HP's Slate 7
In Barcelona, HP introduced its first Android tablet, the Slate 7. Its 7-inch display features 1,024x600 pixel resolution. The tablet will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and sports a dual-core ARM A9 processor. It also features the ePrint app to print from your tablet over wi-fi, and Beats Audio software to boost your music.
Obviously, its biggest selling point is its price at $169 — undercutting the prices of the current 7-inch tablets produced by major manufacturers.

The more powerful 7-inch A3000 will be powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor and a promise of " extensive memory". Its screen has a resolution of 1,024x600 and the option of 3G connectivity.
The 10-inch S6000 promises a quad-core MediaTek processor and a "substantial battery" in a 20-ounce package. Resolution is 1,280x800, but the price tag is expected to be very competitive.
