HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition pictured, might be released soon
HP is indeed getting ready to launch a new Android KitKat tablet called Slate 7 Beats Special Edition - as we told you at the beginning of this month.

The Slate 7 Beats Special Edition looks a lot like the HP Slate 7 Extreme (which is based on Nvidia’s Tegra Note 7). However, the new device is red, and prominently features Beats Audio logos on its front and back.

HP is currently offering a “360 degree panoramic view” of the Slate 7 Beats Special Edition via its official US website, but it doesn’t mention any of the tablet’s capabilities. Still, we assume the device has about the same specs as the Slate 7 Extreme: a 7-inch IPS display with 800 x 1200 pixels, 5MP rear camera, quad-core 1.8GHz Nvidia Tegra processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal memory.

HP didn’t say when the Slate 7 Beats Special Edition would be available, and neither for what price. Even so, we’re thinking that the new slate should go on sale in the US in the near future. Any takers?

Make an 8 incher with a nice screen and SD800(more than enough) and I'm sold.

Even though it's a low-end device, the specs on this thing just make me sad...

design wise it is very similar to Slate 7 Extreme. maybe they just replace the speaker inside with beats audio one.

$179 or $199. HP prices their tablets low and this is barely an upgrade over it's predecessor.

It isn't an upgrade at all compared to the Slate 7 Extreme. The only thing that's different is the addition of Beats, and since brands make up a rather large part of the cost of devices on the user's end, I wouldn't expect this to cost less than $250 (the Slate 7 Extreme is $200).
