HP slashes prices of the Slate 7 tablet

HP has just made a price reduction of $30 for its low end budget tablet, the Slate 7. Featuring Android 4.1.1 and a very unattractive specs sheet, the HP tablet has failed to gain any traction in the market. This explains the price cut and we can expect a few more in the coming weeks. But the revised pricing certainly makes it an interesting option considering that it’s about $60 cheaper than the Nexus 7 now. The 16GB Slate 7 costs $170, down from $200.

The Slate 7 was introduced as a low cost replacement to the ASUS made Nexus 7. But inevitably, the poor hardware (more importantly the display resolution) led to the tablet being a complete failure. So we won’t be surprised to see a clearance sale coming up soon similar to what the company did with the TouchPad.

If you are able to look over the fact that it has a slightly below par display and runs on a relatively older version of Jelly Bean, the Slate 7 won’t disappoint. Also to make things more attractive, the tablet comes with a microSD card slot and a rear camera, both absent from the Nexus 7.
