Company broadens tablet offerings

HP has expanded its tablet offerings with several new models powered by Nvidia's new Tegra 4 hardware, the Slate8 Pro and Slate7 Extreme. Both take advantage of Tegra 4's quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor and 72-core GPU, with limited customizations to the stock Android OS.

The Slate7 Extreme features a seven-inch display in a widescreen format with 1280x720 resolution, while an included stylus can be used for handwritten notes. When listening to music or watching videos, sound is output from dual front-facing speakers.

The Slate8 Pro switches to a larger eight-inch display configured in a 4:3 aspect ratio, with a much higher resolution of 1600x1200 pixels. The device lacks the front-firing speakers of the Slate7 Extreme, though the company promises robust sound thanks to Beats Audio.

HP will announce pricing details closer to the tablets' expected arrival in November.
