This new slate is based on the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 reference design but brings Beats Audio technology to the table and can be already purchased in the US, while Japan will get it on September 26.

NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 has been around since late 2013 and many manufacturers released their own variants, most of them closely following the specs and features of the reference design. While companies like ZOTAC, Gigabyte or PNY simply launched "Tegra Note 7" slates, Hewlett Packard rebranded it as HP Slate 7 Extreme. Now, they have just launched a limited edition variant that features Beats Audio technology.

HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition has most parts similar to the reference design, as you can see below:

  • Processor: quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB DDR3L-1600 RAM; 16 GB eMMC internal storage and microSD slot up to 32 GB
  • Display: 7-inch HD WVA multitouch with 1,280X800 pixels
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 5 MP back with autofocus and HDR
  • Audio: Beats Audio with integrated stereo speakers
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0 with Miracast support, micro HDMI, micro USB 2.0, GPS with GLONASS
  • Operating system: Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.70 pounds; 7.87X4.72X0.37 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: lithium-ion polymer 4,100 mAh; up to 9 hours

This product can be purchased directly from HP for $249.99 USD and comes loaded with a rich set of apps and services, including Box (free 25 GB lifetime storage), HP Connected Drive, Connected Photo, Connected Music, as well as the entire Google suite. On the Japanese market, the HP Slate 7 Beats Special Edition will retail for about $230 USD starting on September 26.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
