After its decision to discontinue the production and development of its WebOS mobile platform, HP is getting back in to the tablet game with its HP Slate 7 powered by Android.

As the name implies, the HP Slate 7 will be a 7-inch tablet with a display resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels with a pixel density of 170 pixels per inch.

The Slate 7 will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and will be powered by a 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9 dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM. It will have 8 GB of internal storage with support for microSD expansion of up to 32 GB.

It will also feature a 3.15-megapixel camera at the back that is capable of capturing 720p videos at 30 frames per second. A secondary VGA camera is placed at the front of the device for video calling. The Slate 7 will also come with the usual specs common in most Android devices these days which include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth v2.1.

This tablet will also feature Beats Audio sound enhancement just like other devices from HP.

The HP Slate 7 is expected to arrive by April 2013 with a suggested retail price of $169, putting it in direct competition with the Asus-made Google Nexus 7.
