In the mood to continue your Fourth of July celebration going with the purchase of a shiny new Android tablet? HP may have just the thing for you, as the company today cut the price of its Android 4.1-powered Slate 7 tablet. The 8GB Slate 7 is now available for $139.99 from HP's online shop, which is a full $30 less than what HP was asking for the device when it launched back in April. HP is also offering a 16GB version of the Slate 7 for $169.99.
Along with the Android 4.1 OS, the HP Slate 7 features a 7-inch 1024x600 display, 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 3-megapixel rear and VGA front cameras, Beats Audio, 1GB RAM and a 3,500mAh battery. It may not be the highest-specced Android tablet on the market, but for a total price of just $140, the Slate 7 could be worth a look for consumers that are interested in picking up a new slate but are also on a tight budget.
