PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It's officially true: Hewlett-Packard is back in the mobile race. Today, HP is announcing its first Android product: the HP Slate 7. But it looks like the company won't be making a splash right away: Starting at $169.99, the new device will launch this April with a fairly unimpressive set of specs." As I've been working my behind off on a huge Palm article, HP turns around and slaps this thing in my face. You had one job, HP.

The OS should be vanilla and based on at least Jelly Bean, but the Nexus 7 does leave some gaps in its specs waiting for someone to fill them. Most obvious are a rear camera (which is the only sensible way to scan QR codes or take photos to be honest) and an SD card slot.

I'm hoping somebody will step up one of these days with a high-end 7" tablet running stock Android, with an SD card slot, HDMI out, and hi-res resolution. As it is, everybody seems to be shooting for the bottom of the barrel. I saw Samsung had announced an 8" tablet that looked decent, but then you don't have stock Android anymore. Keylime Pie? Maybe in late 2014, if you're lucky ;)
