Venue 8 (which costs $180). I also wonder how well these companies keep up with software updates.

Well they didn't do so well last time and this time the market is very hot so I lack some faith in their abilities. But here's to hoping they learned their lessons and are now properly devoting the resources needed.

That's the most important question that should be answered. As far a build quality, nothing to brag about.
And the other question, how good is HP customization fairs the competition? Namely Nexus.

Tegra 4 powering a 1280x800 display? That would totally crush the benchmarks (at least in the graphics department). Now waiting for Snapdragon 600/800 on a qHD screen (because 720p is too mainstream)
I haven't seen any Tegra 4 devices yet.

The Plus doesn't offer anything that the Hisense Sero 7 Pro does, unless there's something they're not telling us yet (smaller/thinner/lighter would be nice).
The Extreme is only a few bucks less than the 2013 Nexus 7 and can't compare spec-wise.
The 8 Pro is only a few bucks less than the LG G Pad 8.3, with lower resolution. I don't know how the Tegra 4 compares to the S4 Snapdragon the LG comes with, but it only has 1gb RAM compared to 2gb.
3 swings, 3 misses by HP. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

performance wise the 8 pro could come out better since tegra 4 is better than snapdragon 600 used in LG Pad 8.3

I wonder if those will ever receive Android 4.4 given that the HP Slate 7 is still running a rather dated version of Android.

With 1 GB of RAM, there's no reason they couldn't. It is all a matter of HP putting forth the resources to make it happen.

Sounds a good strategy. They included microSD slot with Tegra 4.
