HP sneaks out five models of new tablet line, all available now

updated 04:15 pm EST, Tue December 3, 2013

Products initially announced in September for November release

Without much fanfare and very little marketing buildup, HP has commenced sales on four previously-announced tablets, which it previously said would be available in November in time for the holiday season. The four Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) tablets are the HP Slate7 Plus, the HP Slate7 Extreme, the HP Slate8 Pro, and the HP Slate10 HD. All of the tablets in the new line are available for purchase and shipment today.

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.

The Slate10 HD is also 1280x720 with the same processor as the Slate8 Pro. Screen size is boosted to 10 inches.

The Slate7 Plus retails for $200, with the Slate 8 Pro costing $330. The Slate 10HD retails for less than the Slate8 Pro at $300.
