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.

The HP Pro Slate 12 is a wonderful device for a niche audience. Employees who are focused on data entry, and note-taking and illustrators who need digital copies of their doodles will love the Slate and its accompanying Duet Pen. However, if your job is a bit more labor intensive, and you need more power to help get you through the day, the HP Pro Slate 12 is not the right device for you.

While the key feature of the HP Pro Slate 12 is initially very impressive, we can’t help but feel that very few people will bother to use it once the novelty wears off. However, if you’re an old school note taker who vastly prefers writing on paper with a pen, instead of writing directly onto the screen with a stylus, then this could be just the device you’re looking for.

The Pro Slate 12 is a worthy productivity tool for most businesses, with great apps and reliable digitisation tech, even if the Duet Pen can't quite handle the ruled lines of certain design work and it's running a slightly outdated processor and operating system. Nonetheless, there's much more to this device than the latest innovation in note-writing and minute-taking. It's a powerful, versatile and reasonably priced tablet for its screen size. Just make sure it stays out of the sun.

Comment

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 330: Integrated graphics card in some Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs, supports OpenGL ES 3.0Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Qualcomm Snapdragon:

800 MSM8974:

High-end ARM SoC with 4 CPU cores up to 2.3 GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU up to 450 MHz. Based on Qualcomm's Krait 400 architecture and is manufactured in a 28nm HPM process.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z3735F: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.
