HP today announced several tablets that are scheduled to launch before the holidays. And unlike the Slate 7, which the company showcased earlier this year, these new tablets are aimed at various consumer groups from entry-level users to those that have a higher demand in terms of performance.

For up is the Slate 8 Pro, which as the name suggests is an 8-inch tablet. To be specific, the tablet has a 7.98-inch display that offers a 4:3 aspect ratio. It sports a Tegra 4 processor and an 8MP camera at the back and a 2MP camera at the front. It also has a microSD slot, micro HDMI output and a micro-USB port for charging.

HP has also updated its Slate 7 tablet by going HD and at the same time giving it a 10-inch brother with the Slate 10 HD. Both tablets have the same design with specs including a 1280×800 IPS display, a nine-hour battery, a dual-core processor, Beats Audio technology and optional 4G connectivity.

For those who love the HP Slate 7 but are not that satisfied with its performance, there’s the HP Slate 7 Extreme. The tablet packs a Tegra 4 processor and comes with a stylus that can be stowed away in a slot on the side of the device. There’s 1GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card slot.

If Android isn’t your cup of tea, HP also introduced two new Windows tablets. On the one hand, you’ve got the HP Pavilion 11 X2, which replaces the Envy X2 hybrid from last year. The tablet sports Intel’s latest Bay trail chips (either Celeron or Pentium), as well as 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB flash memory. The screen on the Pavilion 11 X2 is an 11-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. It comes with a keyboard dk that has a built in battery.

Last but certainly not the least, is the HP Omni 10. Just like the Pavilion 11 X2, this tablet is also powered by Intel’s Bay Trail chip. It has 64GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM, a micro-HDMI port and an 8MP rear snapper as well as a 2MP camera at the front. The 10-inch display has a 1920×1200 pixel resolution.
