HP has dropped the price of its Android-powered Slate 7 budget tablet from $169 to $139.  This price change is showing right now on HP’s online store and all new Slate 7 orders will feature this $30 price difference. It’s not yet clear if this $30 price drop is meant to clear out inventory for the discontinuation of the tablet or is just a general price drop.

The Slate 7 tablet was released a few months ago in February at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, Spain. The tablet is meant to cater to the low-end Android tablet market and undercut the price-tag of the ever so popular Google Nexus 7 that comes in at $199. The HP Slate 7 is a 7-inch Android-powered tablet that is currently running Android Jelly Bean. The device offers a dual-core 1.6GHz Cortex-A9 CPU and 1GB of RAM. These specifications are lower than that of the Google Nexus 7, but with a price-tag of only $139, we’re expecting it to appeal to a totally different crowd.
