HP outs the Slate 7: a $170 Android tablet with Beats Audio

HP is cozying up to Google lately, introducing a Chromebook, and now it throws in an Android tablet for a good measure. It just lifted the veil over the HP Slate 7 tablet, which runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and as fitting for HP sports Beats Audio.

The specs include a 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, 1024x600 pixels 7" screen, 3 MP camera on the back, 8 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for its expansion.

If you are scoffing are the hardware, the price will make you grin with delight, as that's been HP's goal all along - to make a very affordable slate, cheaper than even the Nexus 7. How does $169.99 sound to you? Pretty good, and it will be available in April with about five hours of battery life.
