Reviews for the HP Slate 10 HD 3500eg
Single character. Our bright red test sample of the 10-inch tablet HP Slate 10 HD 3500eg is a special edition that will not be available in Europe. Since it is identical with the normal silver-colored version in every other respect, we put it through our practical test.

Alas, this isn't enough to lift the HP Slate 10 HD from the mire of mediocrity. Although it promises much, with its well-priced 3G modem and data bundle, it's simply too slow and frustrating in use for us to recommend.

HP has decided to keep it simple this time with its new HP Slate 10 HD 3500eg model. In terms of shape, it has a basic black framed rectangle panel with silver rounded back case making it as comfortable as it could be in hand. There are only 3 physical buttons; power, volume up and down. Its 10 inch a-Si TFT LCD WXGA display is attractive especially with the 16:10 ultra wide aspect ratio.
The HP Slate 10 HD 3500eg is powered by a Marvel SOC PXA986 dual-core microprocessor clocked at 1.2 GHz and 1 GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM. This coupled with the Vivante GC1000 GPU, allows the tablet to perform well for gaming and other applications. A storage capacity of 16 GB is pretty sufficient and it can be tripled using the MicroSD support capability.
Audio quality is good as there is support for BeatsAudio combined with the integrated stereo speakers. The HP Slate 10 HD 3500eg has a 5 MP autofocus rear camera and a 2 MP front camera. Battery life is good with a 7000 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery.
