    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.

    I wanted to like the HP slate 7, but since its release i think it had issues with wifi from the start. updated firmware was still not enough to correct it. hope this new one has a GPS so simple apps like speedtest.net can be installed.

    Somebody in marketing seriously missed the boat when they didn't market this as the HP SL8.
