The last time HP launched the TouchPad to compete against the iPad, it couldn’t survive the competition. But today the American company re-entered the tablet market with what seems to be a more sensible approach by announcing its first-ever Android tablet at the Mobile World Congress. Called the Slate 7, the tablet is priced around $169 (Rs 9,126 approximately) and will first hit the US markets sometime in April.

The 7-inch tablet runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a slightly modified UI and is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor. It includes features like a 3-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front camera, Beats Audio for enhanced audio output and an HP ePrint app that will let a user use Wi-Fi to print any document or picture on the tablet using an HP printer. The tablet is encased in a stainless steel frame with a soft-touch back and weighs in 368 grams. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy A42 5G full specifications and features revealed
It’s not clear yet if or when HP will launch the tablet in India, but when it does it will have to face some stiff competition from local 7-inch tablet brands available in the market.
