‘HP red’ on GFXBench: possible high-performance device

It could be that HP is working on a new Android device with curious high-performance specs. Or it could be nothing. Still, the GFXBench device performance website marked the visit and benchmarking of one such device known only as “HP red”, and listed down the specs for posterity.

HP Slate 8 Pro tipped with Tegra 4 and high-resolution display

We recently saw details on an unannounced HP device sporting a codename of Bodhi. That device was spotted in a benchmark filing report and while there were some details revealed, there was one lingering question as to whether this device was a tablet or smartphone. Well, HP has yet to confirm this either way, however an updated benchmark filing now has this same Bodhi device listed with another name.

HP Slate 21 unveiled with 21.5-inch display and Jelly Bean

We have seen Slate branded devices from HP and we have seen all-in-one desktop computer style devices from HP. As of today however, it looks like the company has merged the two lines with a uniquely sized system running Android. Specifically, this system will be running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, though we suspect the size of the device may be more important here.

HP Slatebook x2 Tablet hands-on

Last week HP announced their second Android tablet, the Slatebook x2, with a full 10-inch display and some serious power under the hood with NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 4. While it won't be available til August, today we're getting up close and personal with the new Tegra-toting tablet. With a Transformer-inspired design, Android 4.2 and more you'll want to take a peek below.

Toshiba Excite X10 Hands-On

This is undoubtedly Toshiba's best tablet to date, and has a great thin form factor. There was no lag while operating the device on the showroom floor, but there weren't many strenuous programs preloaded on it to give it a true test. It comes in at .3 inches thin with an aluminum backing, and is running Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) - it will be updated to Android 4.0 after release. We saw earlier that the Excite X10 had a generous 10.1" 1280x800 display, 1GB RAM, and ran over a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor. There is both a 5MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front facing video cam. As you can see, it runs perfectly smooth in the demo, so the final model will likely be even better. It will launch at $529.99 for the 16GB, and a definite release date is not yet determined. Until now, Toshiba's tablets haven't been quite eye-friendly. But if this new style continues and they drop the price a little bit, they could have a great selling product. [gallery]

Motorola XOOM 2 in 8″ & 10″ Sizes Unveiled

Finally leaked are some amazing spy-shots of the Motorola's two new tablets projected for this holiday season.

LG G-Slate to be released under T-Mobile

Another tablet, the G-Slate, is soon to be released by LG. This device will be 4G capable and also run Android 3.0 Honeycomb optimized for tablet computers. No hardware information has been discussed concerning this tablet thus far, but it will be interesting to directly compare it to the recently released information concerning the Motorola XOOM. Information on the pricing and date of release is extremely thin, but we suspect it will be a first quarter release. T-Mobile's YouTube account luckily posted a video showing off Honeycomb running smoothly on the G-Slate: [youtube 7fiZt6Hws0s] [Via SlashGear]
