By -

HP Slate 7 H D is one of the bets of HP to come into force in the consumer market of the tablets during this Christmas. A team Android to seven inches that sports a balanced set of features. For example, with this team enjoy 16 GB of memory (expandable via a card MicroSD ), cameras in the front and back and the ability to connect to 3G mobile networks via a card MicroSIM . All this at a competitive price of 220 euros , making it a very attractive option for the Kings. This equipment will be available from the last week of November in stores and specialty shops. We tell you all the details of the HP Slate 7 HD .

Design and Display

The usual note of the consignment of new tablets from HP for consumption is a simple design, which is not particularly attractive but offers a final result quite light and thin enough to be comfortable to handle.Specifically, measures of HP Slate 7 HD are 201.3 x 120 x 9.9 mm (just under Brand centimeters and weighs 430 grams . The most interesting detail of this design is its housing be available in both silver and in red , and has the same feel nice that we had experienced in the HP Slate 7 .

As for the screen, panel 7-inch IPS has a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels which is sufficient to display with good detail the contents of the computer. Yes, without much fanfare, but is that the purpose of HP is bringing to market a functional device with an affordable price.


The HP Slate 7 HD has a dual camera . On the back we find a target resolution of 5 megapixel and the ability to record video in high quality 1080p. This camera has autofocus and serve to muddle through when immortalize our favorite moments in pictures, but it is true that not reach the level they are achieving through smartphone cameras. More interesting is the front camera with a resolution of 2 megapixel and recording video at 720p , able to deliver a good performance when making video calls with apps likeHangouts or Skype .

Memory and power

HP has chosen to integrate this device 16GB eMMC memory format. It is a pretty competitive ability with which we can save a good number of apps and multimedia content. Also, for those users who need more space you can also draw on a card MicroSD up to 32 GB, a very interesting option for users who want to store videos and movies. In addition, the U.S. company also offers 25 GB of online storage for free on the platform Box . In the field of power, the HP Slate 7 HD has a processor ARM Cortex dual core with a capacity of 1.2 GHz per core. This chip is attached to a memory of 1 GB RAM to complete an acceptable set. Yes, this memory can be short if we use many applications at the same time and in the case of the most powerful games.

Operating System and Applications

The operating system chosen for e l HP Slate 7 HD is Android in its version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This is a review of the system that incorporates some significant improvements like faster browsing or improved Google Now. The voice assistant is a learning tool for our tastes and the use we make of the phone to provide relevant information in the form of cards. For example, if we get to mail the boarding pass from a flight directly on the tablet will see information about the time of departure or if the plane is having some sort of delay. Or we can get information about the next game in our favorite football team. Apart from the new features of the platform, it should be noted that this is the dominant system for tablets (although competing with the iPad) and has more than a million apps available through its official store. Some highlights include apps for messaging names like Line, Flipboard for the latest news or Evernote to take notes and store them on your computer. They also highlight Google’s own apps like Google Maps, Gmail and YouTube mail to see our favorite videos. In short, it is a very complete ecosystem that offers many benefits to users who bet on Android.


One of the highlights of the HP Slate 7 HD is equipped standard with a 3G module to connect to the network in our travels and journeys. That opens up a universe of possibilities as the tablets that only have WiFi are quite diminished its usefulness in the moment you leave home or do not have a close connection point. Activities such as checking the mail, talk to a contact or watch videos in the network can take a well-needed at the time in which we operate. And besides, the HP Slate 7 HD includes this functionality while maintaining a very affordable price. In addition to this connection, the tablet also features free WiFi to connect to the Internet at home and Bluetooth to transmit information through compatible devices, such as wireless speakers. We also found interesting the presence of the connection Miracast , a technology that allows us to transmit the contents of tablet directly to a compatible device like a TV through WiFi . On the other hand, the physical connections include MicroSIM card slot and card slot MicroSD (up to 32 GB).also a MicroUSB port and a slot 3.5 mm headphone. For multimedia playback, the U.S. company has included technology Beats Audio stereo speakers on the tablet, so you get more volume on playback of our videos and movies.

Autonomy, price and reviews

For now, we are waiting to know the official figure airtime reaches the HP Slate 7 HD . Definitely one of the highlights of the tablet HP is its price. Its 220 euros makes it a very affordable, especially taking into account that includes 3G connection to connect to the Internet anywhere. As for its features, there are none that stand out from the others, but instead HP has not orphaned any aspect of this team. With all this, we can enjoy a team with a decent screen, using two cameras (front better compared) and store a lot of multimedia files on your 16 GB of available space. It will be available in the market from the last week of November, and by its nature can become a perfect gift for Christmas.
