HP’s launching a new 7 inch Android tablet called the HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition. The company’s been working on it for a while , and as you’d expect the tablet features Beats Audio.
The rest of the tablet’s specs make it clear that this is a modified version of last year’s Slate 7 Extreme, which is a tablet based on the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 reference design.
The HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition is available for $250.
The tablet has a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
It runs Android 4.4 KitKat and comes with an NVIDIA DirectStylus pen for writing or drawing. Other features include a micro HDMI port, microSD card reader, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS.
The tablet has a 4100mAh battery for up to 9 hours of run time and sports stereo front-facing speakers.
The HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition also goes on sale in Japan starting September 26th. It’s expected to sell for 25,000 yen, or about $233 US.
