After several websites released rumors that HP's Slate 7 UK launch would be delayed until June, the company has just released an official UK launch date of May 1st. This date is in line with HP's original scheduled launch date which puts all rumors of delays to rest.
The Slate 7 features a 1024x600 display, 1GB of RAM, and is powered by a dual-core Arm Cortex A9 processor. Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Slate 7 will retail for 129 pounds, but after VAT, the cost will be much closer to 200 pounds.
There is still no word on when the US will see a Slate 7 launch, but with other more powerful 7-inch Android tablets at a better price point already being available, does it really matter?
