“Slate 7 has been included in product roadmap of HP India,” he noted. There is no word on the pricing or exact release date at this moment but considering Slate 7 is a budget device, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it priced around INR 12-14K in the country.
To remind you, HP Slate 7 was originally announced for global markets in February this year. It features a 7-inch 1024x600p resolution display, 1.6GHz dual-core processor, and Android 4.1. The tablet also packs 8GB of storage, Beats Audio integration and 1GB of RAM.
It is important to note here that HP recently reduced the price of Slate 7 in the United States, where it was originally launched for $169.99. It would be interesting to see if HP brings Slate 7 to India at the reduced price. Considering the impending launch of new Nexus tablet and the recent introduction of Kindle Fire HD in the country, it would be a wise move for the company to price Slate 7 aggressively.
