This is a great play by HP. It’s not a knock-off Android O/S, it’s Jellybean with all the goodness of Google Now, Gmail, Drive, Maps, etc. These other el cheapo devices out there are giving Android a bad name. Plus, many techies want to root the device as soon as they buy it, which is cool, but I love that this is now a straight consumer play, with devices that work fantastic straight out of the box.
The HP Slate will add a micro SD slot and a rear facing 3mp camera. Add that to the 1.6GHz dual core processor, and Beats audio and it should rock. The pixel density is less than the Google Nexus 7, so hold both in your hands before you make the purchase.
