HP’s Slate 7, its first entrant into the Android tablet market, is almost ready for its Australian debut, with both the silver anded editions available for preorder on HP’s site for $199.
Ausdroid reader @miracleboi received a promotional email from HP’s Australian online store this afternoon. By following this link, you’ll be able to see the red and silver Slate 7 devices, which would otherwise remain hidden.
It appears that the Slate 7 will miss its initially-advised April launch window, with the promotional email advising that “soon” means “mid May”. Shipping appears to be free – at least, for orders going to Sydney.
The promotional email (shown above) perhaps also sheds some light on how HP intends to market the device in Australia. It seems likely we’ll see the tagline, “Experience amazing at a tiny price” again, and HP’s placing emphasis on Beats Audio and its own ePrint app in the marketing materials.
