Professional Slate. HP launches its Pro Slate 8 tablet for business customers. It has a high-resolution screen and security features alongside a stylus. But is it worth the demanded 600 Euros (~$668)?

We expected a bit more from HP's tablet given its 469 price tag. You can find other tablets that are faster for less, or one that's bigger and more powerful for around the same price. That said, HP's tablet will let you game a bit without throwing up the white flag. It's clearly not targeted as a gaming tablet, but that's pretty obvious from its enterprise-focused features and its accessory pen.

If you really like the idea of capturing strokes that you write on real paper, the HP Pro Slate 8 is worth considering, but $449 is a lot to spend on an 8-inch Android tablet. For $100 less, the Dell Venue 8 7000 has a sharper and more colorful screen, a more attractive design, faster performance and better cameras, along with some of its own IT management options.

The HP is good in many areas, but it can't compete with its biggest rivals when it comes to battery life, performance, screen quality and business features. Its all-round strength certainly makes it a contender, but the Dell and Apple offerings are better.

The HP Pro Slate 8 is a very good Android mini tablet. Although its stylus-related features aren’t quite good enough to justify its price premium over the superb Apple iPad Mini 2, it’s still an excellent choice - especially if you need to deploy in-house apps that take advantage of Android’s relative flexibility over iOS.

7.9":

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.35 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
