HP Slate 7 Extreme tablet offers ‘console’ gaming

By Alan Ng - Dec 3, 2013

While the Nexus 7, iPad Air and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 appear to be the best tablets that money can buy at the moment, HP appears to have other plans. The company has just launched their HP Slate 7 Extreme tablet on to the market, a device that claims to offer console quality like gaming.

That is quite a bold claim as you can imagine, but HP says it will all be possible thanks to the fact that the HP Slate 7 Extreme will be running on a state of the art Tegra 4 processor that has been built especially to handle the very best in tablet gaming.

Other features of the device include 1GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel rear camera, 16GB of storage, a 4100 battery and MicroSD support to expand storage. It will also come with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, which we’re guessing is upgradable straight to Android 4.4 Kitkat once HP are ready.

Gaming on this tablet will also be enhanced thanks to NVIDIA’s PureAudio technology, while it will also double up as a personal assistant when not gaming with an included stylus pen.

HP has yet to provide detailed proof on just what games this tablet can handle though. We would like to think that the likes of GTA 3 and the forthcoming GTA San Andreas will run with no problems whatsoever.
