MWC 2013 - We have some hands-on time with HP's Slate 7 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and if you haven't already read about it, HP's Slate 7 tablet is the company's first Android-powered device.

We have Johannes Knapp at the event, who grabbed one of the Slate 7's to take a look at it, above. He notes the 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch 1024x600 display, VGA front-facing camera and a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera. The soft-touch back feels nice, and there's some HP and Beats Audio logos on the rear. Looking around the Slate 7 itself, on the bottom we find two speakers and a microUSB port for charging and syncing, on the right side we find the volume rocker, on top we have the power button and microSD card slot as well as a 3.5-inch headphone/speaker jack and on the left - nothing.

The build quality feels nice, the Slate 7 runs Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean out of the box which is nice - there you have it! Keep checking back for some more MWC content.
