HP has unveiled four new Android tablets today. The new models are all Slate branded and range in size from 7-inches to 10-inches. The specs have yet to be fully detailed, however HP has said two of them will be powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and two of them will have 4G cellular connectivity. With that in mind, all four of these tablets are expected to arrive in November.

Beginning first with the Tegra 4 models -- these include the Slate 7 Extreme and the Slate 8 Pro. The Slate 7 Extreme is touted as being a tablet with a "mind to maximize your mojo." That bit aside, the Extreme will have a NVIDIA PureAudio technology with front-facing speakers, a bass-reflex port and integrated stylus. Other features of the Extreme will include a 1280 x 800 resolution and 5 megapixel rear-facing camera.

The Pro will feature a 7.98-inch display with a 4:3 aspect ratio at 1600 x 1200. This one will also ship with goodies to include Kingston Office, HP File Manager, HP ePrint and HP Connected Photo for "producing and managing content." Other features of the Slate 8 Pro include microHDMI and microSD as well as a 2 megapixel front-facing camera and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera.

The next two models are the Slate 7 HD and the Slate 10 HD. Both of these models will have a display resolution of 1280 x 800, along with a microSD memory card slot and front and rear-facing cameras. These models will also have Google Play access as well as Beats Audio and the previously mentioned 4G connectivity. Those opting for the 4G models will be able to get 200MB of T-Mobile 4G data for free for two years. Of course, anything above and beyond that 200MB limit will come with an extra price.

With that, it now looks like HP has left everyone waiting for some pricing details. Not to mention, something a bit more specific in terms of a release date.

    what is it with HP and their frankly mediocre screens? I’m just itching to buy a Slate, but I’d feel like a chump getting one what with the nexus 7 and 10’s full HD 1920×1080 screens. What, corporate users never watch movies?!

    HP is still in the game? Sad, as they never got the tablet market right and still haven’t (likely never will).
