The HP Slate 7 HD is running Android 4.2.2. The tablet ships with a free 200MB-per-month data plan that lasts for two years, courtesy of T-Mobile, so you can browse the Internet away from Wi-Fi.
The tablet's textured back cover looks like perforated leather. It's a similar texture found on the original Nexus 7. Like other new tablets in HP's Slate lineup, the Slate 7 HD has Beats Audio sound technology.
On the back of the Slate 7 is a camera, power button, volume rocker, and expansion ports.
The bottom of the tablet has a Micro-USB port for charging, a headphone jack, and the speaker grills.
HP built a stand for the Slate 7 HD tablet that's sold separately.
