HP re-enters tablet market with HP Slate 7 running Android 4.1 with Beats Audio for $169

HP has come out and announced that they will be launching HP Slate 7, which will be running Android 4.1 (JellyBean) and will sport a 7 inch 1024 x 600 display that HP promises will boast wide viewing angles thanks to its High-aperture-ratio Field Fringe Switching (HFFS) tech. Slate 7 is a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor that powers the whole device, and the new slate also has 8GB of built-in storage, 1GB RAM, Beats Audio and wireless printing support. Coming out in April for $169.

HP has stayed quiet by not launching anything significant in the mobile market since 2011. Since it “discontinued operations” on webOS products in 2011. Would you shell out money for an HP tablet running Android? Keeping in mind its an entry-level offering, do the specs and the tablet itself justify the $169 price tag?
