The folks over at the FCC have been on the receiving end of a couple of tablets from HP, which means we could be looking at new Slates in the coming holiday season. For starters, there is the HP Slate 10 HD tablet that will run on a Marvell PXA986 processor, where it will be accompanied by a 1,280 x 800 pixel display. Hmmm, that does not sound quite right, especially when you have the “HD” bit in its name. In other words, the HP Slate 10 HD tablet is a 10” Android-powered tablet that will target the budget conscious, while sporting some HP extras such as Beats Audio. The HP Slate 10 HD is tipped for a November rollout.
As for the other tablet, it does seem to be the HP 10 1900, and that is about all we know about it other than the fact that it supports cellular data on GSM and WCDMA networks, alongside connectivity options such as 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. Other specifications that we know about the HP Slate 10 HD is that it will arrive with a microSD card slot, front and rear cameras, and Wi-Fi-only or 4G models.
We do wonder just how these tablets will shape up by the time they hit the market, as their previous round of tablet releases did not exactly light up the industry.
