HP Pro Slate 8 comes packing beautiful metal body and design (hands-on)

 

Not to be confused with the earlier HP Slate Pro 8, this Android-powered enterprise tablet comes packing a high-resolution display, metal body and ultrasound stylus.

HP Slate 8 Pro boasts highest resolution of any 8-inch tablet (hands on)

 

The tablet features a 4:3 aspect ratio and houses Nvidia's Tegra 4 processor.

Expensive; No haptic feedback; Mediocre pen software ; The long-lasting HP Pro Slate comes with a pen for beaming notes from regular paper to the tablet, but it's outperformed by cheaper Android competitors.

HP Pro Slate 8 Tablet Review

 

Professional Slate. HP launches its Pro Slate 8 tablet for business customers. It has a high-resolution screen and security features alongside a stylus. But is it worth the demanded 600 Euros (~$668)?

Stylish casing, Decent stereo speakers, Micro-SD slot, Good Wi-Fi reception, Camera with good color reproduction, Innovative Duet-Pen, Decent IPS screen, Good system performance, Useful battery life, Security features

Casing's stiffness, Relatively quiet speakers, Note on paper feature error-prone, High price

The Pro Slate 8 is a business tablet with an innovative digitizer and security features, for which, however, HP demands a steep price.

HP Pro Slate 8

 

The latest tablet from HP joins a growing band of business devices aiming to find a home in the office while taking a bite out of the all-conquering iPad's market share.

Smart, premium design ; Excellent quality screen ; Good overall performance

Camera quality is disappointing ; Battery life could be better ; A touch pricier than its main rival

HP Pro Slate 8 comes packing beautiful metal body and design (hands-on)

 

BARCELONA -- Announced in January of this year, this meant-for-enterprise tablet from HP may not seem like something meant for the office given its beautiful looks. It's not what you'd expect to find in a workplace environment, given its sleek...

HP not supporting Slate 8 Pro with latest Android

 

Still no current Android version (Kitkat) for existing Slate 8 Pro. Don't purchase if you expect updates, look elsewhere.

good but touchpad was much better

 

I bought two touch pads. My wife's died. She has mine, and I bought the 8 pro. Its OK.why doesn't the HP circle on the front have a function? Like the same spot on the touchpad? The border around the screen seems way to big. Wasted screen space. Its...
