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.

Vivante Vivante GC1000+ Dual-Core: Integrated graphics card for ARM based SoCs.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

This display format is used for small tablets and a few very big smartphones (so big that they are rather tablets). This is for customers who want a small portable tablet with a display which is at least much bigger than usual smartphone displays.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.

76.75%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
