HP has finally started selling its seven-inch Android tablet Slate 7 in the United States. Apart from the branding of HP and Beats Audio presence, there is hardly anything interesting about it. With Nexus 7 tablet as its competitor, it has a tough road ahead. If only the company had opted for a HD display, it might have emerged as a decent tablet.

It is also scheduled to be released in the UK on MAy 1. HP Slate 7 features a 7-inch 1024x600p resolution display. It is powered by 1.6GHz Cortex-A9 dual-core processor. The tablet also features 3MP rear camera, VGA front camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. In addition, there is Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 2.1, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
HP has also included support HP ePrint as well as its native Android print solution. The tablet is pre-loaded with full suite of Google applications.
