In this industry, every device strives to find its place and differentiating factors in the market. We’ve seen some key interesting differences from the HP Slate 7 Extreme tablet that will probably attract many people.
Powerful and Affordable
Being equipped with the latest and greatest Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, the tablet is assured of its computing and gaming performance, providing users with the best possible user experience and smoothness on the device. This has to be coupled with the optimized Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Android Operating System for familiar operations by users. There could be possibilities of the OS to be updated to a later Android version in the near future. Even with all these goodness packed within a 7 inch package, this 16GB Wi-Fi version retails at only 299SGD, beating the Nexus 7 hands down in both affordability and processing capabilities.

Front facing speakers
The HP Slate 7 Extreme tablet is made to be an entertainment device with the various features that comes with it. The most obvious and welcomed feature of the tablet that speakers are placed at the front of the device, where sounds will be channeled directly to your ears. Other than the HP Slate 7 Extreme tablet, I don’t think any current Android tablets has got their speakers placed this strategically for entertainment consumption. Moreover, the tablet is said to be built in with Nvidia ProAudio technology which improves the overall sound quality.

Instead of optimizing the MicroUSB MHL interface for video output, HP thought that the adoption of MHL interface via MicroUSB port could be too niche as users will need to buy an additional MHL converter. That is why they have chosen to go with a MicroHDMI port instead, which in fact transmit digital video signals just like any other HDMI cables. The MicroHDMI interface is getting more common, with the latest Surface and Surface 2 tablets as well as BlackBerry 10 smartphones utilizing them.
