Comments about Hewlett Packard HP Slate7 7.0" 8GB Tablet featuring Android 4.1 Jelly Bean - Silver:
Overall I like the tablet. However, it doesn't hold a charge as long as I wish, even if I'm just carrying it in my purse and not turning it on that frequently. Otherwise it was a great value & I just ordered 2 more of them for my grandchildren.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

a very good product
from North Carolina
I purchased this for my son; the only thing misleading was that there was not enough info as to what would be needed, also showed that the charger pack was recommended, there was one with the product,, and not enough info as to what could be used to get on the internet,, could do nothing with it until that was done. However, if you could just recommend a "hot spot" or on-the-go device, it would be a great help. Other than that, it is a wonderful product; got him hooked on it already!

great product for the price
from Csastle Rock, WA
Does everything I've asked it to do and then some, with great battery life.
Easy to use
from Pittsburgh, PA
This is a very easy to use inexpensive device. The screen is perfect size and when playing games on it I found it to have a faster response time then that of the smart phones. I also like that there is no "plans" for the slate that would add additional monthly charges.
Beautiful image, loads webpages quickly

Fast loading of pages and beautiful graphics makes this a great value. Sturdy too.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This is great little tablet, perfect for my needs
I was hesitant to buy another HP tablet. I had purchased one of the original TouchPads and was obviously disppointed when HP dropped the operating system. I was also concerned that the low price of this tablet might indicate that is is an inferior product in some way. Despite my initial reservations I am very happy with this tablet. It is a great little product! I had read about the audio output being a little low and the screen being less vibrant than Nexus, but they both work fine for me. Actually there is very little I don't like about the tablet. I think HP has designed an elegant solution and they offer it at a low cost. Although you can spend more money for a few features that slightly exceed those of the Slate, in my opinion it is unnecessary. This tablet more than meets my needs. Thanks HP!!
The battery lasts a very decent amount of time. It has enough memory for a basic use and is able to add up to 32GB micro SD card. It has playstation store accessibility. It has OK range of picking up WiFi, and the Bluetooth is OK also.
A real miss!
First off, it seems to be a decent tablet at a decent price. Now, if you want to run ANY of the most popular android apps on this tablet then dont buy it, period! I would venture a guess that 90% of the most popular apps require you to have gps, the Slate 7 does not have gps which is a real disappointment . Had I did my research first before purchasing this I would have chosen to look elsewhere. Other than missing the GPS, it's a fine tablet for the money. I would have gladly paid a little more for this feature to be included. I also bought the case which is excellent, if you buy the Slate get the case too.

Overall we are very happy with our HP Slate 7 tablets. I got mine to read books on when my Nook died, and the Nook App works great, and my son loves to play games on it. I got one for my husband and he does email on his, reads books, plays games and surfs the internet. It transitions well from horizontal to vertical, and screen display and touch work very well. There is a wide variety of apps, and all that we have tried work well on the Slate. Good value! I have two suggestions for the next version, a longer power cord (way too short), and longer battery life with WiFi on. When WiFi is turned on, the battery does not last a full day.
