    A new Android tablet from HP called the Slate 8 Pro just showed up online in a GFX benchmark. The tablet also has the internal codename, “Bodhi” and sports a powerful array of specs:
    • Tegra 4 chip clocked at 1.8Ghz
    • 8-inch 1,600 x 1,200 pixel display (250 ppi)
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 5,000 mAh battery
    • Android 4.2.2
    • A microSD card slot
    It's possible this is the new successor to the HP Slate 7, in which case, if they keep the same low-level pricing, then this tablet would be a serious competitor. Of course, it could also simply be a new addition to their lineup and might come at a higher price-point.

    We will keep an eye on this and share when something more concrete is revealed.

    The results have subsequently been removed from the website, although the folks at Notebook Italia and The Droid Guy managed to grab screenshots.
    HP recently returned to the Android tablet market with the low-end Slate 7 and the hybrid Slatebook X2.
    My question is : if it wants to be a serious competitor, shouldn't it be offering the latest update of Jelly Bean?

    You would think so.

    On that same subject, have any other tablets received JB 4.3 besides the Nexus devices?

    Close on the heels of promising faster turnaround times for operating system updates, Sony released a video of Android 4.3 Android Open Source Project (AOSP) running on the Xperia Z. The company also made available the AOSP device configurations for the Xperia Z on GitHub. If you have the know-how, you can build and flash AOSP Android 4.3 by downloading the respective device configuration.
    To build and flash AOSP Android 4.3, you need to have your device’s bootloader unlocked. All the necessary instructions for the process are mentioned in a "Readme" file at the device’s GitHub. However, early AOSP builds usually aren’t fully functional and don’t support a lot of features, so don’t flash it if you intend to use it as your main tablet. Early builds are only meant for developers so they can work with the newest software available and get familiar with the new features.
    The company is currently working on rolling out the update for the Xperia Tablet Z. The company said it is hoping to push some of its other devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to version 4.3 directly.
    Sony has admitted that the Jelly Bean 4.2 rollout for Xperia products had not been “as succinct or as timely” as the customers might have expected. The Sony Developer Blog has quite a lengthy and informative piece about how the company tries to improve and refine efforts to bring users new Android versions and updates.

    About time HP made a whole heart effort instead of just trowing out whatever and seeing if it sticks. Now lets watch if they stand by their creation by offering quality customer service.
