HP Slate 8 Pro high-res Android tablet benchmarked with powerful Tegra 4

HP Slate 8 Pro high-res Android tablet benchmarked with powerful Tegra 4
The HP slate that was caught hanging in the GFXBench database yesterday is now fleshed out with a name and a spec sheet. HP Slate 8 Pro seems to take the company's Android tablet efforts in a better direction, after the cheap and rather unimpressive HP Slate 7.

Codenamed Bodhi, this slab is listed to feature an 8" screen, as the name implies, but the interesting revelations start from here on out. That same display is said to be 1600x1200 pixels of resolution - a pretty unorthodox UXGA scheme, which rings in the excellent for a tablet 250ppi pixel density.

Not only that, but the Android 4.2 tablet will be powered by a 1.8 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4 chipset, ensuring scorched benchmarks and top performance. In fact, HP's upcoming tablet managed to clock 5489 Frames (48.6 Fps) on the Egypt 2.5 HD onscreen component, which is pretty close to the record result we registered yesterday with the Xperia Z Ultra that is the first mobile device with a quad-core Snapdragon 800, but clocked at 2.2 GHz.

With expected 2 GB of RAM onboard, microSD slot for storage expansions, and 5000+ mAh battery, the HP Slate 8 Pro sounds like a device that can take on all smaller Android tablets directly, and if HP prices it well, it could also give the venerable second edition of Google's Nexus 7 tablet a run for its money.

About time HP made a whole heart effort instead of just trowing out whatever and seeing if it sticks. Now lets watch if they stand by their creation by offering quality customer service

The Adreno 330 comfortably beats the Tegra 4, and we haven't even seen the Mali T628-MP6/MP8 that are expected to ship in the next Note and Nexus 10.

Hmm although this is not a new Windows 8.1 tablet it shows that the coming new windows 8.1 tablets can have a high resolution touch screens. Folks if the ACER Iconia 3 that just came out had this touch screen it would have been a run away hit and ACER would have the King of windows tablets sales. but ACER put a screen on it that was so bad a retailer told them they were going to remove it from their shelves.WOW did they miss out making some serious cash. 3 windows 8.1 small Tablets are due out for sale this year including the Microsoft Mini surface Tabletr I hope Microsoft's Mini Surface has an HD screen because it will need one if people are to use MS office on such a small screen

Watch some reviews on that device. Many are reporting lag and unresponsive screens.

that's why blazing fast score in benchmark did not tell the whole story. but most likely the fault lies on how sony optimized their software to the hardware and not the hardware fault
