A Couple Of 10-inch HP Tablets Surface At FCC

Thanks to FCC website, we now know a little bit more about two new HP. Now we see that HP has pushed two different models through the FCC, though not much is known about them. Other than at least one will run Android, the details are light.

First off is the HP Slate 10 HD, which sports a 1280 x 800 10-inch screen and Marvel PXA986 ARM SoC. Liliputing is reporting that it will also have Beats Audio, which could be the cause for the red housing. The Slate 10 will run a variant of Android, but a specific API has not been revealed yet.

The other tablet is dubbed the HP 10 1900, which it is believed to be a hint at a better screen resolution. a 1280 x 800 10-inch screen is a bit dated, but something more dense would be appreciated. While it is know that the Slate 10 will be an Android tablet, nothing was noted about the HP 10 190o’s operating system.

Both tablets have similar specs, too. Each will have GSM and CDMA capabilities, standard WiFi credentials, and Bluetooth 3.0. The Slate 10 is also said to be offered in WiFi or 4G variants, and support Micro SD Card storage as well as sport a front and rear camera. While they are not the best tablet, or maybe tablets, you can get with Android, the price will be the real determining factor.

ASUS To Make Google Nexus 10 – 2013 Edition

According to sources from @evleaks, ASUS is taking the step in making the new Google Nexus 10 Edition. If it turns out to be true, ASUS would become the maker to both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets for Google, and that’s a good thing. Considering the amazing device that the new Nexus 7 2013 is, we are looking forward to seeing what ASUS has done with the new Nexus 10. One thing is guaranteed, and that is an appreciable build quality, much better than Samsung’s plastic toy, the Nexus original 10.

This way Google will secure the series of its own Android devices, with the Nexus 7 – 2013 Edition – slate, already out, the Nexus 5 handset fast approaching, and now the last piece of the puzzle shown in preparation.

The Google Nexus 10 already leaked out once in an UK electronics retailer inventory with a pricing of $399 ( £349 ) or the original Nexus 10 pricing. Asus also makes Google’s 7″ Nexus tablet, and this year surprised us very pleasantly with a Full HD screen resolution at a rock bottom price, so we can only imagine what it would do with 10-inch, but we don’t know exactly what it will be based on quite yet.

The chances are great that the new Nexus 10 will be based off the Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T, which has a brilliant 2560×1600 pixels display making it only the third 300ppi Android 10-inches, and its brilliant IGZO technology will allow up to 13 hours of battery life on a charge, as claimed by Asus. The slate is powered by a quad-core Tegra 4 chipset, has 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, cameras with zero shutter lag and HDR abilities. Last but not least, it measures only 263 x 180.8 x 8.9mm and just 585g of weight, despite the metallic chassis, though we don’t know if the exact same design will be kept by Google.

The expected pricing of the new Nexus 10 2013 is around $399 ( £246 ) for the base model, but no word on a launch date as of yet, but it could happen before the end of this year.
