Starting off, we have the new HP Slate 7 Extreme, a 7-inch upgrade to the original HP Slate 7. The device features an NVIDIA Tegra 4 SoC along with NVIDIA's PureAudio technology to power its front-facing and rear bass-reflex speakers. The display features a resolution of 1280x800 and the company has included a stylus to help make navigation easy.

Up next, we have the new HP Slate Pro, an 8-inch class Android-based tablet that features a 1600x1200-pixel screen in a 4:3 ratio. The new Slate Pro also runs an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and features a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera, while a two-megapixel shooter located on the front handles all the self-portraits you want to take.

Finally, we have two new Slate HD models in both 7-inch and 10-inch form factors. Both feature a 1280x800 screen as well as LTE connectivity. 200MB of free data is included each month through T-Mobile with the ability to add a full broadband service plan if the customer chooses. Beats Audio technology handles the sound and it is suspected that an NVIDIA Tegra 4 also powers the device.
