HP offers new 12-inch and 8-inch Android powered tablets for business use
HP has introduced two new Android tablets for the enterprise. The HP Pro Slate 12 features a 12.3-inch display protected by Gorilla Glass 4, and offers a 1600 x 1200 resolution. That works out to a rather low 163ppi pixel density. With a 4:3 aspect ratio, the screen more closely resembles a piece of paper than the usual 16:9 seen on most Android slates. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. The tablet offers dual front-facing speakers and the "Duet Pen".

The pen will allow you to draw on the tablet screen and on paper. With the HP Folio case, you can write on paper and have that information transferred to the tablet. This technology uses four microphones on the slate that can hear ultra-high sounds emitted from the pen. HP is the first company to employ this technology which was devised by Qualcomm.

HP also has a 7.9-inch Android powered tablet called the HP Pro Slate 8. The 2048x1536 resolution matches the Apple iPad mini's 7.9-inch screen, and Gorilla Glass 4 helps protect the display. The pixel density on the Pro Slate 8 is 326ppi.

Neither device has hit HP's online store yet, but we do know that the HP Pro Slate 12 is priced at $569 while the HP Pro Slate 8 will cost you $449. Both tablets are indeed available now from HP.
