HP released the Slate 7 over three years ago.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 16 gigabytes, the Slate 7 has a relatively average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Slate 7.

We compared all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad[plb_829095_price] is also worth considering.

Two Processor Coress

Compared to the other 218 tablets that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the Slate 7 is a two processor cores tablet which is average.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2 processor cores tablet computers currently available including the Samsung GT-P5110 Galaxy Tab 2[plb_1498019_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other 3MP rear camera resolution tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung GT-P5110 Galaxy Tab 2[plb_1498019_price] is also worth considering.

If this HP tablet rear camera resolution (numeric) is too low for you then you might want to look at the Samsung SM-T337 Galaxy Tab 4[plb_2232356_price] (3.1MP and higher rated).
